State Leadership Camp

State Leadership Camp provides the opportunity for Senior Youth (those who have completed the seventh grade, through the summer following senior year in high school) to attend the week-long State Leadership Camp at Storm Mountain Center just outside Rapid City. At this camp, youth organize and operate five cooperative businesses. They also learn about the Farmers Union, other cooperative businesses, participate in leadership workshops, listen to guest speakers and participate in talent night. A tour of the Black Hills, hiking, volleyball, basketball and fun cooperative games complete the camp experience and leave campers with lasting memories and many new friends.
