Here at camp, we love nothing more than days spent watching our guests enjoy themselves at camp. This year, in particular, family reunions are proving to be extremely popular and in the season ahead the campground will be filled with campers, young and old, experiencing memories that will last a lifetime.
Sure, traditional smores are delicious. We hope everyone’s childhood is filled with memories of over-charred marshmallows, melting Hershey’s chocolate, and crumbly Graham Crackers. There will always be a place for these treats. However, have you considered banana boat smores as a fun new alternative?
Camp Cooking. There is almost nothing like enjoying a meal surrounded by nature. Some days it is a joy to spend a lazy afternoon around a Dutch Oven or planning a more elaborate dinner. But, let’s be honest, many days at camp are filled with water fun, outdoor activities, sun, and perhaps day drinking and it’s great to have a few quick and delicious meals in your repertoire. Enter one of the best chicken dishes you will ever taste.
Mornings at camp are magical. The air is still. The sounds of nature drift over the camp. Peace and quiet reigns supreme. While many of you, especially busy parents, would love to simply sit with your cup of coffee and take it all in breakfast still needs to be dealt with. Enter one of the tastiest, and easiest, camp breakfast we know. And the BEST part is that it works for even the pickiest eater!
Everyone who has a Dutch Oven knows how fantastic they are. Everyone who has ever camped near someone with a Dutch Oven dreams of having one. One of our favorite things to cook in the Dutch Oven is amazing bread.
Fall camping is some of the best out there. Days are often sunny and bright, nights crisp and cool. This fun has been dampened a bit in recent weeks with the stage 2 fire ban in effect. No more. Free firewood once more reigns at Camp Coeur D’Alene!
One of the true joys of so many of life’s best memories comes from dining al fresco. Whether with your toes in the sand on a Mexican beach, in a candlelit square in Italy, or under the stars at camp. There is just something magical about eating outside.
Perhaps it is the connection to nature. Perhaps the fresh air further whets the appetite. Whatever the reasoning, most things just taste better when eaten outdoors.
