9th Annual TN 4-H Electric Camp to Be Held

The 2000 4-H Electric Camp is scheduled for June 27-30. Electric Camp is a fun- filled, rewarding adventure in electricity held at The University of Tennessee, Knoxville. The camp will feature learning centers staffed by electric utility professionals. Each learning center will use hands-on activities that allow the 4-H members to learn-by- doing. Previous electric camps have received rave reviews from the 4-H members, leaders and Extension staff that have attended.

Electric Camp is for boys and girls enrolled in 4-H who are in the 6th and 7th grades as of January 1, 2000. (8th graders will NOT be eligible to participate in this year's camp.) Members do not have to be enrolled in the electric project to attend the camp.

The cost of Electric Camp is $100. This fee includes the cost of meals, lodging, field trips, insurance, programs, etc. Transportation fees are covered by members of the Tennessee Electric Cooperative Association.

Each district is eligible to send one adult volunteer leader to the camp. Leaders should have an interest in the electric project. At least six camp assistants will also be selected to attend Electric Camp in a leadership capacity. Camp assistants must be senior 4-H members.
