Movies and S’mores moves OUTDOORS

FOCH adds BONUS movie night to Movie and S’mores

The seventh annual Movie & S’mores series at Camp Helen State Park has added a bonus showing of the 2019 “The Lion King” Thursday, August 5.

The evening will begin at 6:30 pm with an interpretive program, Beach Mosquito, arts & crafts, and lots of fun!  Each attendee will receive prepackaged smores to roast in the bonfires and a souvenir cup.  The movie will begin when the sun goes down.

These special movie nights are sponsored by Florida’s Department of Environmental Protection, Carpe Diem Community Solutions, and the Friends of Camp Helen State Park.  Admission into the park for this event is free for registered attendants only, 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. 

In addition to this, the Friends of Camp Helen are launching a new program to encourage beach clean-up this week.  We have mesh bags available at the kayak tiki hut for anyone who would like to pick up trash. When visitors return the bags with trash, they will receive a FREE kayak t-shirt! The kayak attendants will manage this program and can answer any questions.

More information is available at, by calling (850) 233-5059 or by emailing [email protected].

Camp Helen State Park is located at 23937 Panama City Beach Parkway (Highway 98), Panama City Beach, just west of the Lake Powell Bridge.
