Rotary Youth Program of Enrichment (RYPEN)

RYPEN stands for Rotary Youth Program of Enrichment

RYPEN is a 2.5 day residential experience, where participants are involved in a variety of sessions, workshops and activities, which provide an opportunity for them to develop personally, challenge themselves, build friendships with like-minded people, and build life skills.

Participants develop awareness in areas such as:

  • leadership
  • working in a team
  • communication
  • decision making
  • building relationships
  • contributing to community

RYPEN also provides an opportunity for participants to:

  • build confidence, and self esteem
  • increase self awareness
  • consider the impact of life choices
  • build trust
  • explore values

RYPEN is about having fun

Throughout the seminar, participants work together in small groups with paired youth leaders from the RYPEN 2016 Experience.  Each group also has an adult mentor allocated to the group.

The 2017 RYPEN camp will be held from 4:00 pm Friday 15 September to 3:30 pm Sunday 17 September 2017. Detailed below is the Application form for the program.
