Attention All Eighth Graders!

Youth Power Energy Camp is designed to help you develop your leadership skills, have summertime fun, and at the same time learn about one of rural America’s most important industries – rural electrification.

As one of the outstanding young people selected to participate in the Electric Cooperatives of Oklahoma Youth Power Energy Camp, you’ll enjoy the pleasures the Canyon Camp offers – from volleyball tournaments and swimming to hiking and roasting marshmallows over an evening campfire. And best of all, you’ll make friendships that will last a lifetime!

Join us at Canyon Camp, near Hinton, OK, where you’ll experience first-hand the exciting world of rural electricity – watch safety demonstrations, climb a pole, watch a co-op crew at work, and tour one of the most extensive generating facilities in Oklahoma. Plus you’ll have the opportunity to sharpen your leadership skills by working with new found friends from every corner of the state to set up and run your own cooperative business.

Eighth graders entering this year’s essay contest should live in a home that receives electrical power from Kiamichi Electric Cooperative. Essay submissions should be 200 words or less in length and the theme is: What I would miss the most without electricity and why. Completed essays are due at the Cooperative office by 5 p.m. on Friday, April 6, 2018. Essays can be typed or neatly handwritten.
