Are you ready for a family-friendly weekend of fun and excitement on the Flint River?

Join the Georgia Conservancy and the Gerald I. Lawhorn Scout Camp on September 10 – 11 for an adventure weekend that includes outdoor recreation, bluegrass and great food!

The Flint River Family Adventure will kick off at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, September 10 at the Gerald I. Lawhorn Scout Camp in Molena, GA and will include activities for adults and children including archery, rock climbing, zip-line and hiking during the afternoon. Zip-line age limit is 13 years old.

Many of the activities are “self-guided” and guests will be given a property map and instructions on how to make it to each activity – or lead your own hike!

The fun will continue with a barbecue dinner, bluegrass concert, guest speakers, campfire-n-s’mores, an “owl prowl” and a campout (various camping arrangements provided, see trip specifics).

Sunday morning’s family-friendly paddle trip on the Flint will launch at 10:00 a.m. Canoe and paddling equipment is provided. Rivers Alive is sponsoring the paddle on Sunday and will provide free Rivers Alive shirts for folks who pick up trash on the river!

Price breakdown: Prices include all accommodations listed below

Camping: We will offer tent camping, platform camping (raised, canvas-sided tents with beds) and a separate “family friendly” camping area. For adults (without kids) interested in the Flint River Adventure we will have a separate camping area in a secluded and peaceful area of the campground along the river.
