Cooperative Youth Leadership Camp

Energy Camp

Attention: High School Juniors

Every July Poudre Valley REA sponsors three high school students to attend, free of charge, the Cooperative Youth leadership Camp near Steamboat Springs. Each year 100 high school students are all selected to attend camp by the electric cooperatives of Colorado, Kansas, Oklahoma and Wyoming. All expenses are paid by the participating co-ops. This is truly a special opportunity to experience the wilderness and beauty of Colorado and make memories that will last a lifetime. Students stay at the Glen Eden Resort in furnished two-bedroom, two-bath cabins complete with pool and hot tubs.

Activities include riding the gondola to the top of Mt. Werner, hiking to Fish Creek Falls, exploring Steamboat Springs and just having fun playing sports, attending the camp dance and pizza party or enjoying the hot springs pool. Students, also, visit Craig Station Power Plant, the largest electric generating station in Colorado. The central theme of the camp experience is to acquaint young people with the democratic, community-oriented principles that are the foundation of every cooperative and to help develop leadership skills by serving on committees that plan camp activities like a banquet, dance, games and daily operations. Presentations and speakers challenge campers to focus on their future goals.

Poudre Valley REA, P.O. Box 272550, Ft. Collins, CO 80527-2550, Attn: Leadership Camp.
