Helping students grow with 4-H
Students are selected based on participation in 4-H electric demonstrations to attend the camp at UT - Knoxville to learn about electricity and electrical safety. Approximately 225 students from across the state participate in a four-day camp held on the University of Tennessee's Knoxville campus. The camp was started in 1992 as a joint effort by Tennessee's 23 rural electric cooperatives and the UT Agricultural Extension Service. Camp agenda includes hands-on learning centers, safety demonstrations, trips to Dollywood, a tour of the UT-Knoxville campus, computer centers, swimming and other camp-related activities. Participants typically build one or more projects such as an extension cord or lamp to take home. Along with the learning center activities, students will also go to Dollywood and engage in other recreational activities.
