Make a Difference for a Young Person!
RYPEN is only possible because Rotary Clubs in District 5360 sponsor participants to cover the program cost of $600. This includes all meals, accommodation, and program materials. The only out of pocket money required is anything purchased at the canteen. We are grateful to the many clubs that sponsor participants year after year. If your club is interested in helping a young person develop leadership skills, please read below or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Your Club's Contribution
Sponsor on participant for $600, which includes all meals, accommodation, and program materials.
Identify camp participants. You can register specify participants or simply sponsor a spot for someone who was unable to directly connect with a sponsoring Rotary Club in their community.
If you identify participants, you also provide transportation to and from the RYPEN camp. This is your chance to connect directly. Drop-off at the camp is no later than 3:30pm Friday, September 16, 2022 and pick-up time is Monday, September 19, 2022, 11:00 am. Typically there is a bus to and from Calgary (at an extra fee of $85 per participant).
Deadlines: Please confirm your commitments by June 30. This camp does fill up quickly - do not delay. We HIGHLY recommend that Clubs begin their search for students NOW! Consider connecting with local schools or Interact Clubs. If need be, you can confirm how many students you have identified until August. Once a participant has been identified, waiver forms must be completed by September. This is the last step to complete registration.
Payment: We encourage clubs to make payments before the end of the school and Rotary year, i.e. June 30.

Connect and Engage
Create opportunities for RYPEN participants to stay connected with Rotary, for example through one of the many other youth programs.
Ask the participants you have sponsored to come to your club and talk about their RYPEN experience as soon as possible after the camp.
Send us an email and we'll be happy to present to your Club if you want your Club members to learn more about RYPEN.
