The Rotary Club’s motto is “Service Above Self,” and
Gilroy Rotarians are actively involved in humanitarian,
educational, and cultural programs that touch people's
lives both in the local community and throughout the world.
Camp RYLA is a summer youth leadership training camp for Bay Area students entering their senior year of high school. Each year the Gilroy Rotary Club selects local high school students who have shown great leadership potential and sponsors their week at Camp RYLA. They join other students from all over the Bay Area and enjoy fun camp activities while developing their leadership and communication skills. For many, Camp RYLA is a life-changing experience, and alumni often come back to “pay it forward” by serving as counselors and team leaders.
This year Camp RYLA will be at the end of June at the Mission Spring Camp in Scotts Valley. Students are selected by a Rotary Club committee.
