    Leadership Camp

    How does spending a week in Clark Colorado, north of Steamboat Springs, at the Glen Eden Resort sound? You could be a participant in a week long educational experience offered through La Plata Electric Association, Inc. (LPEA).

    You will learn about the issues surrounding the electric industry,
    how our government works, and discuss current issues with state congressional representatives. Your experience will be shared with nearly 100 of your peers from Colorado, Kansas, Wyoming and Oklahoma. While the trip is not billed as a vacation, you will be entertained with a dance, volleyball tournament and other fun activities. Most importantly, you will make friends to last a lifetime!

    The opportunity to participate is open to all area high school juniors. LPEA will sponsor one student from each area high school to attend the 2017 CEEI Cooperative Youth Leadership Camp. This year's Leadership Camp will be held July 15 - July 20, 2017. This is an all expenses paid trip.
