Our District 5890 RYLA Camp will be February 10-12, 2017, and the $225 fee is paid by the sponsoring Rotary Club, not the student, parents, or Interact club.
RYLA Campers gain an appreciation for how important the Object of Rotary and the Rotary 4-Way Test are in establishing moral and ethical values and the ideals of Service Above Self. RYLA includes programs on topics designed to teach those things seen as vital ingredients in successful leaders such as fundamentals of leadership, problem solving and conflict management, building self-confidence and self-esteem, elements of community and global citizenship, sportsmanship, competition, physical fitness, spirituality and character.
By working with today's leaders, Camp RYLA is trying to help guarantee a bright future for today's and tomorrow's generations. The sessions at Camp RYLA provide informal talks by selected speakers followed by discussion groups. Camp RYLA looks to remove the "generation gap" between adult and youth leaders and to foster understanding and goodwill for those who participate through its rap sessions and recreational activities in a beautiful setting. RYLA Scholars are selected through a 200 word essay as part of the application process.
RYLA Scholars are recognized by the District Governor at completion of the program during the presentation of "Certificate of Attendance" ceremony.
The following are Rotary objectives for RYLA:
* To further demonstrate Rotary’s respect and concern for youth.
