At Energy Camp, students will enjoy a number of activities that combine fun and education. Not only will they be able to swim and play volleyball, they’ll also experience the life of a cooperative lineman fi rst-hand with a ride in a bucket truck and some pole climbing. Kids at Energy Camp will have fun while building valuable leadership skills that will last a lifetime. They’ll hear speakers address topics such as: Life before Electricity, Managing a Rural Electric Cooperative, and Being a Co- op Board Member. They’ll tour Caddo Electric Cooperative, witness a pole-top rescue demonstration, and visit Western Farmer’s Electric Cooperative for a facili- ties tour.
