RYLA - Rotary District 6250

RYLA is going virtual! As much as we wish we could see you all at Camp Upham Woods this year, we're playing it safe as we make it through the pandemic.

Participants will attend sessions virtually over two days in May, 2021:

May 16th, 2:00-5:00pm
May 17th, 6:00-8:00pm

How to get your students registered for RYLA

  1. Fill out the “Club Registration Form” to tell us how many students you’re sending. (more details are in the attached Rotary Tool Kit for Student Selection document)
  2. Have all students along with their parents/guardians fill out the “Student Registration Form” (this link is only to be given to students that your club sponsors to go to RYLA, more details are given in the attached RYLA Registration Process document)
  3. After the club form is completed, the District 6250 office will send an invoice for payment.  The invoice will be sent to the Treasurer and cc'd to the coordinator on the Club Registration form.  Please send payment promptly once this invoice is received. Please make checks payable to Rotary District 6250.
  4. The District Office will reconcile student forms submitted to club registrations. We will contact the RYLA Club coordinator if there are any discrepancies.  
  5. The registration and payment deadline is April 15, 2021. 

What Is RYLA?

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?
