Flint River BBQ, Camping and Paddeling Trip

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

Join the Georgia Conservancy, Keeping It Wild, REI and the Gerald I. Lawhorn Scout Camp on September 14th and 15th for an adventure weekend that includes outdoor recreation, bluegrass and great food!

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).

Sunday morning's family-friendly paddle trip on the Flint will launch at 10:00 a.m. Canoe and paddling equipment is provided.

Gear, meals, activities and entertainment are all included in the cost, which is $75 per person and $245 for a family or a group (max of 5 people). We will offer tent camping, 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 people who may need help setting up a tent.

Please pre-register. Walk-ups for the overnight event are discouraged.

    I've never kayaked/canoed before... can I come? Do I need my own kayak/canoe? I wasn't sure if "equipment is provided" included all the stuff for newbies. =)

      Cam, this trip is for beginners! We would love for you to come. All equipment is provided (which is why this trip is such a great deal for the price).

      Thanks! I can't come Saturday b/c I'll be bellyaking on the Cartecay... is it okay if I just come Sunday? I don't want to mess up the flow of things but I could really use the experience!

    Hi Bryan-It's the Bishops again. I would like to bring the kids on this trip. I have questions. Are there sit on top kayaks available? How do we reserve to sleep in the platform? Since we are members what would be the cost? Not sure how many of my kids can go at this moment.

      It's a 3.5 mile paddle down from the bridge near Woodburry back to the scout camp.
