We’ve been waiting all year, and now the sunny season is upon us. The leaves are green, the water feels great, and it’s the perfect time for camping…but that’s not all that we’re excited about here at Jellystone Park™ Glen Ellis! With a new summer comes many other things to look forward to, and we’ve been working hard to ensure that this season is one for the books. Keep reading to see the 5 things that we’re most excited about this summer!

1. WATER FUN

The first thing that pops into our minds when we think of summer is the water, of course! Well, nothing beats escaping the heat by taking a refreshing dip in our lovely rivers. You can swim, float around in a tube, or just dip your feet in if you want! Did we mention we have a swimming pool as well? We’ll be splashing around all summer long.

2. DAILY ACTIVITIES

Starting June 18th, we will be running daily activities for our campers to enjoy! From arts & crafts projects to camp-wide games, you’re not likely to hear the words “I’m bored” during your stay! To see what upcoming activities we’re planning, keep an eye on our events page!

3. SUMMER EVENTS

Speaking of events, we’re especially excited for some of our BIG plans for this summer, like Christmas in July and Food Fest! We love our event weeks because we plan so many special activities, and we get to see a lot of spirit from our campers! If you’re interested in joining us for one of these special themes, take a look at our monthly calendar!

4. PEAK SEASON DEALS

Peak season is our Camp-Resort’s most busy time of the year — it takes place from June 18th to September 6th, and to mark the occasion, we have many deals to help you save on your trip! Check out our 4-Night deal, which will help you to save 20% on your cabin or campsite when you book for 4 consecutive nights. We’re all about staying more and spending less!

5. BEST VACATION EVER PHOTO CONTEST

Have you heard? We’re running a photo contest all summer long! How do you participate? Just take a photo during your stay, then post your pic on Instagram with @glenellisjellystone #glenellisjellystone and #bestvacationever OR share on our Facebook page. After September 6th, we will select our 5 favorite photos to be posted on Facebook for everyone to vote on their favorite featured photo! It’s time to start snapping!

Now are you excited to return to Jellystone Park™ this summer? So are we. Book your summer stay today and join us for another incredible time at camp! Between our daily activities, summer events, photo contest & more, you’ll never be at a loss for something to look forward to. Don’t forget to bring your sunscreen, tennis shoes, and beach towel! We can’t wait to  see you at check-in day.
