4 Ways to Ring In the New Year with Camping Plans
There were so many fun and memorable moments in 2016 at YOGI BEAR'S JELLYSTONE PARK™! Families, from Louisiana and surrounding states, came from near and far to enjoy our campgrounds. As this year comes to an end, we’d love everyone to come together as a Yogi Bear family to recall and remember all the joyful moments shared while camping with good ole Yogi! New Year’s Eve is the perfect time to reminisce.
Before going into hibernation for the chilly Winter Season ahead, Yogi Bear left a few fun New Year’s Eve activities for families who love camping:
- Planning 2017 at Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park: Pick your favorite weekend, from late February to November and get a head start on our new camping season. New Year’s Eve and Day are times of celebration, family, and friends! Saying goodbye to 2016 and ringing in 2017 with plans for the great outdoors. Reserve an RV site, campsite, or cabin with a call to 800 349 YOGI!
- Indoor camping at home: Since Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park is closed until late February; improvise by creating a fun indoor campground with the family. Break out the sleeping bags, and build a fort. Fort-building-novices, take heart. Personal Creations has great tips for making an excellent indoor fort. Enjoy campfire snacks like s’mores and hot dogs.
- Recall fun memories: Cuddle around the home campfire or indoor campsite, and take turns sharing favorite memories from this year’s camping trips at Jellystone Park. Looking at pictures may be fun while talking about all the great times everyone had camping too! Families can use clothespins to string up pictures of past camping trip on a piece of yarn. Creative, craft-loving families may enjoy making a scrapbook together (be sure to purchase scrapbooking materials ahead of time at store like Michael’s or Hobby Lobby). Tech-savvy families may enjoy creating a camping memories PowerPoint or movie.
- Make the New Year camping resolutions as a family: After reminiscing about all the fun everyone had in 2016, look forward to the fun camping year ahead. 2017 will be filled with all sorts of fun in the New Year. As a family, come up with a few camping resolutions or wish lists for 2017. For example, family members may want to learn how to cook fresh fish or try a new campfire recipe. Other family members may be looking forward to Fourth of July at Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park. Record the family’s hopes and expectations for new camping adventures. At next year’s camping party, bring them out and see what was accomplished.
