Rotary Youth Leadership Award camp announced

The Wabash Rotary Club is searching for candidates to attend its 27th annual Rotary Youth Leadership Award (RYLA) camp. Again this year it will be at Camp Tecumseh YMCA Outdoor Center, Brookston, Indiana. This year’s camp will be April 19-21.

Dana Brady, local committee chair, said that participants will be selected from students, in their sophomore or junior years in high school, which have exhibited leadership abilities in school, church, extracurricular, or community activities.

The Rotary club is now asking churches, high school principals, guidance counselors, youth organizations, and other sources for nominations.

Aimed at developing the leadership potential of young people, the camp will feature many challenging activities including workshops, speakers, discussions, sports, music and fun. Topics will focus on decision-making, critical thinking, communicating effectively, public service, contemporary problems, and career development. The participants will live, work, study, and play together in a democratic setting under the guidance of professional counselors and educators.

Anyone interested in obtaining further information should contact Dana Brady by calling or call (260) 563-1158 ex 1348 or email, or any other member of the Rotary Club.
