Dubois REC sends 5 to energy camp

The Dubois Rural Electric Cooperative sponsored five students at the annual Touchstone Energy Camp. The camp was held June 5 through 8 at Camp Tecumseh in Brookston.

Students entering seventh grade this fall were eligible to attend and were selected by their local cooperative to participate in the three-day program. The students’ agenda combined traditional outdoor camp activities with environmental education, electrical safety practices and cooperative business education.

Students representing Dubois REC at Touchstone Energy Camp were Makenzie Buchta, Jasper; Elijah Kerby and Sofia Kerby, French Lick; and Cassidy Riecker and Lyllee Schnell, Celestine.

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, Indiana Electric Cooperatives and other industry partners.

Dubois REC is a rural electric cooperative headquartered in Jasper that serves over 10,000 members in the rural areas of Dubois, Crawford, Martin, Orange, Perry and Pike counties. For more information, visit www.duboisrec.com.
