Programs

Parke County REMC has several options for students of different ages to participate in amazing trips and hands-on learning opportunities.

Youth Tour​ to Washington DC

(Canceled for 2021)

Every June, as many as 1,500 high school students from across the country spend a week in the nation's capital as part of the National Rural Electric Cooperative Youth Tour. The students are sponsored by electric cooperatives – cooperatives that are committed to educating America's rural youth about America and the role electric cooperatives play in developing strong rural communities. The trip features visits to the Flight 93 Memorial, the Gettysburg Battlefield, Arlington National Cemetery, the Smithsonian museums, the National Mall memorials and much more.

Touchstone Energy Camp

(Canceled for 2021)

For many years, Touchstone Energy® Camp has educated over 1,000 sixth grade students about how to stay safe around electricity, while also providing campers a chance to participate in a wide variety of outdoor camp activities.

Campers enjoy horseback riding, zip lining and swimming, while also experiencing interactive lessons about safe electricity, working together in teams in a hands-on equipment connecting simulation, and wiring a table top demo to light up a bulb.
