RYLA will be held April 10-12, 2015 at Camp Kern
Each spring, local Rotary Clubs partner with local school districts to select one or more High School sophomores and juniors (Award Winners) to attend a leadership development program known as RYLA, which stands for Rotary Youth Leadership Awards.
This camp is a terrific 48 hour Leadership training event for your Award Winners. In 2014, the program is scheduled from April 10-12, 2015.
The location is Camp Kern YMCA Leadership & Conference Center in Oregonia OH.
This Camp is part of Rotary’s New Generations initiative to engage Rotarians in the lives of developing youth. The Leadership Camp will feature several outdoor challenges, critical thinking exercises, and motivational speakers. Students will need to come prepared for physical activity and be dressed appropriately (April weather can be challenging). They are also required to attend the ENTIRE camp. Please note: 100% of the cost of the camp is covered by your sponsoring Rotary Club.
It is a special honor and opportunity for students who receive this RYLA award. We want to to make the most of this opportunity, for an extremely low cost to your club. Use it to promote your club! Use it to engage club memebrs in working with youth!
We have 52 Rotary Clubs within our District 6670 in southwest Ohio, so this program pulls a cross section of students from many school districts. Last year, over 50 Ohio High Schools were represented.
We will only accept 100 students for this program which is an honor and privilege to be selected.
Carol Hughes of the Rotary Club of Springboro is the RYLA chair.
