How Do I Know My Child Is Safe?
Children are supervised in cabins, in classes, at meal-time, all the time.
Sometimes Rockdale County 4-H’ers will be supervised by other county leaders during the day activities. All leaders on 4-H
property for camp have been trained by Extension Agents following the Georgia 4-H Overnight Chaperone Guidelines.
Before leaving you will turn in a completed 100 A Medical form (White Form).
This is an insurance form that allows the
Rockdale County Extension 4-H staff to seek medical attention for your child in the case of an emergency. Your child is
covered by the Georgia 4-H camp insurance during the week of camp. Please list the medication, times to be given, and
amounts on this form. All medication will be kept with a Rockdale County Extension 4-H Staff member. If you do not fill out this
form prior to camp, the 4-H staff will not administer any medication. Medications include anything from Tylenol and Pepto-
Bismol to Claritin and Flonase.
Please notify the 4-H office before June 13th if your child’s medical condition changes. Our major goal is to keep your child
safe and well during the week.
If your child’s doctor prescribes medication for hyperactivity during the school year, please consult with him or her about your
child taking the medication during the week of camp. This helps everyone have a more productive week.
Occasionally, a 4-H’er will become homesick. If this situation occurs, the 4-H staff and volunteers will do everything possible
to help the child remain at camp. Allowing the child to call home is not the first course of action because calling home tends to
make matters worse. We make sure the child is involved in activities and has friends to get their mind off the home sickness.
Usually home sickness is temporary and hits around Wednesday of camp. If the child becomes physically ill due to the homesickness, parents will be contacted to come get their child.
Please do not ask your child to call home during the week of camp. “No news is good news!" Phones are not accessible to campers. Rockdale County Extension 4-H Staff members will contact you if necessary.
In case of a family emergency and you need to get in touch with your child, call the Rock Eagle 4-H Center (706) 484-2843.
If you plan to pick up your child from camp during the week, you must inform the Rockdale County Extension 4-H Staff of your plan, date, and time in writing prior to camp. A child may NOT be taken from camp without a Rockdale County Extension 4-H Staff member present. If you plan to visit camp at any time you must inform the 4-H staff as well as fill out a Visitor’s Request Form to be given to security at the guard shack.
What Rules & Discipline Measures are
Expected behavior of 4-H’ers are listed on the blue Code of Conduct form. Each parent and child signs this form before every 4-H activity.
All 4-H’ers are expected to treat others nicely. No “bullying” is tolerated.
If a 4-H’er breaks the code of conduct by fighting or using fowl language. Parents will be notified to come pick up their child.
We will do what we can to correct minor misbehavior but consistent misbehavior or major violations of the code of conduct will not be allowed.

Where Do Campers Stay While at Camp?
Can They Room With Their Friends?
Campers sleep in cabins. 4-H’ers sleep on bunk beds with approximately 20 campers per cabin. At least one adult and one teen leader will be in each cabin with the 4-H’ers. Bathrooms are in the cabins at Rock Eagle. All showers have liners for privacy.
4-H’ers can request who they would like to room with. However, the Rockdale County 4-H staff reserve the right to rearrange 4-H’ers within cabins if there is a problem during the week. 4-H’ers need to make sure they will be rooming with friends that will not create a situation that will result in trouble during the week.
What Do They Eat All Week?
Three meals per day in the dining hall. Rock Eagle has great food.
Snacks are available from the canteen.
Parents please talk with your child about the importance of eating ALL meals during the week and drinking plenty of water. Not eating meals and eating an abundance of junk food can lead to stomach illness. Not drinking enough water can lead to dehydration.
4-H’ers in need of a special diet due to food allergies or other medical conditions NEED to inform the 4-H office at least 2 weeks prior to camp.
During the week of camp there will be a competition between the 3 tribes. The Cherokee, Muskogee, and Shawnee tribes compete for the coveted “Tribal Shield”that is awarded on Friday morning. Each tribe is awarded points during the week for cleanliness in their cabin/camp area, enthusiasm at Tribal meetings, being on time for classes, lights out on time, etc. Your registration for camp includes a Rockdale County 4-H Camp t-shirt & water bottle. These shirts & bottles will be distributed Thursday night during camp. All 4-H’ers will be encouraged to wear their shirt for the return trip home on Friday.
