The 2017 4-H Electric Camp is scheduled for June 27 -30, 2017. The camp is for 6th and 7th grade 4-H members as of January 1, 2017. 7th graders may return if they previously participated. Members do not have to be enrolled in the electric project to attend the camp.
Electric Camp is a fun-filled, rewarding ad- venture 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 cost for the 2017 4-H Electric Camp will be $275. This fee includes the cost of meals, lodging, field trips, programs, etc. Transportation fees are covered by members of the Tennessee Electric Cooperative Association.
Each region is eligible to send adult volunteer leaders to the camp. At least 12 camp assistants will also be selected to attend Electric Camp in a leadership capacity. Camp assistants must be senior 4-H members.
Counties will receive registration material from your regional office. Additional information is available on the 4-H website.
