Flint River Family Adventure
Molena, GA

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

Join the Georgia Conservancy and REI at the Gerald I. Lawhorn Scout Camp on September 8th – 9th for an adventure weekend that includes outdoor recreation, live music and great food!

The Flint River Family Adventure will kick off at 12:00 p.m. on Saturday, September 8th 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.

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, live music, guest speakers, campfire-n-s’mores, a night hike and a camp out.

Sunday morning's 3 mile family-friendly paddle on the Flint will launch around 10:00 a.m. and we should be off of the river by 1:00pm.

In-kind donors and local food producers we will be enjoying during our Flint River Family Adventure: Sweet Grass Dairy, and Cafe Campesino Coffee.
