Wyndham students sponsored for leadership training

In March and October each year our Rotary club sponsors two Year 10-11 students on a weekend leadership camp at Camp Weekaway. They join 40 – 60 students from around Melbourne and Bendigo area for a weekend of fun and stepping out of their comfort zone. Called the Rotary Youth Program of Enrichment (RYPEN), young leaders challenge the students in teams through a series of crazy exercises. My experience is that each group of students arrive shy and nervous about the weekend but return home ecstatic at the experience. Students in the City of Wyndham can check out the camp at the Rotary District 9800 RYPEN website and contact our club if they are interested in attending. The camp is free to the students and Rotarians supply travel to and from the camp.
