NOTE: The 2023 Camp RYLA will be held June 19-June 23, 2023 at Goddard Youth Camp, Sulphur, OK.


All RYLA programs encourage youth leaders and provide them with improved techniques of leadership.  Their enthusiasm and technique are brought back to the community from which the campers were sponsored, thus impacting the young people being influenced by these youthful leaders.

RYLA introduces a large number of young people and their families to the Rotary ideals of service each year.  It helps bridge the communication gap between the generations and helps improve relationships among youth groups, families and the community.


The objectives of a Rotary Youth Leadership Awards program are:
  • To further demonstrate Rotary‚Äôs respect and concerns for youth.
  • To encourage and assist selected youth leaders and potential leaders in methods of responsible and effective voluntary youth leadership by providing   them with training experience.
  • To encourage continued and stronger leadership of youth by youth.
  • To publicly recognize the high qualities of many young people who are providing service to their communities as youth leaders.
