Every year, Orange County REMC accepts applications for the Youth Tour to Washington, D.C., and Touchstone Energy Camp at Camp Tecumseh in Brookston. These opportunities have been a great way for the co-op to connect with our youth and provide amazing educational opportunities.
Shortly before the events were scheduled to occur, our national and statewide associations made the decision to cancel both programs due to COVID-19. The health and safety of the tour delegates and campers are everyone’s primary concern.
However, we wanted to be sure that these students were acknowledged as being chosen to attend these events, even though they were canceled.
