Cooperative Youth Leadership Camp
For nearly three decades, the electric cooperatives of Colorado, Kansas, Oklahoma and Wyoming have conducted an outstanding educational seminar known as the Cooperative Youth Leadership Camp. Every July, nearly 100 high school students travel to Clark, Colorado (north of Steamboat Springs), after being selected by their local cooperatives as participants. Selected students must reside within MCREA's service territory and their parents or grandparents must be MCREA members. Application is open to sophomore, junior, and senior students.
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 help develop leadership skills that will assist students with the challenges they will face in the future.
The 2022 CEEI Cooperative Youth Leadership Camp offers a great opportunity for high school students in MCREA's service territory to learn about cooperatives, tour a generation facility, learn about government and build on their communication and leadership skills. Unfortunately last year’s camp was canceled due to the global pandemic. We hope to continue camp in 2022, which is set to begin on Saturday, July 16, 2022 and end on Thursday, July 21, 2022.
Application Deadline: 4:30 P.M. | Friday, December 17, 2021
