A four-day action-packed adventure for eighth-graders, Energy Camp helps develop leadership skills and promotes teamwork while teaching about cooperative enterprises, the rural electrification program and electrical safety. For the first time, CVEC will sponsor two students to the camp, which will be held May 30-June 2, 2017 at Canyon Camp, near Hinton, Okla. While Energy Camp offers many traditional summer camp activities like swimming, hiking, basketball, and a ropes course, teens also have the unique opportunity to climb a utility pole, ride in the basket of a bucket truck, tour one of the largest electricity generating facilities in the state and watch a co-op crew at work. They’ll take home a new-found confidence and a host of new friends—like minded peers from all over Oklahoma.
Students currently enrolled in the eighth grade within CVEC's service territory are eligible to compete for a spot at Energy Camp.
Please check back with us in late February 2017 for all of the contest details and specifics!
Students will be required to complete an application form and submit it along with a letter of recommendation from a teacher or administrator.
