3 New Year’s Resolutions that make Camping Fun!
Happy New Year 2016 and best wishes from everyone at YOGI BEAR'S JELLYSTONE PARK™ in Robert, Louisiana! Everyone’s favorite buddy, good old Yogi Bear, hopes everyone had a wonderful and memorable holiday season. Like so many of us who take part in the fun tradition of New Year’s Resolutions, Yogi is reflecting, too! First, he’d like to share the exciting news that Jellystone Park has 2016 resolutions in terms of improvements for the new season that will make the camping experience even better! With the prospect of so much positive change coming this year, Yogi thought he’d make a personal list of his own New Year’s Resolutions:
- Learn to pitch a tent: (or teach someone else how): This is a must-have skill for campers. Learn with a friend if this will be a new challenge. Are you the tent-pitcher in your family? Share the responsibility and your expertise by teaching someone how to put the tent up securely. These memories of camping beneath the stars in Louisiana will last a lifetime!
- Try something new to do when camping: It’s important to broaden one’s horizons. There are many ways to resolve this goal this year at Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park. Are you a camper who always camps outdoors? Try out a cabin. Are you always watching the dancers on bandstand weekends but never joining in? Be bold, and show off the dance moves! From exploring nature’s beauty out on the lake or learning to fish, there are many opportunities to explore new hobbies and adventures in Robert, LA.
- Spend more time unplugged: There are many advantages to today’s technology that connect people, but sometimes it can hinder quality time with loved ones. Seeing family members checking Facebook at the family dinner table? Is everyone binge-watching the latest show? Thousands of people are doing it. In fact, this is so common, that there are even new applications on Google Play and the App Store to help people unplug for a meal. While Yogi will admit he enjoys seeing campers’ posts online and staying connected through social media, he enjoys spending time away from it too. Book a weekend at Jellystone, and enjoy some quality time with family and friends. Make a conscious effort to be present in the moment in 2016.
The fresh camping season is fast approaching. This is the year good old Yogi Bear calls, “Sweet Sixteen!” Let’s make it a good one! Yogi is so excited about the pursuit of his goals this year. Which of his resolutions are you working on this year? Share your family’s camping goals for 2016 on our Facebook page. Yogi would love to hear them!
