Touchstone Energy Camp applicants now being accepted

In the past 10 years, Touchstone Energy Camp has helped to keep over 900 6th grade students safe around electricity while also enjoying outdoor camp activities. LaGrange County REMC will continue this time-honored tradition and sponsor two students to attend the 10th Anniversary Touchstone Energy Camp June 6-9 at Camp Tecumseh in Brookston, Ind. Sixth grade students eligible to attend should fill out an application and return it to Sherryl Rhinesmith at the LaGrange County REMC by Feb. 23.

The two students selected to participate in the three-day program will enjoy traditional outdoor camp activities such as horseback riding, zip lining, and swimming while also receiving a lesson in safe electricity, a live line safety demonstration, and bucket truck rides.

“This is a fun and exciting way for students to learn about electric safety and the role of electric cooperatives in their community,” said Mark Leu, CEO of LaGrange County REMC. “On top of that, they get to experience all the fun of camp.”

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 RECs, and local sponsors.
