Each year Twin Valleys Public Power District accepts applications from area high school students to attend the NREA Youth Energy Leadership Camp at State 4-H Camp in the Halsey National Forest, usually the second week in July. The popular 5 day camp is set up to give young people a better understanding of the legislative process, electric power generation and the rural electric program. Our goal is to offer a program that challenges participants educationally, recreationally and socially.
The Youth Energy Leadership Camp is established as an operating rural electric system and provides a “hands-on” approach to member-owned businesses. The students will join high school students from Nebraska and Wyoming, along with adult counselors and junior counselors. The adult counselors are employees of rural electric systems who donate their time and talents to the camp. The junior counselors are selected by their peers to return to next year’s camp.
