Orange County REMC sponsored two students at the annual Camp Kilowatt. The camp was held June 7-10, 2023, at Camp Tecumseh in Brookston, Indiana.
Students entering seventh grade this fall were eligible to attend and were selected by their local cooperative to participate in the four-day program. The students’ agenda combined traditional outdoor camp activities with environmental education, electrical safety practices, and cooperative business education.
“This was a great way for students to learn about the role of the electric cooperative in their community. On top of that, they experienced all the fun of camp,” said Matt Deaton, CEO/General Manager of Orange County REMC.
Students representing Orange County REMC at Camp Kilowatt were:
Katherine Noble, Orleans
Eli Morris, Orleans
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.
