Camp Helen State Park hosting movie, food and fun
Jul 27 @ 5:30 pm – 7:00 pm

The evening begins at 5:30 p.m. in the park’s Recreation Hall with a brief interpretive program led by a Camp Helen Park Ranger or other expert. The program will be followed by an old-fashioned campfire cookout of hot dogs and s’mores provided by the Friends of Camp Helen. Each evening will conclude with a family-oriented movie in the Recreation Hall, where seating will be provided.

A parent or guardian must accompany all children.

These special movie nights are sponsored by Florida’s Department of Environmental Protection and the Friends of Camp Helen State Park. Admission into the park for this event is free, although donations are accepted. Donations will go directly to the Friends of Camp Helen State Park to benefit the park’s resource management projects and interpretive programs.

The movie “Open Season” will be the last movie shown in the 2016 series. This movie features Boog, a domesticated grizzly bear with no survival skills, who meets Elliot, a scrawny, fast talking mule deer with only one antler. When Elliot convinces Boog to leave his comfortable home in a park ranger’s garage to test the great outdoors, Boog’s life spirals out of control. The two find themselves in the forest with open season only three days away. To acclimate in a hurry, they must join forces to unite the woodland creatures and take back the forest. (Rated PG). The interpretive program topic, presented by Gulf World, will be about King Snakes and Wild Animals in an urban setting.
