23 Crazy Stories About Camping, S’mores, And The Great Outdoors!

| Right | August 10, 2020

Dear readers,

Today is National S’mores Day! For the uninitiated, a s’more is a North American treat consisting of graham crackers, chocolate, and toasted marshmallows in a gooey, delicious combo, usually enjoyed near a campfire. There’s something incredibly satisfying about toasting a marshmallow over the fire, burning your fingers trying to mash it into a sandwich, and getting crumbs and melted chocolate all over yourself; it makes you want s’more!

To celebrate the day, we’ve assembled 23 stories from our archives about weird and wild things that happen while camping (and maybe some sweet s’more stories just for fun)! Camping is one of the precious few summer activities where you can practice social distancing, but if you can’t make it to the great outdoors, we hope this roundup will help bring the great outdoors to you!
