for 4-H Electric Camp!
The 2008 4-H Electric Camp is scheduled for June 24-27. The camp is for 4-H members who are in the 6th and 7th grades as of January 1, 2008. Electric Camp is designed for 4-H’ers who have NOT previously attended. There is no return participation. Members do not have to be enrolled in the electric project to attend the camp.
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.
“The focus of the 4-H Electric Camp is to improve young people’s knowledge of electricity, energy conservation, alternative energy sources, electronics, computer applications and electrical safety” said Mike Buschermohle, a professor in the Biosystems Engineering and Soil Science Department. “They develop a better understanding of the important role electricity plays in their lives plus they have a lot of fun and they get to make many new friends from across the state.”
The cost for the 2008 4-H Electric Camp will be $140. 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.
