Nominations are encouraged through Rotary clubs approaching local high schools.

RYPEN North   Ulverstone Friday May 19 – May 21st  2017

RYPEN North is Rotary’s residential leadership camp for northern Tasmanian Grade Ten students whose attendance costs have been sponsored by their local Rotary Clubs. The RYPEN weekend is typically for Grade Tens aged 15 or 16 who’ve already demonstrated some leadership in their personal, school or community lives.

Coordinated by the Rotary Club of Ulverstone and held each year from Friday evening until Sunday afternoon in late May at Camp Clayton near Turners Beach, the RYPEN North program is a busy, interesting and varied program of age-appropriate activities. Presented by a team led by an experienced high school teacher, it is designed to build a wide range of confidence, communication and team skills, group speaking practice and social networking in a warm, happy and supportive atmosphere. Comfortable accommodation, good food and a beautiful beachside setting are key elements of our RYPEN North weekend.

RYPEN participants leave us with lots of effective strategies to support their personal leadership goals in their school, community or future life, along with wonderful memories of their weekend and a great group of new friends from across the north of the state.
