RYLE (Rotary Youth Leadership Experience) is an annual conference hosted by the RYLE Committee and sponsored by the Rotary Clubs of District 5370. This experience is intended for high school students (grades 9 to 12) who would like to gain or strengthen their leadership skills and learn how to be active citizens who strive to make a positive impact in the world. Due to the global pandemic, this year's conference will not be an in-person camp, but the committee aims to provide the same transformational experience.
 
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 and part of our Rotary family.
