The aim of RYPEN is to provide an enriching and challenging experience for Year 9 high school students. The weekend camp is a balance of social interaction, adventures and speakers to assist the students in developing life skills. RYPEN provides students with a wider experience than many have previously had. They interact with Rotarians and their peers from across the District and undertake challenging activities and adventures as well as being inspired and challenged by some wonderful speakers from many walks of life. A key component of the camp that allows participants to engage quickly and more deeply is that the camp is run by a team of hand picked and trained leaders, all of whom have attended a RYPEN camp in the past.
