So, you've booked your camping (or glamping!) vacation near Pittsburgh at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park at Kozy Rest.  Our activities schedule is packed FULL of FUN things to do.  So, how do you decide what to do?  What is a must do or must eat?  Well, who better to ask than our Director of FUN, Ben?!  Ben knows all about fun here at our camp-resort!  If you have been here within the past two years, you have seen Ben.  Read on to find out what his top picks are for fun while camping near Pittsburgh!

Ben - Director of Fun!

Ben's Top 5 Things To Do
1.  Glow Hey Ride
  Every Tuesday night (June 7-August 19, 2021) and Friday night our guests jump on our "Hey" ride with their glow gear and take a ride around the park. (*don't forget to bring your glow gear!)  Think this is only for the kids?  Think again!  Our adult campers have just as much fun yelling "What does Yogi Bear say??!!!" while all the kids yell "Hey, Hey, Hey!"  You also won't want to miss this time because Ben gives a recap of all the scheduled activities for the next few days.

2.  Candy Bar Bingo 
SHOW ME THE CANDY!! This activity is a classic fun for all!  The fee is $1 - but if you win, you get a chance to pick a BUNCH of candy form our pic-a-nic basket!  We have been known to give away over 100 candy bars at times!  Loser BINGO is everyone's favorite - because if you have the worst card, you win! laugh

3.  Any of our Special Bear Appearances
You can catch Yogi Bear and Friends at various times throughout each day.  Depending on the theme of the week, you may play hide-n-seek, dance, catch a high five or hug, (we give out more bear hugs than the average vacation!) or just hang out with Yogi Bear, Boo Boo, Cindy Bear, or Ranger Smith.  If you want to create a more special moment with the characters you will want to book a VIB experience.  Yogi Bear hosts bedtime stories at your site, Boo Boo brings milk and cookies, Cindy Bear delivers donuts, and Ranger Smith attends the Junior Ranger Ceremony and Pledge.  For more details on each of these, visit our previous blog post on VIB experiences.

4.  Laser Tag & Archery Tag
Laser tag is our most popular teen/adult activity.  You will not find a better laser tag field around!  Music makes the experience more dramatic and night laser tag adds a whole new dimension!  Will you be our next Top Gun (most kills) or Grave Lover (dies the most)?  If you are trigger happy, you will like that we offer free ammo!!

Archery tag is NEW this year!  It is a fast paced game with rules and field similar to dodge ball.  If you can dodge a wrench, you can dodge an arrow!

5.  Themed activities & games...AND pizza
We host at least 50 different activities each week.  Kids love our decorated bike parades, wild 'n wacky relay races, freeze charades, cartoons, water games, and freaky Friday costume contest.  You will barely have a chance to eat!  But never fear - you can place your pizza order in between activities!  

PS from Ben: 
There is PLENTY more to do!!  We have family fun for all ages at all times of the day.  If your kids say they're bored, tell them to find me!

If you haven't booked, what are you waiting for?  Go here to book now! Camping near Pittsburgh doesn't get any better than Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park at Kozy Rest!  We can't wait to see you!
