Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA Camp) is all about Rotarians working with youth in leadership development. It is an intensive training/experiential program for 180 high school students in their pivotal junior year, who are chosen for their proven or potential leadership abilities. Students participate in an all-expense paid camp held in Idyllwild Pines, California, for three days. The camp is run by RYLA Alumni and student attendance is sponsored by Rotary Clubs from throughout District 5320. Attendance is free for qualified high school Juniors. Students are joined by talented young people from communities throughout the district. RYLA provides a memorable opportunity to learn, grow, have fun, make new friends, and gain a new and improved focus.
