Co-op Camp Builds Future Leaders
Apply for the 2018 Co-op Leadership Camp
Applications are being accepted for the 2018 Co-op Leadership Camp, to be held June 18–22 at the NC FFA Center at White Lake. The camp is facilitated by the Cooperative Council of North Carolina (CCNC) and supported by its members, including North Carolina’s electric cooperatives.
The camp is open to rising high school sophomores, juniors and seniors. Programs concentrate on:
- The cooperative way of doing business;
- Developing leadership skills and qualities;
- Building a better understanding and appreciation for cooperatives; and
- Recognizing outstanding NC youth possessing leadership qualities.
All youth who attend are sponsored by CCNC member cooperatives, including electric co-ops, or Cooperative Extension 4H Clubs.
“This allows campers to represent their co-op or organization throughout the week of camp, and gives youth an opportunity to have a meaningful experience,” said CCNC Executive Director Emily Nail.
Applications, available online, are due May 15, 2018.
