Knoxville hosts 4-H Electric Camp


Fort Loudoun Electric Cooperative sent a group of five rising seventh- and eighth-grade students to 4-H Electric Camp June 28-July 1 on the University of Tennessee Knoxville campus. FLEC campers joined hundreds of other students from across the state in discovering the world of electricity by participating in various camp learning centers that provided “hands-on” activities where 4-H’ers were able to “learn by doing.” These learning centers were Electric Motors, Electric Safety, Meter Lamps, Electric Vehicles, and Energy Conservation.

This was the 25th Anniversary for the 4-H Electric Camp. The 4-H Electric Camp is a joint venture of the Tennessee Electric Cooperative Association and its member cooperatives, including FLEC; University of Tennessee Extension; Tennessee Municipal Electric Power Association and its municipal power systems; and the Tennessee Valley Authority.
