Every year, Bartholomew 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.
In April, our national and statewide associations decided to cancel both programs due to COVID-19. The health and safety of the tour delegates and campers are everyone’s primary concern.
We want to acknowledge the students chosen to attend these events, despite the programs being canceled.
