Every July, Twin Valley Electric Cooperative and the electric cooperatives of Colorado, Kansas, Oklahoma, and Wyoming send nearly 100 students to the Glen Eden Resort, located just north of Steamboat Springs, Colorado to participate in an educational and fun seminar. The Youth Leadership Camp offers a great opportunity for high school students to learn about a cooperative, tour a generation facility, learn about government and build on communication and leadership skills.
