  • Consistent with Rotary as an organization that encourages and uses vaccines, we suggest all participants involved in RYLA camps get vaccinated against the COVID-19 virus. D5495 will not require vaccination or maintain proof of any volunteers’ or participants’ vaccination status.
  • Consistent with the CDC and the Arizona Department of Education, we encourage testing for the COVID-19 virus in order to prevent the spread. There will not be a requirement to test for the virus prior to attending RYLA camp. 
  • Consistent with the CDC and AZED, we reserve the right to quarantine anyone who does test positive or contracts COVID-19 at the RYLA camp. If someone is known to have the virus prior to the camp starting they will not be allowed to participate— both volunteers and participants.
  • This policy is subject to change depending on the health requirements, guidelines, and suggestions of the CDC or AZED. 

This camp aims to create an inclusive, understanding and welcoming community, fostering goodwill and peace, and realizing a world that achieves fundamental fairness and equality for LGBT+ people.
