RYPEN stands for Rotary Youth Program of ENrichment

RYPEN is a 2.5 day residential experience, where participants are involved in a variety of sessions, workshops and activities, which provide an opportunity for them to develop personally, challenge themselves, build friendships with like-minded people, and build life skills. It is not a coincidence that the when pronounced our program sounds like “ripen”.  In every way, this program is designed to RYPEN the lives of those who attend, and the lives of the friends and family with whom our participants interact, after RYPEN.

 Participants develop awareness in areas such as:

  • leadership
  • working in a team
  • communication
  • decision making
  • building relationships
  • contributing to community
   

 RYPEN also provides an opportunity for participants to:

  • build confidence and self esteem
  • increase self awareness
  • consider the impact of life choices
  • build trust
  • explore values

 
RYPEN is about having fun!

   
 Throughout the seminar, participants work together in small groups with paired youth leaders from the
 RYPEN 2018 Experience. 
 
Each group also has an adult mentor allocated to the group.
The role of the mentor is to coach the youth leader to lead the program.

The 2019 RYPEN camp will be held from 4pm Friday 13 September to 3.30pm Sunday 15 September 2019.
