We’re once again inviting clubs to sponsor students to attend our District 6250 Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) Camp.  We are very excited about this year's program and the opportunity to mentor young professionals in our community.

The dates for this year's camp are May 17-19 at the Upham Woods Outdoor Learning Center in Wisconsin Dells. Plans are coming together for another transformational and fun weekend!

New this year - Applications from clubs and Registrations from students/parents will be completely electronic. No more paper forms (woohoo)!

For RYLA leadership to get everything we need, you’ll simply have to complete these 3 steps:

  1. Identify how many, and which students you’ll be sponsoring to send to RYLA (typically done with your local schools).
  2. Complete the Club Application. You’ll use this form to tell us how many students your club is sponsoring and provide their names.
  3. Ensure that students along with their parents/guardians complete the Student Registration form. Each student coming to RYLA will need to complete this form.
