good for tween...not for toddler Sep 16, 2009
reviewer: D. martin from
I have had experience with the 4H Center with Camps for kids/ Coosa River Camp and as a part of a group renting the area for a retreat. I have mixed review. 4H Center has great facility and programming for The Coosa River Camp and it is GREAT.The facilities are well kept and the classes are fantastic. the group stays in dorm rooms with several bunks.the Kids get a lot of food at meal time and they do a great lesson about not wasting your food. However, for a group retreat I find the camp over priced and expensive if you are on a tight budget... especially for what you get...and if you have a child 5 or younger. The food at the lunchroom is very good and the ladies are nice but you don't get very much for your money.The lunchroom is NOT toddler/young child user-friendly. There were no high chairs for small people( I did ask) and nothing to drink but LARGE glasses of water, tea, or coffee (no juice or milk...they are only available at breakfast...once again it was asked for) and no straws. They charge you the same for children's meal as adults. We spent $42 on a meal we could get at KFC for $20 (and gotten to choose what we drank.) Curiously , though the cafeteria does not accommodate young children the TV stations in the rooms are mostly geared to young children as it carries Qubo and one other christian channel just for kids. The 4H Center charges for double occupancy and then EXTRA for others that use the room. So we were charged for extra for having more than 2 children. I liked the rooms - they are VERY well kept and clean. My 9 yr old loves the bathrooms & showers- however it was kinda small for my husband. The rooms are very close to the lake and during the evening we found a live tree frog hanging around our door...It was very cool! The 4H Ctr charges extra to rent canoes or the pontoon boat and you MUST reserve those ahead of time and hire one of their lifeguards to go with you. We had a designated time we were allowed to use the pool - a three hour blog for the weekend.The pool staff were very polite, nice, and very safety conscience. We enjoyed our time at the pool. The outdoor Chapel is very nice and peaceful and is a nice walk (or it is also easily accessed by motorized vehicle if needed). It would make a lovely place for a wedding service. All buildings on campus are easy to access for those who have difficulty getting around. The Senior Citizens in our group had little trouble getting to and into any of the buildings on the campus. I probably would not refer this facilty to friends who are on a budget or have preschoolers but would refer students to the Coosa River Camp.
