Rock Eagle 4H Center Cabins Under Construction
The cabin renovation project at Rock Eagle 4H Center in Eatonton, GA continues this summer, with Stafford Builders ready to forge ahead on cabins #7-12. Funds for the $2.4 million Stafford project are a combination of private donations and a $7.5 million allocation in the 2014 state budget approved last year by Gov. Nathan Deal.
Stafford construction crews will build, furnish, and install the cabins, which can accommodate up to 22 people. Each new cabin at Rock Eagle features six bedrooms with four vanity areas plus a private bath, and each is equipped with wireless Internet access.
Rock Eagle hosts more than 5,000 4-H members from across the state for weeklong camps that include outdoor adventures such as archery, canoeing, swimming, zip line outings, and sailing as well as workshops that range from forestry to entomology.
Funding is in place for a little more than half of the entire renovation project, which includes the replacement of 54 cabins. To contribute to the Rock Eagle 4-H Center Cabin Campaign, contact the Georgia 4-H Foundation Office at (706) 542-8914.
