The sixth annual Movies & More series at Camp Helen State Park will be offering family fun on Wednesdays, June 19, July 10 and 24.
The fun begin at 6:00 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.
On Wednesday, June 19: Dolphin Tale, (Rated PG) – A young dolphin, loses her tail in a crab trap and Sawyer, a young boy, befriends her at a Marine Aquarium. Sawyer rallies friends and family to save Winter by having a doctor build a unique prosthetic attachment to restore Winter’s ability to swim. Gulf World Marine Institute will be presenting the interpretive program about how they care for animals rescued from the wild.
These special movie nights are sponsored by Florida’s Department of Environmental Protection, Panama City Beach Convention and Visitors Bureau, 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.
