Here is a picture of the 4 RYPEN attendees our club sponsored this weekend.
The camp was held the weekend, 14-18 May, 2015, at Jasper Palisades Education Centre in Jasper.
 
RYPEN (Rotary Youth Program of Enrichment) is sponsored by Rotary International District 5370.  
It’s a five-day camp created for youth in Grades 10 – 12 who are in search of a positive identity. 
 
They are not normally recognized for their academic performance, and are not known for their disruptive behaviour.  
This intensive five-day program of self-discovery, through seminars, speakers and physical activities, focused on helping young people develop their self-confidence, self-motivation and goal setting skills. 
 
Participants will be provided with the tools and practice to take what they learn at camp and apply it to situations that relate to real life. 
The objective is to influence growth to bring about happy, productive young people who are positive role models to their peers in their community.

21.     The three things pregnant women dream most of during their first trimester are frogs, worms and potted plants. Scientists have no idea why this is so, but attribute it to the growing imbalance of hormones in the body during pregnancy.

22.     The life span of a human hair is 3 to 7 years on average. Every day the average person loses 60-100 strands of hair. But don't worry, you must lose over 50% of your scalp hairs before it is apparent to anyone.

23.     The human brain cell can hold 5 times as much information as an encyclopedia. Your brain uses 20% of the oxygen that enters your bloodstream, and is itself made up of 80% water. Though it interprets pain signals from the rest of the body, the brain itself cannot feel pain.

24.     The tooth is the only part of the human body that can't repair itself.

25.     Your eyes are always the same size from birth but your nose and ears never stop growing.

>>> PLEASE LOOK AT THIS ADVERTISING OPPORTUNITY <<<

With the number of members in this club either owning or operating a business, we are getting a very poor interest in this nice little generator of funds for the club.
Are the rates too steep? I don't think so, but if you do, please let us know.
If you have any bright ideas on how to promote this little initiative, please speak up.
