The North Platte Rotary Clubs invites all sophomores and juniors to apply to attend this year’s Rotary Youth Leadership Awards Camp.

Great Plains RYLA Camp will take place in Halsey on July 13-18.

Every year, the North Platte Noon Rotary Club and North Platte Sunrise Rotary Club partner to send six students from Lincoln County to attend Rotary’s RYLA Youth Leadership Camp. All expenses and transportation for the camp are covered by the clubs.

Great Plains RYLA is a co-ed five-day leadership camp designed to develop leadership skills through problem solving, communication and team building while learning about the value of service, the importance of community, and the role of Rotary locally and internationally. Participants will also develop self-confidence and a network of friends. RYLA students participate in team-building trust activities, participate in hand-on leadership development activities, hear from first-class speakers from throughout the state, and engage in fun activities like canoeing, tubing and fun ropes. 

Applications will be accepted through March 31, 2021 11:59p.m. through the online portal:

Participants must be committed to attending the full length of camp.

Please contact Alisha Forbes at for any questions regarding applications or the camp itself.
