Students: Apply Now to Co-op Leadership Camp
Cooperative Leadership Camp applications due April 30
Applications for this summer’s Cooperative Leadership Camp are now being accepted from high school students across North Carolina who want to attend as campers. This year’s weeklong overnight camp will be held June 15–19. The camp is facilitated by the Cooperative Council of North Carolina (CCNC) and supported by its members, including North Carolina’s electric cooperatives.
Hosted annually at the North Carolina FFA Center at White Lake, Cooperative Leadership Camp aims to give rising high school sophomores, juniors and seniors a better understanding and appreciation of the cooperative business model and foster leadership qualities, financial responsibility and team building skills. All campers are sponsored to attend by cooperatives or Cooperative Extension 4H Clubs.
Co-op leadership campers are also eligible for the $1,000 Jim Graham college scholarship, which they can apply for during their senior year of high school.
Applications are due April 30.
