Camping-Themed Birthday Party Ideas

Great Camping Tools

Hosting a birthday party in the great outdoors is a wonderful way to celebrate your little "cub" turning another year older. At YOGI BEAR'S JELLYSTONE PARK™ in Robert, Louisiana, we have many amenities so party guests can enjoy a fun-filled birthday party at our Louisiana campground. If your little "cub" simply loves the outdoors and camping, throw him or her a camping-themed birthday party at Jellystone Park! Below are some inspirational ideas for your camping-themed birthday party. 

Birthday parties at Jellystone Park 

Jellystone Park is a great place to host your spring or summer birthday party. We offer birthday party packages from March 1st through November 30th for children ages two through twelve. When you book your party with us, party guests will have all-day access to use our swimming pools, "spray" ground, playgrounds, and mini-golf. You'll also have access to the picnic area for three hours during the day. Our birthday packages include cake, ice cream, punch, and favors for party guests as well. The birthday child also gets a YOGI BEAR™ goodie bag with a T-shirt, punch ball, and Yogi Bear stuffed animal. Birthday packages start at $20 per person with an eight-person minimum. For additional space, you can rent out our gazebo for a flat per-day fee. We can also provide pizza for your guests for an additional fee. Learn more about our birthday party packages on our website.


By hosting your birthday party at Jellystone Park, there will be plenty for party guests to do. These activities including swimming, hiking, mini-golf, and more! Our large outdoor play areas are also great for group activities like backyard-style games. From obstacle courses, tag, and capture the flag, give party guests a dose of nostalgia by playing the games you once enjoyed as a kid. If you need more inspiration for group game activities, see our previous post on field day activities at Jellystone Park


Having your camping-themed birthday party in the great outdoors means many of the decorations are already taken care of. Just look around at the natural beauty of our campground for decoration ideas! Simply adding a few mason jars, burlap, and flannel accents should be all you need to make this camping-themed birthday party a hit.


Cake, ice cream, and punch are included with our birthday packages at Jellystone Park. However, there are some interesting ways you can incorporate the camping theme with snacks and food during the party. Fill up large mason jars with various items like pretzels, nuts, M&Ms, raisins, and dried fruit and make a trail mix station. Let party guests grab simple brown paper bags, create their own mix, and shake it up to enjoy. You can also create "fish bait" or "fishing rods" with gummy worms attached to dowel rods. Grill your own hamburgers or hot dogs for a classic, easy camping meal or purchase them from Cindy's 19th Hole on site. 


Party guests will each receive a souvenir cup as part of your birthday package, but you may want to add a few additional items in each goodie bag. Embrace the camping theme and place favors in bindles (also known as "hobo sacks"). Simply gather up items like small toys, candy, and other knick-knacks into a bandana and attach it to a medium-sized stick. Make sure you get a picture of all your party guests lined up with their sacks! Another idea is to place s'mores supplies in plastic bags as favors.
