Beloved actor reimagines his iconic childhood role in new campaign to make making s'mores a new National pastime
Free s'mores kits available at select WorldMark resorts across the country on August 10; Tune into WorldMark Instagram stories for specialty s'more recipes inspired by the club's resort locations
ORLANDO, Fla., Aug. 6, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- WorldMark® by Wyndham Vacation Club wants all Americans to take a mini-vacation from their busy lives this Saturday, August 10, to gather together and celebrate the sweetest of holidays, National S'mores Day. WorldMark has joined forces with America's foremost s'mores expert, actor Patrick Renna -- best known for his iconic role in the 1993 classic family movie about neighborhood baseball – in a video message to encourage all Americans to embrace the classic American summer pastime of making the tasty toasted treat alongside family and friends, just like he did in the popular coming-of-age film. To inspire all Americans to join in on the fun, WorldMark will be offering free s'mores kits at select resorts this Saturday, along with specialty s'mores recipes inspired by the club's more than 100 resort locations.
As a vacation club that celebrates families coming together for annual summer vacations and sharing time with loved ones, WorldMark by Wyndham has tapped Renna –- who they've dubbed the "Sultan of S'mores" -- to remind everyone why we could all use more of the gooey, chocolaty creations. Filmed at WorldMark Park City in Utah, the tongue-in-cheek video features Renna enjoying the amenities of the resort while delivering a modern take on his unforgettable scene.
"America needs less connectivity and s'more real togetherness. In celebration of National S'mores Day, it's time to ditch our devices, gather around the campfire or grill and get to roasting," said Noah Brodsky, chief brand officer for Wyndham Vacation Clubs. "We felt Patrick was the perfect 'grahambassador', and National S'mores Day the perfect time, to help us spread the message of spending more time together," continued Brodsky.
To join in the celebration, consumers can visit the following WorldMark by Wyndham Vacation Club resort locations across the country this Saturday to pick up a free s'more kit:

Renna, who took the opportunity while filming in Park City to pass down the traditional way to make s'mores to his 2 year-old son, Flynn, wants to remind everyone how sweet it is to spend time together.
"This Saturday, gather up your friends and family, get your supplies and get together over a campfire. Scarf on, America!" said Renna.
