Buddies! Welcome to Camp Pleasure!
Camp Pleasure began in the summertime of 2020 once we have been all, prefer it or not, Indoor Pandemic Youngsters. When you’ve been right here for various years you recognize that I took to the yard with my video digital camera (lol my iPhone) to make a 90’s period summer time camp for us. We made peach cobbler. I raided the craft closet and we made the daisy chains. It was A Entire Factor.
Over the previous few years I’ve been slowly been morphing right into a camp counselor. Okay, I’m principally simply carrying a shawl and cowboy boots and I really like constructing a hearth and making crafts, but it surely’s all feeling somewhat campy. To make issues even higher, Will and I get out tenting as typically as we will. Usually in his trailer, typically with a couple of bikes, and most undoubtedly with a cooler stuffed with meals I wish to prepare dinner over hearth.
It was on our final large camp of 2022, a fairly epic journey to Satan’s Den, Arkansas, that I roasted an enormous ol’ pork butt in a dutch oven over coals whereas Will caught child trouts to indicate me and throw again within the river that it hit me – I wanted to put in writing a camp cooking guide. So… I SURE DID.
Did you ask for this? I imply… not particularly. However I’m within the behavior of constructing what I really like within the hopes that you simply love or will study to find it irresistible too. That’s what camp counselors do, proper?

This little zine is strictly what I would like it to be because of the joyful design of Megan Dekok, the masterful modifying of our Abby Mallett, modifying and session from our favourite dad, Clifford Lesley, and the picture modifying abilities of our pricey Karlee Flores. I casually went out into the wild, made meals, took photos of it, and wrote all the things down.

Camp Pleasure is a self-published endeavor for one purpose. I received sick and uninterested in having my work watered down by conventional guide and journal editors solely to have them come again to inform me how disenchanted they have been in my gross sales. Not making what I would like AND disappointing massive firms who haven’t made sufficient cash off my hard-fought creativity? PASS. Y’all. I’m so over that.
