RYLA Non-Discrimination Policy

RYLA is committed to providing all students with a safe and supportive environment free from discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion (creed), gender, gender expression, age, national origin (ancestry), disability, or sexual orientation in any of its activities or operations.


RYLA is an intense and incredibly challenging leadership program, sponsored by Rotary District 7120 and has been designed to engender passion, resilience, determination, mental toughness, gratitude and compassion. In addition, the program will instill in the participants the value of Service above Self, a core Rotary belief.

You will also have the opportunity to participate in a character building program which focus on leadership, effective communication, trust and cooperation. Personal commitments and shared insights are the goal and you will gain an increased sense of confidence in yourselves and in your team.

If you are selected to participate, you will have the opportunity to exchange ideas about current issues and discuss leadership and personal development with knowledgeable local and regional leaders including many District Rotarians.

The Next RYLA Camp will be held from June 26 -June 30, 2022 at FLCC Canadaigua Campus
