Each year in July North Central PPD, a member of the Nebraska Rural Electric Association (NREA) sponsors three to four students to attend the NREA Youth Energy Leadership Camp held at the State 4-H Camp in the Halsey National Forest. This camp has been held for over 25 years. This camp was organized by NREA with the intentions of educating young men and women grades 9, 10 and 11, about rural electrification and to show them the opportunities for future careers in rural electrification. In addition, those attending camp will have a chance to learn new leadership skills, grow socially and serve as an ambassador to NREA’s Rural Electric National Youth Tour in Washington D.C., make many new friends, and most importantly…HAVE A GREAT TIME!!
