Also bring some cash, small notes if possible (a ‘shop run’ is conducted every day for any essentials eg. Toothbrush, chocolate). You will also need to bring two towels, a sleeping bag and pillow.
Please also ensure that you have suitable clothing for the RYLA Presentation Dinner on the last night of the seminar. The dress code for this is semi-formal – a dress or pants and top for girls and shirts and pants for guys, no denim or sneakers please. Folders, pens etc will be provided so you don’t need to bring any stationery.
NOTE For anyone that has musical or other talents, we also encourage you to bring along any instruments, music, equipment or props to contribute to our Concert.
Everyone who attends RYLA does so because someone sees leadership potential in them. Sometimes people attend because they have heard about the program from a past participant and want to personally grow and develop. Lots of young people have done RYLA over the years varying in qualifications, interests and backgrounds. RYLA is beneficial for any young person who wants to learn more about themselves and others and is prepared to contribute their ideas and life experiences at the seminar.
