Local 8th Graders Win Trip to Energy Camp

Norman, OK—Oklahoma Electric Cooperative (OEC) sent four exceptional students to Energy Camp with 90 other eighth-graders, from across the state. The 2018 Energy Camp was held May 29-June 1 and included fantastic experiences like climbing a utility pole, getting a bird’s eye view of camp from the top of a bucket truck, a trip to Celebration Station in Oklahoma City, and plenty of swimming and sand volleyball.

The campers learned about electrical safety, the cooperative model and leadership skills. They were also given the chance to elect their own Energy Camp Board of Directors. The Board of Directors had an opportunity to interview candidates and hire a Manager of Energy Camp, from the camp delegation.

OEC was represented by Olivia Braley of Norman, Kellen Driever of Noble, Bailey Lollis of Blanchard, and Chyann Emerson of Tuttle. All four students were remarkable representatives of the cooperative and the community.

This is just one of many experiences OEC offers to area youth. You can learn more about Energy Camp and how you can join in the fun at www.okcoop.org/energycamp.
