ENERGY CAMP Fun Times!


Three Owasso 8th Graders Learn about Co-ops and Electricity, While Having Fun at YouthPower Energy Camp


Noah Johnston, Victor Zavala, and Bryant Hall,


all of Owasso, recently returned from the 2013 Ru- ral Electric YouthPower Energy Camp, where they served as delegates from VVEC. They were among 89 outstanding 8th graders


chosen from across the state to represent their local rural electric cooperatives during the four days at Canyon Camp, just east of Hinton. They agree the camp was both fun and educa-


tional. “In my opinion, the most exciting part of the


trip was the high voltage demo of electricity,” says Hall. Zavala enjoyed the ‘No Brain Olympics,’ while Johnston enjoyed the end-of-camp dance and pizza party.


Other highlights for the Owasso trio were the


ropes course, being taken up in a bucket of a co-op utility truck, and swimming. While at camp, the delegates attended sessions


on energy, electrical safety and rural electric careers. They formed their own Coke & Candy Cooperative, along with electing a co-op manager, and board of trustees. Activities included hands-on electrical dem-


onstrations, such as pole-climbing and the bucket truck rides from lineman, the 13 low-element ropes course, swimming, an energy battle tournament and a trip to Celebration Station for video games and go-carts. YouthPower Energy Camp is coordinated by the Oklahoma Association of Electric Cooperatives and VVEC.
