The Lessons of the Christmas Season from YOGI BEAR’S JELLYSTONE PARK™
Merry Christmas everyone! As all of us in Louisiana know, some of life’s sweetest lessons are best taught in the great outdoors. From school-aged children to retired adults, there is always something to learn at Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park here in Robert, Louisiana. Whether our campers enjoy an opportunity to learn about nature or reflect on the wonders around us, spending time unplugged and out in the country is good for everyone. Let’s wind down the year 2015 with some positive learning in Robert, Louisiana.
- Lesson One: Charles Lindbergh once said, “Real freedom lies in wilderness, not in civilization.” In the midst of a busy holiday season, shoppers are bombarded with anxiety-provoking messages telling them to buy now and buy more. Deadlines arrive, and projects are due. Let’s face it: it’s a go-go-go time of year. Although there are many wonderful things about the Christmas and holiday season, it is often stressful. Whether campers are spending time with friends, family, or enjoying some personal time, they can relate to this quote. Stepping away from the fast-paced speed of daily life, even for a few days, can be rejuvenating. Book a weekend with us and experience the freedom Lindbergh spoke of!
- Lesson Two: “...if we can teach our children to honor nature’s gifts, the joys and beauties of the outdoors will be here forever,” Jimmy Carter once advised the nation with this powerful statement. From deforestation to melting icebergs, there are many challenges the earth is facing as we head to 2016. What’s the best way to teach children to care for our planet? By teaching them to appreciate it! If families foster a love for the outdoors, kids will be inspired to care for it. There are many activities and amenities for kids to enjoy at Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park and we strongly encourage a love of the great outdoors in the state we call our own!
- Lesson Three: Shanti said, “At the end of the day, your feet should be dirty, your hair messy, and your eyes sparkling.” There are many ways to allow this quote to come to fruition at Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park. Go fishing, canoeing, or kayaking. Play a game of basketball, or compete in a round of mini-golf. Take a swim. Go to bed campers, with eyes reflecting the starry, sparkling night sky.
Please enjoy a safe and joy-filled holiday season, and be sure to book a weekend at Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park to unwind! Been camping lately? We will see you in the New Year! Now, what do these quotes mean to you? From all of us to all of you, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year 2016!
