Rotary Youth Leadership Awards, is a leadership training program that enhances your community's youth leaders' leadership and communication skills while breaking them out of their comfort zones and encouraging service above self.  RYLA gives students confidence to spread their ideas of impact to their community and world while becoming life-changers in the lives of those that they come in contact with.


RYLA is the Rotary District 6110 sponsored youth leadership training program. RYLA focuses on class leaders who are currently in their junior (11th grade) year of high school. In addition, if your club is hosting a student through youth exchange as long as the individual is attending high school (10-12th grades), he or she may attend RYLA camp with the permission and participation of the sponsoring club.


We accept students who have outstanding records and are looking for new ways to learn and grow in the areas of leadership, communication, diversity, vision, mission, teamwork, service, selflessness, and ROTARY.

RYLA for the Fall of 2024 takes place on October 17th-20th at Salvation Army Camp Heart O' Hills in Welling, OK (Just East of Tahlequah, OK)!   The 2024 camper application is located HERE.  The 2024 camp rate is $350 per camper, in addition HERE is a link to a list of FAQ's for students, parents, and Rotarians about camp.
