How Does RYPEN Work?
This camp is creating opportunities for youth to learn through experience. In stable, small groups, participants have "fun with a purpose". They get to collaborate, reflect, make decisions together, break through barriers, resolve conflict, and get past what is holding them back. Previous RYPEN participants are paired with groups which allows them to develop strong relationships. Everyone gets to make their own decisions and is invited to participate. The Camp Facilitator who MC's the whole camp is a professional with lots of experience with youth work.
