Canyon Camp - Hinton, OK

YouthPower Energy Camp is designed to help you develop your leadership skills, have summertime fun, and at the same time learn about one of rural America’s most important industries – rural electrification.

As one of the outstanding young people selected by your local cooperative to participate in the Electric Cooperatives of Oklahoma YouthPower Energy Camp, you’ll spend four days enjoying the pleasures the Canyon Camp offers – from volleyball tournaments and swimming to hiking and building teamwork skills on a challenging low ropes course. And best of all, you’ll make friendships that will last a lifetime!

Join us at Canyon Camp, near Hinton, OK, where you’ll experience first-hand the exciting world of rural electricity – watch safety demonstrations, climb a pole, watch a co-op crew at work, and tour one of the largest generating facilities in Oklahoma. Plus you’ll have the opportunity to sharpen your leadership skills by working with new found friends from every corner of the state to set up and run your own cooperative business.
