Ch­e­sa­peake Girl Scouts to com­pete in Nat’l. S’mores Day

Record Observer - - News -

CAM­BRIDGE — In cel­e­bra­tion of Na­tional S’mores Day on Wed­nes­day, Aug. 10, Girl Scouts of the Ch­e­sa­peake Bay will be com­pet­ing in a s’mores-mak­ing con­test, trans­form­ing 3,600 gra­ham crack­ers, 3,600 marsh­mal­lows and 1,800 choco­late bars into the camp­fire treats.

The event will be hosted by Hy­att Re­gency Ch­e­sa­peake Bay Golf Re­sort, Spa and Ma­rina in Cam­bridge. The win­ning team will take home the Golden S’mores tro­phy and the ti­tle of Sen­sa­tional S’mores Mak­ing Scouts.

In ad­di­tion to the Eastern Shore coun­cil, teams of Girl Scouts rep­re­sent­ing Bal­ti­more, Philadel­phia, and Wash­ing­ton, D.C. will par­tic­i­pate. Their stay at the Eastern Shore re­sort will be de­voted to s’mores-themed team build­ing events that cel­e­brate the sig­na­ture Girl Scout treat. Hy­att Re­gency Ch­e­sa­peake Bay will make $1,000 con­tri­bu­tions to each coun­cil in at­ten­dance and will pro­vide each Girl Scout with a com­pli­men­tary evening at the re­sort.

As the 2015 cham­pi­ons, Girls Scouts of the Ch­e­sa­peake Bay will be seek­ing to de­fend their ti­tle. Last year, their team­work and grace un­der pres­sure helped them dom­i­nate the in­au­gu­ral com­pe­ti­tion. This year the Bal­ti­more, Philadel­phia and Wash­ing­ton, D.C. teams will be aim­ing to hone their tech­niques and claim the tro­phy for them­selves.

Lenita Wes­son, anchor for “Good Morn­ing Del­marva,” will ser ve as the Ch­e­sa­peake Bay’s hon­orary team cap­tain. A for­mer Girl Scout, Wes­son is sup­port­ing the troop’s so­cial me­dia cam­paign and pro­vid­ing guid­ance for the girls as they pre­pare for the event. She will also join the scouts at the re­sort, where she will cheer them on take part in some of the gooey, messy fun.

The Aug. 10 fes­tiv­i­ties will also in­clude a com­pe­ti­tion be­tween coun­cil CEOs and a “Girl Scouts’ Iron Chef Battle,” in which teams must cre­ate an orig­i­nal s’mores-themed treat us­ing a mys­tery in­gre­di­ent. Hy­att Re­gency Ch­e­sa­peake Bay Ex­ec­u­tive Chef Tom Ol­son will judge the dishes on taste, pre­sen­ta­tion, team­work, clean­li­ness and cre­ativ­ity.

The four par­tic­i­pat­ing coun­cils launched their own S’Mores Day so­cial me­dia cam­paigns July 20, us­ing the hash­tag #na­tion­alsmores­dayhrcb. They will also pro­duce and shoot four pep rally videos to be posted on Face­book this week. The video gar­ner­ing the most “likes” will earn a spe­cial sur­prise dur­ing a cel­e­bra­tory lun­cheon at the re­sort on Aug. 10.

Par­tic­i­pat­ing coun­cils in­clude: Girl Scouts of the Ch­e­sa­peake Bay, Girl Scouts of the Na­tion’s Cap­i­tal, Girl Scouts of Cen­tral Mary­land and Girl Scouts of Eastern Penn­syl­va­nia.
