Each summer, more than 80 eighth graders from across the state gather at Canyon Camp near Hinton, Oklahoma, for Energy Camp. These students are chosen by their local rural electrical cooperatives to attend camp. The four-day experience – held May 27 – May 31 this year – is designed to teach leadership skills while giving students a glimpse into the world of rural electrification. Campers participate in team building activities, hear from motivational speakers, learn about electrical safety, electric vehicles, the life of a line worker and more. A highlight of the camp is the opportunity to climb an electric pole and ride in a bucket truck. This year, Brynn Liberton, Kara Meyers, Jacie Schneeberger and Emmalyn Grantz represented Kay Electric at Energy Camp 2024. The four students submitted winning applications in Kay Electric’s Youth Contest last winter. Energy camp is coordinated by the Oklahoma Association of Electric Cooperatives and sponsored by rural electric cooperatives.
