Youth Programs

Because one of our cooperative principles is Commitment to Community, we provide opportunities for students to learn more about energy, the cooperative business model, history, government, leadership and much more.

Youth Tour

During the month of June, Indiana’s electric cooperatives sponsor a group of students going into their senior year of high school to go on a life-changing educational adventure to Gettysburg and Washington, D.C. This seven-day trip will take place June 11-18, 2023, and includes visits with your Hoosier U.S. Congressional leaders on Capitol Hill and a rally with over 1,800 student delegates from across the country.

Camp Kilowatt

Camp Kilowatt is a fun and unique camp experience for sixth-grade students going into seventh grade across Indiana. In 2023, camp takes place June 7-10, 2023, at Camp Tecumseh in Brookston, Indiana. Kids get the chance to learn more about energy while making new friends and enjoying fun activities and games.

Local Scholarships

Jackson County REMC continuously looks for ways to support our community. That’s why each year we assist our young members in their pursuit of higher education by awarding scholarships to high school juniors and graduating seniors.
