Heads up Eighth Graders!!!
YouthPower Energy Camp is designed to help develop leadership skills, have summertime fun, and at the same time learn about one of rural America’s most important industries – rural electrification.
Each year, CKenergy Electric Cooperative joins Oklahoma Association of Electric Cooperatives and electric cooperatives from across the state in sponsoring the Youth Power Energy Camp. The camp slated for June 1 - 4, 2021, is designed to help students develop leadership skills while having lots of fun.
This year's event will be an all virtual event through zoom, interactive games and live feeds. The teens will learn about energy, electrical safety, and rural electric careers.
