Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA)

RYLA will happen this summer over the course of three different weeks. Two camps will be day camps where parents (or students) will need to drive to and from daily. One camp will be virtual.
 
6/21-6/25-face to face, day camp Lawrence, KS
6/28-7/2-VIRTUAL
7/12-7/16-face to face, day camp, Overland Park, KS (KU Edwards campus)
 
Both day camps can accept 30 students and will cost $250 while the virtual camp can accept 36 students and will cost $50.
 
There are several past participants of this program that stated their experience was life-changing and made them more aware of their capabilities. It is common to see a student become emotional when talking about their experience with RYLA. For many students, this is their first exposure to Rotary and what we, as Rotarians, can accomplish. The projects and exercises in this five-day camp are designed to get the students to think differently about certain situations and develop their own solutions with fellow students they may have not met before attending the camp. Many students worldwide, who have attended RYLA, have continued on to become members of an Interact, Rotaract, and eventually a Rotary club.
 

The University of Kansas in Lawrence will once again host District 5710's Rotary Youth Leadership Academy (RYLA).
