Get ready for Electric Camp 2009!

Electric Camp is a fun-filled, rewarding adventure in electricity held each year at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville. Students this year will learn about energy, electricity and basic sciences by participating in the following learning centers: Wiring an Extension Cord, Energy Vampire Slayers, Electric Motors, Robotic Arms, Electric Vehicles, and Electrical Safety. Learning centers are hands-on activity sessions staffed by electric utility professionals that allow 4-H members to learn by doing.

In addition to the learning centers, students will also participate in many other fun-filled activities associated with 4-H Camp. There will be the trip to Dollywood, a swimming and dance party, and yes, a pizza party.

Electric Camp is scheduled for June 23-26 and is for 4-H members who were in the 6th and 7th grade as of as of January 1, 2009 and who have not attended previously. Members do not have to be enrolled in the Electric Project to attend camp.

Electric Camp is made possible through an unique partnership established between UT Extension; the Tennessee Electric Cooperative Association and its statewide member cooperatives; the Tennessee Municipal Electric Power Association and its municipal power system members from across the state; TVA; and other industry donors.
