After a two-year hiatus and a name change, Camp Kilowatt (formerly Touchstone Energy Camp) re-energized from June 8 to 11 at Camp Tecumseh in Brookston, Indiana.
This fun, powerful and unique experience brings incoming seventh graders to a 650-acre campground for a combination of traditional camp activities (e.g., archery, ziplining, swimming) and educational opportunities in alternative energy, internet safety, electricity generation, and transmission, and more.
Developed by a committee of electric cooperative employees from Indiana, Camp Kilowatt is funded in part by Indiana’s electric cooperatives, Hoosier Energy, Wabash Valley Power Alliance, Indiana Electric Cooperatives, and other industry partners.
Many thanks to Tipmont REMC’s Board of Directors for supporting attendance this year for 10 young people who call our service area home!
