Serendipity

Registration begins: August 9 at 10 a.m.

A weekend at Serendipity gives moms (or aunts, grandmothers or other special women) and their girls an opportunity to spend time together without any distractions. Serendipity is held at Camp Meriwether, near Newnan, GA and is the picture perfect setting to re-connect.

Choose from a variety of accommodations and enjoy cooking in the great outdoors using camping equipment in unique ways or have someone else do the cooking by going to a restaurant nearby.

Do as much or as little as you like, by dropping in at activities like arts and crafts, canoeing, archery, games and so much more! Optional activities include horseback riding, the challenge course, and a delicious Sunday breakfast buffet -offered for a small additional fee.
