Award-winning park to honor community heroes.

Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park Camp-Resort in Sioux Falls, S.D., is honoring the true super heroes – police, firefighters, emergency personnel and armed forces – of the community the weekend of Sept. 16-18, the Brandon Valley Challenger, Del Rapids, reported.

A number of special events and program are scheduled for Saturday. A portion of the proceeds from the weekend will be donated to Operation Cares, an organization that provides support to families of service men and women who have been called away to support and defend our country.

“We’re excited to once again recognize and honor our everyday ‘superheroes’ who risk their lives helping our community,” said Donna Aljets, owner of Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park Camp-Resort. “In addition, due to the outpouring of support we had last year, we look forward to hosting a number of events that will also benefit Operation Cares.”

Activities scheduled for the day include: a rocket launcher, Humvee and obstacle course provided by the South Dakota Army National Guard; presentations on “Stranger Danger” by the Minnehaha County Sheriff’s office; the Brandon Fire Department’s fire truck; the Sanford helicopter; wagon rides; visits from Yogi Bear and Boo Boo; and an evening community bon fire.

All campsites and cabins are discounted 25% to any retired or active “superhero” with a valid ID. For those “superheroes” who are not campers, the daily admission fee at Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park is also discounted 25%.

The festivities begin on Saturday at 10:30 a.m. and will conclude around 10 p.m. The event is open to the general public. For more information, visit
