Bartholomew County REMC is pleased to announce they will once again sponsor 2 students to attend Touchstone Energy® Camp to be held June 7-10, 2017, at Camp Tecumseh in Brookston, Ind. For thirteen years, Touchstone Energy® Camp has educated over 1,000 sixth grade students about how to stay safe around electricity, while also providing campers a chance to make friends from around Indiana and enjoy a variety of outdoor activities.
This is a fun and exciting way for students to learn about electric safety and the role of electric cooperatives in their community. On top of that, they get to experience all the fun activities and social aspects of summer camp.
Sixth graders from across Indiana will enjoy three days of exhilarating outdoor activities like zip lining and rock wall climbing, as well as traditional camp activities, such as horseback riding, canoeing and swimming. Campers will also participate in interactive lessons about safe electricity, working together in a hands-on equipment connect simulation and wiring a table top demo to light up a bulb. They’ll even enjoy a birds eye view of their friends during bucket truck rides with lineworkers.
Current sixth grade students are eligible to attend. Fill out an application and return to Bartholomew County REMC by March 18th, 2016. TRANSPORTATION TO AND FROM CAMP WILL BE THE PARENT’S RESPONSIBILTY.
The Touchstone Energy® Camp program was developed by a committee of electric cooperative employees from around the state of Indiana. It is funded in part by Hoosier Energy, Wabash Valley Power Association, Indiana’s Rural Electric Cooperatives, Indiana Statewide Association of REC’s, and local sponsors.
