Mini Ryla

Posted: September 28 - 2017

The Rotary Clubs of Creston and Nelson, in partnership with School District No. 8 (Kootenay Lake) are hosting a 3-day leadership camp for 24 students from the 6 secondary schools in the school district and students who are taking alternative education in our area. The students must be between 14 and 18 years of age. This is the second annual Mini RYLA program. The program was first introduced last year on a pilot basis and was a resounding success.   

Through 15 different interactive sessions with a variety of skilled presenters the participants will:

  •     Explore short and long term goals
  •     Gain a deeper understanding of their personal strengths and values
  •     Develop and refine communication skills
  •     Learn more about:
    •       Transitioning from secondary school to post secondary education or the work place
    •       Expanding their global awareness
    •       Building capacity for Kindness/Compassion
    •       Developing Self Esteem/Self Awareness
    •       Critical thinking skills
    •       Plus, much more

The leadership Camp will be held at Crawford Bay School November 11, 2017 starting at 12:30 PM (MST) to November 13, 2017 ending at 3:30 PM (MST)

There is no financial cost for the participants.  There are only 24 spots available so it will be essential to register early.

Students can access a registration form to apply for the Camp from their school office.
