RYLA Camp director Bob Usry explained the camp experience and demonstrated one of the subjects taught at RYLA - how to introduce a speaker.  The District 5770 week long camp is for high school students between their junior and senior years.  It is designed to develop qualities of leadership, good citizenship, and personal development by providing a quality training experience to student campers.  District Rotary clubs select and sponsor campers from their communities. 

Bob, Ellen, and other dedicated Rotarians organized and have grown RYLA for 18 years.  This year had 55 campers and over one thousand students have attended the camp since 1993.
