RAYEC Camp, Aug 8 - 14, 2021
Planning is well underway for the 24th annual Rotary Alberta Youth Entrepreneurship Camp.  
RAYEC 2021 will be held August 8 to 14 at Eagles Nest Ranch.  RAYEC is a business camp for youth aged 13-15.

The camp would not be possible without the financial support of the clubs of Rotary District 5360.  Sponsoring a camper/youth leader for the week is $1000.00. 

All camp applications are processed centrally.  Clubs are not responsible for finding a youth, however, they can encourage youth in their areas to apply.
