RYLA - Rotary District 6250

RYLA is back to being LIVE! We’re so excited to see everyone back at Camp Upham Woods this year, and we're taking all the precautions to make RYLA a safe and fun experience!

May 12-14, 2023

How to get your students registered for RYLA - will be updated closer to the event

  1. Fill out the “Club Registration Form” on page 4 of the Student Packet 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” on page 5 of the Student Packet.
  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, 2022. 

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?
