Rotary Youth Program of Enrichment (RYPEN)

Rotary offers two RYPEN Camps at two different venues.  We now have the best of both worlds – a camp at the Narrabeen Sydney Academy of Sport & Recreation in summer, and a camp in the beautiful Blue Gum Lodge in Springwood in winter.
During an intensive residential weekend, young people aged approximately 14 to 16 years will develop increased motivation, improved life skills, better self-image, pride in themselves and an understanding of setting and achieving goals.  At the same time, participants are interacting with peers from different backgrounds, and different parts of our district, improving their teamwork skills and having fun!!  All this done in an informal atmosphere, where questions and debates are encouraged.
