hat happens when you bring together almost 90 excited eighth-graders at a camp designed teach them about electric cooperatives? You get YouthPower Energy Camp.


The students come from all across the state and are chosen by their electric cooperatives to participate in WKH IRXU GD\ IXQ ¿OOHG DGYHQWXUH DW Canyon Camp just east of Hinton. The students representing Northwestern Electric at the 2016 camp were Payton Gregory, D.W. Moffet, Morgan Mc- Gaha and Jasmine Hagemeier. The four students had submitted their winning essays about what they would miss without electricity and why back in March. After waiting two long months, they met early in the morning on the Tuesday after Memo- ULDO 'D\ DW 1RUWKZHVWHUQ¶V RI¿FH LQ Woodward. Once they loaded their belongings in the Suburban, they were off to have some summer fun. After they arrived, the campers got settled in their cabins and then gathered together to meet their new friends, hear a few rules and listen to a presentation about life before electric- ity. They also heard about what it means to be a manager or a coopera- tive board member.


After a break to enjoy a little bit of free time swimming, playing volley- ball, basketball and dinner, the camp- ers gathered again to play some crazy games. The evening concluded with the formation of a Coke and Candy Co-op followed by an Energy Battle. The Energy Battle is a game of trivia questions about electric cooperatives and pop culture.
