It's not too late to be a part of RYLA 12' !
*RYLA* is Rotary's truly amazing & life changing leadership training program
in the form of a fun, adventure filled, 3 day, weekend leadership camping
trip! This year, it will be in Blue Jay, near Lake Arrowhead, on April
27-29th (Fri-Sun). Focusing on the "4 C's" ( Communication, Cooperation,
Creativity, Compassion ), RYLA transforms participants by breaking them out
of their shells & comfort zones, through dynamic team building & leadership
activities with 30+Interact Clubs in Rotary District 5280, RYLA Olympics,
talent show, & more ! Former RYLArians are encouraged to come back to share
their experiences with others by becoming a RYLA camp counselor. RYLA is for
aged 14-30 ( aimed at Interact/ high school) , however, after attending RYLA
once, those who want to participate again are asked to return as camp
To be a RYLA counselor, you must be able to attend 5 mandatory planning
sessions,( transportation provided) where we teach counselors everything
they need to know from the games to facilitating them, to ensure everyone
has the best of times!
