RYLA was a hidden gem of a programme and one of the greatest experiences I’ve been on. I didn’t know RYLA existed until I heard about it through work and the secrecy surrounding it didn’t help when I tried to look into exactly what I was signing up for. I went in not knowing what to expect and came out amazed and grateful for the rewarding opportunity and the new friendships I had made.
What you experience on RYLA is a well-run, highly motivating and inspirational week of leadership development, amazing speakers and comradery with your fellow Rylarians. At times challenging but that was all part of the fun and development.
If you get the chance to go, take it – it’s well worth it and you won’t regret it! The food is also some of the best “camp food” you will ever have
