Hey kids! Love to camp?

Indestructible forts, crackling campfires, golden s’mores. We can all conjure a memory of camping that transports us to those simpler, wilder times.

To celebrate the start of summer, we’re launching our first ever Fireside Kids Camping Story Contest. If you’ve got littles that love to camp, tell them to enter and spill their (canned) beans.

Three lucky winners will receive a Overnighter Package for 4 people and glamorous Fireside swag!

Write a story, create a piece of art, or record an audio submission that answers one of the following three questions. For artwork, take a photo or scan and attach to your email. For audio submissions, please keep your story to a minute or less.

1. Why is camping fun?
2. What is your favorite camp food and why?
3. What is your favorite camping memory?

Email your name and entry to howdy@firesideprovisions.com by June 23rd to enter the contest! Write “CAMPING STORY CONTEST” in the subject line for extra sprinkles.

Three randomly chosen winners will each receive a Fireside Overnighter package for 4 people, plus a mystery bag of Fireside swag. We might even throw in some extra s’mores…
