Field Trips and Scouting at JELLYSTONE PARK™
Yogi Bear's greatest pal, Boo Boo Bear wants to make sure we don't forget about the little "cubs" and rangers-in-training here at Jellystone Park in Robert, Louisiana. Not only is Jellystone Park great for family vacations, but we also offer several packages and accommodations specifically for scout retreats and school field trips. Read on to learn how you can make your next field or scout camping trip an experience to remember.
Scouting at Jellystone Park
We offer the perfect accommodations for New Orleans area scouts looking for a camping trip the whole troop will enjoy!
Our Troophouse cabins were built with scouts in mind. Each house sleeps 12 people in a dorm-style cabin complete with bunk beds. Each site offers an outdoor stove (propane provided), BBQ pit, and picnic tables. Cabins also include a refrigerator, microwave, and basic kitchen utensils to make outdoor cooking for large groups easy and convenient. Rates for Troophouses range from $130—$170 per night, depending on the time of year of your stay. Take a virtual tour of the Troophouses to see what spending a night is like. Once you're ready, book your reservation here!
A former scout himself, Ranger Smith has made sure that the recreational activities offered at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park are fun and will help hone essential scouting skills. We offer a wide variety of land and water-based activities including fishing, kayak/canoeing, pedal boating, swimming, hiking, and mini-golf. We provide areas for sporting events also, including basketball, baseball, and volleyball courts. When it's time to gather scouts for group activities, our Recreation Center can accommodate the entire troop.
A great weekend to bring your scout troop to Jellystone Park is our Rake and Bake Weekend, which will be held Friday, February 22nd—Sunday, February 24th, 2019. During the weekend, we host troops from the local area to help beautify Jellystone Park for Yogi Bear and friends when they get out of hibernation in March. Breakfast and lunch will be provided on Saturday in exchange for the scouts' community service. What makes this weekend even greater is that campsites for troops are FREE (that's right—FREE) and cabin rentals are 40% off. Rake and Bake weekend is only a few weeks away, so reserve your campsite now by calling 985-542-1507.
