Applications are NOW being accepted for ETREYS 2022!


URECC, along with eight other cooperatives in the northeast Texas area, participates in a character-strengthening program for sophomore and junior students.  


The East Texas Rural Electric Youth Seminar is an all-expense-paid week-long leadership and motivational camp that was developed to promote Cooperative philosophy, ideas, and values among young high school students.


This fun-filled week at “camp” features nationally-known personalities, professional athletes and community leaders as speakers. Students will make new friends, develop team working abilities and problem-solving skills, and build self-confidence and leadership through planned games and activities during the week. Students will also have the opportunity to apply and interview for scholarships that will be awarded during the week of camp.    


It is a positive and fun learning experience on the East Texas Baptist University campus in Marshall, usually held the last week of June. Upshur Rural selects 15 students to participate in the seminar, consisting of approximately 125 students in attendance from across North East Texas.

The submission dates for ETREYS applications has been extended!
Applications may be submitted through Monday, April 11th.
Students must be a sophomore or junior to apply.
