Why Camp RYLA?
Camp RYLA provides you with an opportunity to exchange ideas, opinions, and believs with other students, in a relaxed, retreat style setting.  You'll be encouraged to tear down the walls by trying new things and exploring new roles.  You'll develop new friendships and become a more effective role model, team player, and leader.  Camp capacity is limited to 45 girls and 45 boys.
What will I be doing?
You will start each morning with aerobic exercises to get your minds and bodies going.  The days are non-stop with team building activities, river rafting, ropes courses, the RYLA Olympics, & community service projects.  Evenings highlight social activities and each day ends with a daily wrap-up and team bonding with brother & sister cabins.
