YOGI BEAR'S™ Best Moments of 2015 at Jellystone Park!
It is nearly December, and most of 2015 is already behind us! What a fun year it has been here at Yogi’s Jellystone Park in Robert, Louisiana. This year, campers came from near and far, knowing there is never a dull moment with Yogi and his friends! Yogi was happy to see all the great boys and girls who stopped in for school field trips this year. The DJ’s and band weekends were also a hit for Yogi and all our campground friends. There were so many fun times that made Yogi smile this year, too. Here are Yogi Bear’s top 2015 events and favorite moments of the year according to the main bear himself:
- Yogi loves his volunteers “beary” much! The Scout and Volunteer Rake and Bake Weekend was great fun in February! Volunteers raked and cleaned up the campgrounds after a delicious breakfast. It was a great service opportunity for our area scout troops who got to camp free, and the other wonderful volunteers who received 50% off on cabin stays for being such excellent helpers and supporters! Yogi loves teamwork at his campgrounds. Working together is an essential skill for camping in our neck of the woods.
- In April, Yogi’s Horseshoe Invitational Tourney and Jambalaya Cook-Off took place. A trophy was won after our contestants got down to their Louisianan roots with a Jambalaya cook-off. It was an exciting weekend full of friendly competition and great food (not to mention good music—the DJ was there, too!).
- May and June were packed with family fun, especially during the Mother’s Day and Father’s Day weekends. Moms celebrated with a wine and cheese party with some additional rest and relaxation to kick off their special weekend. There was a band, champagne, and a yummy pancake breakfast, too! Father’s Day was also a great time for dads. Fathers celebrated with a beer party on the pool deck and enjoyed a fun Golf Cart Poker Run. The kids got to spend some time with their dads, too! There were father-son/daughter activities, tasty meals, and a band! Family time is so important, and Yogi loves to celebrate that special bond!
- Remember, the last two events of the year might make Yogi’s list! This weekend, November 20th through the 22nd, is Social Media Weekend. Sixty percent of all sites and cabins and we feature a DJ Saturday night! From Wednesday November 25th through Sunday the 29th, we have our Annual Thanksgiving and Christmas (long) Weekend with a Saturday visit from Santa Claus himself!
