Georgia 4-H is in the process of replacing the 54 Rock Eagle 4-H Center cabins at a total cost of $25 million. To date we have secured $12.5 million in state-appropriated funds and $2.8 million in private commitments and pledges.

Eleven new cabins have been completed and are in use; five others are under construction and will be opened June 2014. Construction began on six cabins in April 2014. We have funding available to complete 12 additional cabins for a total of 34 cabins. The remaining 20 cabins can be completed at an estimated cost of $10.15 million or $500,000 each.
