WARWICK, Ga. (WTXL)--Hundreds of people begin their week long journey, paddling down the Flint River for an educational vacation.

About 350 people are taking part. The trip is a total of 106 miles which started Saturday at Lake Blackshear and will end in Bainbridge Friday at the Earle May Boat Basin.
