Pedernales Electric Cooperative (PEC) is committed to modeling environmental stewardship and promoting conservation through its educational and community outreach programs. This summer, PEC is proud to bring back Camp Save-a-Watt™, a free, online summer camp that teaches the cooperative’s youngest members about energy conservation, nature exploration, and electrical safety. Camp starts June 6 for children in kindergarten through third grade.
Campers can participate in weekly age-tailored activities with Wattson Raccoon, PEC’s cabin leader and camp mascot. With the help of parents and teachers, Camp Save-a-Watt will teach students how to reduce their energy use and make a difference. These small but impactful habits can also support financial savings for families and schools.
This year, Camp Save-a-Watt will also feature two in-person events. There, registered campers can learn about electricity firsthand, meet a lineworker, and participate in a solar car derby.
“We’re looking forward to providing another summer of important information and learning materials to enrich the summer learning experience for students in our service territory,” said PEC Community Outreach Specialist Celeste Mikeska. “We hope these fun and engaging lessons will instill energy-saving habits at an early age to make a positive impact on our cooperative and communities for years to come.”
Upon registering, students will be mailed a free Camp Save-a-Watt T-shirt. Parents and teachers can learn more and register at camp.pec.coop. Registration closes June 1.
