Welcome. More than three years ago, Tally Connection was launched with a simple idea to connect readers to information, helping all to make the most of living in our beautiful and lively community. At that time and to this day, we're driven to provide free resources to you and free advertising and promotion to local businesses, organizations and nonprofits, to provide useful resources to all as a service to our community, promoting local living, and to support our communitys' nonprofits and charities in every way possible. Whether you’re here for the first time or back to see what’s new today, thank you for visiting. We welcome you to visit often for local events and deals, to browse our blog, to choose a restaurant or museum to visit, to plan a day outdoors or to share with your neighbors. Every visit helps us do more for you and our community.

Tally Connection is proudly brought to you by FSU Credit Union

ReThink Energy Florida Energy Camp @ Unitarian Universalist Church
Jul 23 @ 9:00 am – 4:30 pm

Energy CampIt is designed to teach children the impact of fossil fuel usage, the options of renewable energy, and the fundamental skills that will be required to downsize our energy use and environmental impact. It accepts children of rising grades 3-6. Cost to participants is $150, but is offered on a sliding scale so that no child will turned away!! Because of the money raised by our Energy Ball, last year we were able to provide 19 full and partial scholarships to those children who needed them. No child was turned away, and none will be this year, thanks to another successful Energy Ball!

More About the Camp

Energy Camp is an annual summer camp designed to teach children the impact of fossil fuel usage, the options of renewable energy, and the fundamental skills that will be required as we downsize our energy use and environmental impact. At Energy Camp children get hands-on experience relating to climate change, the depletion of fossil fuels, and solutions!

During Energy Camp I campers get to make their own solar ovens and a solar bug. The energy campers also will learn about fixing bikes and growing food! During Energy Camp II they get hands-on experience with other forms of Renewable Energy. We also will be exploring the relationship between food and energy in-depth, and kids will be finding out what to do about it in their own backyard!

Energy Campers learn how they can make a difference in a big way; and even make their own personal plan for how they plan to do so in the future. Energy Camp results in a real impact on the carbon footprint for attendees!
