Camp Helen State Park is offering a summer full of movies, food and fun with a series of family-oriented movies, interpretive programs, and old-fashioned campfire cookouts.
On Wednesday, July 29, “The Princess and the Frog” will be the last film shown in the 2015 series. This movie involves a hard working waitress Tiana, who dreams of owning her own restaurant. After kissing a prince who’s been turned into a frog by an evil witch doctor, Tiana becomes a frog herself. (Rated G). The interpretive program topic will be on frogs.
The evening will start at 5:30 p.m. in the Recreation Hall with a brief interpretive program led by Florida Park Rangers or other experts. The program will be followed by a cookout including hotdogs and s’mores, provided by the Friends of Camp Helen. Each evening will end with a family movie in the Recreation Hall, where seating will be provided.
A parent or guardian must accompany children.
These special movie nights are sponsored by Florida’s Department of Environmental Protection, Camping World, and the Friends of Camp Helen State Park. Admission into the park 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.
