Summer to Remember

Wrec Sends Local Students to Youth Leadership Camps

Wells Rural Electric Cooperative loves supporting our local students and schools.

While providing safe, affordable, reliable electricity is what we do, making life better in the communities we serve is who we are. Literally—it’s in our mission statement.

We can think of few better ways to accomplish that than investing in the future. 1 of the highlights of our commitment to local students is taking groups of incoming seniors to summer leadership camps each July. Students hear inspirational messages from top-notch motivational speakers, challenge their limits, grow their leadership skills, and have tons of fun. Each summer, our students rave about their experiences.

Don’t miss out on this incredible experience! We’ll be taking students—at no cost—to the Michael F. Peterson Youth Challenge, July 8 through 12 in Ephraim, Utah, and the Idaho Youth Rally, July 8 through 13 in Caldwell, Idaho.

Visit the Camp page to apply. The deadline for applications is March 15.

“I would like to say how honored I was to be able to attend this leadership camp. I did not know anyone at first, but there were so many welcoming people that by the end of camp I had so many people I bonded with. I still communicate with most of them today. During this camp we had something new to do every day, and the food was amazing! Doing this camp made me realize that meeting new people happens very frequently and we just don’t realize it. Honestly, I was scared going into this camp, only because I was going in alone and didn’t know anyone. However, I am very grateful I get to return this year and be able to do it all again as a youth director, especially going into it with my friends from last year.” — Kadence Murphy, Wendover High School

“The Michael F. Peterson Youth Leadership Challenge was the most fun experience I have ever had. I got the opportunity to make tons of friends, develop leadership skills, and listen to some very inspirational speakers. We got to go on a ropes course, go swimming, participate in a talent show, and many more activities. I am so grateful for this experience as it has taught me the importance of teamwork, how to be a leader, and the value of taking opportunities that come my way. I would encourage anyone and everyone with the chance to go to take this opportunity. The food was also delicious.” — Jorie Wright, Wells High School
