Preparing for the next RYLA…

Thank you for your support! The next RYLA Northwest program will be held June 6-9, 2024 at YMCA Camp Colman (20016 Bay Rd SW, Longbranch, WA 98351). The cost will be distributed once voted on by the committee.

Please contact us if you would like a RYLA Northwest Committee member to deliver a program at a Rotary Club meeting. Registration will open in January 2024. We will hold online information sessions for Rotarians during the period February – April 2024.

The Registration Process:

First, Clubs reserve spaces in DACdb and may pay for students via online payment processing.

  • There is no limitation on the number of students a Club may send, but reservations will be accepted on a first-come-first serve basis.
  • We encourage you to review your student selection process, in order to identify those students who would most benefit from attending the RYLA program.

Second, select your students. Students must be in grades 10 & 11 (age 16 & 17). Students cannot be 18 years or older on the first day of the program.  To support Clubs in their recruitment efforts, we’ve created a flyer, family guide, and tentative conference schedule. These can be provided to schools and families (1) via link or (2) printed and provided in physical form.

Third, student selection and registration will be completed in DACdb. You will have the ability to use our centralized application process and select students (and back-ups) within the system.

  • April 15, 2024: All student online application must be submitted or they WILL NOT be attending and we will fill their spot. (Rotarians to check in with their students and make sure they have completed their application.)
  • There will be no refunds so please stay in touch with your candidates and get back-up students in case you need them.

If you have questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to the committee members.
