What is expected of a delegate?

You will be expected to:

How much does RYLA cost?

NOTHING! Local Rotary Clubs sponsor each delegate. The cost for the full weekend's program, including accommodation and catering, is sponsored by the local Rotary Clubs. There is no need to bring money with you for the weekend.  There is nowhere to spend it.

How can I apply?

Complete directions are included on the Delegates page.

What are the accomodations like?

Our RYLA events are held at Camp Ponderosa in Heber, Arizona in March or April. The rooms are in various buildings with shared bath facilities and sleeping rooms. Girls and boys are in separate facilities.

What to pack for the weekend?

RYLA is an activity weekend, and consequently designer clothes and jewelry should be left at home.
You will need to prepare for both indoor and outdoor activities (including possible snow conditions), and the suggested RYLA guidelines will be helpful when deciding what to pack for the weekend.
The weather can vary greatly throughout the day, so bringing clothes that can be layered is recommended.
