This Easter weekend, families can enjoy a fun-filled getaway at Jellystone Park Camp-Resort locations, where a range of exciting events await, including egg hunts with Yogi Bear and his friends, and Easter-themed games.
Trent Hershenson, vice president of marketing for Camp Jellystone, said, “Many of our locations offer Easter craft activities and visits from the Easter Bunny. Some even offer chocolate Easter Bunny eating contests.”
He added that due to their popularity, some locations that open later have Easter-themed weekends as late as June to ensure that families don’t miss out on the fun.
Camp Jellystone is the Southfield, Michigan-based company that franchises Jellystone Park Camp-Resorts across the U.S. and Canada.
While most Jellystone Park locations offer Easter egg hunts and craft activities, specific activities vary by location. Here’s a glimpse into some of the exciting Easter events taking place at Jellystone Park locations across the country this year:
