Rotary Youth Program of Enrichment
RYPEN (Rotary Youth Program of Enrichment) is a fun-filled weekend camp for young people aged 14 to 16 years who have shown qualities of decency, courage, persistence and sincerity in everyday life.

RYPEN allows teenagers to broaden their cultural, social and academic horizons, it offers experiences that will assist them forming their own values and moral standards through sharing ideas and problem solving, individually and working in teams.


RYPEN aims to:
• Increased motivation and improved life skills
• Improve self esteem and gain pride
• Help understand how to set and achieve goals
• Give confidence to overcome failure and take control of their future 


RYPEN provides the common bond of learning, co-operation and friendship to develop trust and self esteem amongst the individuals and broaden each participant’s horizons culturally, socially and academically, providing the inner foundations for a strong future.


RYPEN is held each year in Sydney.  It is all paid for by Rotary, someone from Rotary takes you there and brings you home at the end.
