For nearly three decades the electric cooperatives of Colorado, Kansas and Wyoming have conducted an outstanding educational seminar known as the "Youth Leadership Camp". The primary objective of the camp is to provide an educational experience for young people on the organization and operation of a cooperative. The seminar strives to develop leadership skills that will assist students with the challenges they will face in the future. The best way to learn about cooperatives is to form one, and that's what the participants do.
Youth Leadership Camp will be held at the Glen Eden Resort located in Clark, Colorado, just 24 miles north of Steamboat Springs, July 15 - July 20, 2023. Special presentations and trips highlighted at the camp include a trip to the Trapper Coal Mine and a visit to the Craig Station Power Plant. Of course, there is time for recreation. Glen Eden Resort has volleyball courts, a swimming pool, hot tubs and tennis courts. There will be a dance, banquet, trip to the top of Mt. Warner and water rafting.
The students selected to attend the 2023 camp are:
- Emeri Blochowitz of Revere High School
- Madelyn Willeke of Otis High School
Application deadline is December 16.
