RYLA is a premier youth leadership development program for people aged 19-29.
During a week long camp designed to promote proactivity, personal and professional development through a range of inspirational speakers, team building exercises and leadership training. The development of communication and presentation skills, problem solving, conflict resolution, self-confidence and self-esteem are key objectives of this program.
RYLA is one of those “once-in-a-lifetime” experiences which truly has a lasting impact on your life. The high intensity seminar is filled to the brim with Australia’s leading inspirational and motivational guest speakers, who give up their time purely based on the benefits they see every year for those attending. 
Our venue for RYLA Bornhoffen PCYC, operates under an approved COVIDSafe plan.  Our program for the camp will be tailored to ensure we meet all restrictions in place at the time of the camp.  Whilst the venue is in Queensland, we are accepting applications from both New South Wales and Queensland residents within our Rotary District on the basis that restriction levels at the time will allow all to attend.  Should circumstances require any changes to these plans then we will advise all attendees as soon as practicable.
