It seems impossible to comprehend that Christmas is only 10 days away! The year has flown by and for Camp CDA it was a stellar season. With more guests than ever staying with us and dozens of family reunions, friends nights out, and family vacations we met so many wonderful folks from near and far.
Although the thermometer is dipping low in much of the country, dreams of the endless summer continues. Snow outside means making plans for a trip to the lake when the heat index increases. Holiday time with friends and family means checking dates on the calendar to head to camp. And what does heading to camp mean? What’s for dinner? A weekend away seeks easy, delicious dishes, that require little clean-up. Even a full week of holiday will do well with some simple and easy dinner fare after a long day at the lake or exploring.
From our friends at Desert Now Dinner Later we bring you Southwestern Chicken Packets. These simple to prep and easy to cook and the individual packet options allows for different taste preferences. Try them out in your oven this winter and I bet you’ll be bringing them along to camp next year!
Once again, our favorite time of year has arrived at Camp CDA! The days are sunny and comfortable and the nights crisp. The leaves are only just beginning to turn and the skies are clear and bright. Campfires burn brightly each evening, the delicious aroma wafting all over the camp.
As the days are drawing shorter and evenings begin earlier, all signs point to the end of summer.
Here at Camp CDA, we are still going strong as we welcome a nearly full campground most nights but the shorter days turn our thoughts to comfort food. This month we offer up another pasta dish, but not just any old dish. This recipe comes to us from Slow Roasted Italian’s website and is everything you could want in a meal set at camp. Beyond delicious, this dish is packed full of flavor and is also healthy. The fact that it uses just one pot is icing on the cake. Without further ado, I present a new favorite here at camp.
Camping is all about fun outdoors. Sleeping under the stars (even if you’re in an RV), cooking al fresco, and spending time outdoors. Camp has been buzzing for months now and the fun continues.
Summer is hopping here at Camp CDA and we can’t believe it’s already July! Happy guests continue to flock to camp to enjoy our amazing setting and continuing improvements. Here are just a few pics and reviews from the last month. Camp stickers are for sale in the camp store and are proving to be a popular memento of camp.
Everyone loves a one-skillet dinner but this is especially relevant when camping. Ease of prep and ease of clean-up means more time for fun! This is one of our very favorite one-skillet dinners. The recipe is Indian inspired, however, by simply changing up the spices used can lend itself to whatever flavor profile you desire. Chef Asha Gomez has created a nearly perfect camp dinner.
Camp is open and our first guests of the season are heartily embracing all of the amazing changes and updates we’ve put in process.
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.
We frequently tout our status as a “destination campground” but what does this really mean? With no Webster’s definition to be found, I offer you our opinion about how we feel here at Camp Coeur D’Alene.
