Youth Program of Enrichment


RYPEN stands for Rotary Youth Programme of Enrichment which through a weekend live in seminar for up to 45 participants, aims to create in young adults an awareness of their place in and responsibility towards, society. Participants are sponsored and paid for (at a cost of around $285 pp) by the many Rotary Clubs within District 9465 who see RYPEN as a great opportunity to demonstrate their commitment to youth in their community.   

Who Should Apply?

Teenagers between fourteen and seventeen years of age who have not yet experienced leadership positions, but who have the potential to benefit from such exposure.

What Does it Involve?

RYPEN is an intensive programme which includes developing and implementing problem solving skills. At the same time participants from different backgrounds are interacting with each other and improving their teamwork skills. Activities may include a low ropes course, a team building course, workshops, games and more done in an informal atmosphere, where questions and debate are encouraged.

Where is it Held?

The camp is held at the Baptist Churches of WA-Serpentine Camping Centre, 22 Transit Road, Jarradale WA.

 When is it Held?

Two camps a year are organized usually in May and October.  


A brochure and the application form for the Camp are available to download on this page.

Please note that as the District Committee must commit to payment to the campsite two weeks prior to the Camp it is generally unable to refund late withdrawals or ‘no shows’.  It is therefore important that clubs select applicants carefully and follow them up to ensure commitment.
