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. Each year, OEC sponsors two students to the camp at Canyon Camp, near Hinton, Oklahoma, May 26-29, 2020.
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, watch a co-op crew at work, and create and run a co-op business. 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 OEC’s service territory are eligible to compete for a spot at Energy Camp.
