RYPEN South Fall Camp, Sep 21-24, SABC
RYPEN, September 21-24, 2017
The Rotary Youth Program of Enrichment or RYPEN is a Rotary sponsored District Youth Service program. Students, from 13 - 17 years of age, from across District 5360 attend a weekend long camp designed at developing their potential through a mixture of lecture style sessions and adventure-based learning.
Its aim is to communicate to young people a series of ideas, problems and social experiences which will assist them in forming their own values and moral standards.  A program of thought-provoking speakers, social situations, and personal challenges is offered. 
We suggest that your school or youth clubs are contacted prior to the end of this school year in order to meet the early September registration deadlines.
