(ORLEANS) - Orange County REMC will sponsor two students at the annual Touchstone Energy Camp. The camp will be held June 7-10, 2017, at Camp Tecumseh in Brookston, IN.

Students entering seventh grade in 2017 are eligible to attend and are selected by their local cooperative to participate in the three-day program. The students' agenda combines 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 and what makes the electric cooperative different from other utility business models. On top of that, they get to experience all the fun of camp," said Matthew C. Deaton, General Manager/CEO of Orange County REMC.

Students representing Orange County REMC at Touchstone Energy Camp are:
Kye Strother, son of Maryanne Knapp of Campbellsburg, IN.
Katie White, Daughter of Robert and Ashley White of Mitchell, IN.

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.

Orange County REMC is an equal opportunity provider and employer. Located in Orleans, IN., this electric utility cooperative serves over 8,000 members in Orange, Martin, Lawrence, Washington and Crawford Counties. For more information about the cooperative visit
