RYLA - COVID-19 Update

Your RYLA team is evaluating weekly updates on the COVID-19 virus.  At this point in time, the event is still proceeding forward.
 
Actions to date which affect clubs:
  • The application paperwork and payment deadline has been moved from 4/1/20 to 4/17/20
  • No application late fees will apply this year
  • We are holding all applications and checks until a final determination to hold or not hold the camp is reached
  • In the event that RYLA is cancelled all funds will be returned to the club
  • Upham Woods is being very flexible - we will wait as long as possible to make the decision. 
 
What you can do to help:
  • Submit your applications and checks so we are ready to go if we get the green light to proceed
  • Review your forms carefully before forwarding to the District, with the tighter time frames it will be important for all information to be completed
Thank you,

What Is RYLA?

Established as a Rotary Structured Program in 1971, Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) is Rotary's leadership training program for young people.

The Rotary District 6250 RYLA program is a camp designed to build future leaders and Rotarians who exemplify the four way test.

  • Is it the Truth?
  • Is it fair to all concerned?
  • Will it build good will and better friendships?
  • Will it be beneficial to all concerned?

Check out the video from last year!
