The Flint River Adventure will kick off at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, September 14th at the Gerald I. Lawhorn Scout Camp in Molena, GA and will include activities for adults and children including archery, zip-line and hiking during the afternoon.

The fun will continue with a barbecue dinner prepared by the award-winning Billy Steve Satterfield of Americus, live bluegrass, a speaker, campfire-n-s’mores, an “owl prowl” and a campout (various camping arrangements provided).

We will offer tent camping and platform camping (raised, canvas sided tents with beds) and a separate "family friendly" camping area. We will have "outdoor ambassadors" on hand to assist first-time campers or folks who might need help setting up a tent.
