History of Youth Tour

The idea came from President Lyndon B. Johnson who advocated for rural electrification and youth development. In 1957, when he was still a U.S. Senator, Johnson suggested “sending youngsters to the nation’s capital where they can actually see what the flag stands for and represents.”

This idea evolved into a nationwide effort to send youth on an organized, fun and educational trip in the 1960s. Now, over 50 years later, electric cooperatives from across the country send over 1,800 youth to the nation’s capital every summer.

About Youth Camp
