No-fuss Backyard Camp-out

Reading Time: < 1 minute 

With a few simple supplies, your family can have an epic adventure right in your own backyard until it’s time to come back out to Arcadia Lake in Edmond. Craft a one-tree or two-tree tent by using a tarp or blanket, ropes and tent pegs or a sturdy stick. Then, whip up some outdoor fireless s’mores with this kid-friendly recipe that uses the sun as a heat source!


  • Graham crackers
  • Chocolate bars
  • Marshmallows


  1. Take half of a graham cracker and stack a section of chocolate on top.
  2. Add two marshmallows and top with the remaining half of the graham cracker.
  3. Wrap your creation in foil and place in a sunny spot. Depending on the temperatures outside, it may take up to 30 minutes to melt. Once its ooey and gooey to your liking, enjoy!
