Camp RYLA is a youth program of Rotary International that teaches leadership, character development, free enterprise and patriotism. Dates and location of this year’s co-ed camp is provided in the information below. Camp RYLA provides a unique opportunity for the Rotary Clubs of District 5730 to combine their efforts in a district-wide youth project to make the youth in our communities aware of the great opportunities for service and accomplishment.

The young people, both boys and girls, participating in this experience are carefully selected for their leadership qualities, scholarship and excellent moral standards. Campers learn the blessings and responsibilities of being a citizen of a free society. They gain an appreciation for how important the Object of Rotary and the Rotary 4-Way Test are in establishing moral and ethical values and the ideals of service above self. RYLA includes programs on topics designed to teach those things seen as vital ingredients in successful leaders such as fundamentals of leadership, problem solving and conflict management, building self-confidence and self-esteem, elements of community and global citizenship, sportsmanship, competition, physical fitness, spirituality and character.

By working with today's leaders, Camp RYLA is trying to help guarantee a bright future for tomorrow's generation. The leadership training sessions at Camp RYLA provide informal talks by selected speakers followed by discussion groups. Camp RYLA looks to remove the "generation gap" between adult and youth leaders and to foster understanding and goodwill for those who participate through its rap sessions and recreational activities in a beautiful setting.
