Jay County REMC will sponsor students at the annual Touchstone Energy Camp. The camp will be held June 5-8, 2019, at Camp Tecumseh in Brookston, Indiana.
Students entering seventh grade in 2019 are eligible to attend and are selected by their local cooperative to participate in the three-day program. The students’ agenda combines traditional outdoor camp activities with environmental education, electrical safety practices and cooperative business education.
“This is a great way for students to learn about the role of the electric cooperative in their community. On top of that, they get to experience all the fun of camp,” said Mark Arnold, CEO of Jay County REMC.
The Touchstone Energy Camp program was developed by a committee of electric cooperative employees from Indiana. The camp is funded in part by Indiana’s electric cooperatives, Hoosier Energy, Wabash Valley Power, Indiana Electric Cooperatives and other industry partners.
