Construction Begins on Five 21st Century Cabins and Upgrades Sutton Hall
The original fifty-four cabins at Rock Eagle 4-H Center have served in excess of three million 4-H members and adults over the past fifty years. The cabin design from the early 1950’s was very useful and sleeps 16 in two dormitory style bedrooms with four bunk beds each. Beginning in 2009, Rock Eagle began replacing these historical cabins with their modern counterpart. The new cabins accommodate 22 people in six individual rooms, each with a private bath. One room, designated as the adult chaperone room, has two single beds while the other rooms have two sets of bunk beds. Each room offers individual vanity areas for guests. The common area of each cabin offers wireless Internet access and satellite TV.
Four or the new style cabins are in service at Rock Eagle and beginning in January of 2012, five additional cabins were demolished. Site preparation has begun and footers are already in place for the first of five new cabins that will be completed by October 2012. Funding for these cabins is being provided by the State of Georgia and private donors.
Sutton Hall, the former Rock Eagle Dining Hall, will get its final face lift during the next year as well. Plans include new windows and doors throughout, creating of a coin laundry for guests, and updates to heating, air conditioning and bathrooms. This will complete a two phase update that has created the new Rock Eagle Gift Shop and Canteen and updated the large conference facilities on either side of the building.
