Hosted by Rotary Districts 5630 & 5610

Applications will be accepted beginning February 1 through March 31, 2023, at 11:59 PM.

Rotary District 5630 has hosted Great Plains RYLA for more than 1,200 students since 1990. Using the Nebraska State 4-H campground facilities near Halsey in the scenic Nebraska Sandhills, RYLA has trained young leaders through activities, workshops, and a variety of presentations by speakers in business, government, and education.  The camp is a five-day experience full of indoor and outdoor activities that emphasize teamwork and decision-making.

In addition, RYLA focuses on service and Rotary’s role in building stronger communities by emphasizing both local and global citizenship.

Previous RYLArians serve as junior counselors and Rotarian men and women serve as senior counselors.   

RYLA stresses the fundamentals and ethics of good leadership, problem-solving, team building, and the importance of positive self-confidence and self-esteem. To advance leadership skills, one must put themselves in situations that will methodically train one to be a better leader.

Through RYLA, specific programs and activities have been carefully chosen to do just that. In addition to the leadership activities, there are lots of fun activities and social events. Are these goals you would like to achieve for yourself? If so, apply to participate in RYLA and join the many students from across Nebraska who have already benefited as young leaders.
