Rotary Youth Programme of Enrichment (RYPEN)
The Rotary Youth Program of Enrichment (RYPEN) is a Youth Leadership over a weekend long camp for Year 11 and Year 13 students, designed at developing young people’s potential through a mixture of lecture style sessions and adventure-based learning.
The weekend will be run by young Rotaractors and past RYLA awardees sharing their experiences, hopes and ideals with participants with keynote speaker invited on Saturday evening.
RYPEN is designed for students who are seen as the upcoming leaders in your school, not those students who are already leading and achieving amazing things or those at the bottom end, but those students who just need a bit of a push and a confidence boost to start achieving at their full potential.
RYPEN has as its principal aim, to communicate to young people taking part in the program a series of ideas, problems and social experiences which will assist them in forming their own values and moral standards and allow them to broaden their horizons culturally, socially and academically.
RYPEN weekend is designed to promote teamwork and participation, friendship and social interaction; integrity, respect for other people and their cultures, accountability, empowerment and leadership.
Due to the impact of the Covid-19 (Corona) virus the 2020 RYPEN camp has been cancelled for the safety of the participants and volunteers.  Thank you to everyone who has so generously given their time and support.  Work is now commencing on the 2021 Camp
