Camp provides education and fun

Posted on Jul 27 2019 in Noble REMC

Cooperative, community and camp came together in June, when Noble REMC sponsored Central Noble Junior High School student Cole Lake at the annual Touchstone Energy Camp in Brookston, Indiana.

Students entering seventh grade this fall were eligible to attend. The students’ agenda combined traditional outdoor camp activities with environmental education, electrical safety practices and cooperative business education.

“This is a great way for students to learn about the role of the electric cooperative in their community. On top of that, they get to experience all the fun of camp,” said Noble REMC President and CEO Ron Raypole.

The Touchstone Energy Camp program was developed by a committee of electric cooperative employees from Indiana. The camp is funded in part by Indiana’s electric cooperatives, Hoosier Energy, Wabash Valley Power Alliance, Indiana Electric Cooperatives and other industry partners.
