Tipmont Wintek will sponsor area students at this summer's Camp Kilowatt. The camp will be held June 7-10, 2023, at Camp Tecumseh in Brookston, Indiana.
Students entering seventh grade in 2023 are eligible to attend and are selected by their local cooperative to participate in the four-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 Rob Ford, Communication Director at Tipmont Wintek.
Apply online for Camp Kilowatt by visiting tipmont.org/camp or by calling Tipmont Wintek member service at 800-726-3953. Applications are due March 1, 2023.
The Camp Kilowatt 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 Alliance, Indiana Electric Cooperatives and other industry partners.
