Rotary Youth Leadership Experience (RYLE)

Where: Camp Nakamun, located one hour North of Edmonton
Who: 60-100 High School students with little or no current Rotary affiliation

The Rotary Youth Leadership Experience (RYLE) brings High School aged students from across District 5370 to Camp Nakamun for a four day leadership developmental camp packed with workshops, speakers, and experiences that build confidence, communities, and empowerment. These students are nominated by Interact Clubs and High Schools as individuals who show strong potential for growth in the field of leadership and often have little or no previous experience with Rotary International.
The programming of the camp has three main focuses: interpersonal growth, communication, and community building and global citizenship. Students are encouraged to take part on a challenge-by-choice basis and ample opportunity is given for each participant to express their individuality and test their strengths.
One of the greatest outcomes of the program, however, is by far the relationships, communities, and trust that are built within the camp. Over a short, yet intense period the students develop strong trust with both the counsellors and other campers, where they feel comfortable sharing parts of themselves they often haven’t shared with anyone else in their lives. The bonds formed at RYLE have proven time and time again to form lasting supports and many of our alumni are still in contact today. The camp further acts as a gateway into the Rotary Community, providing trackways and opportunities to service-oriented individuals to become involved on a wider scale.
Our students enter RYLE as individuals primed for growth. They leave as leaders part of our Rotary family.
