Pequot Lakes students Necole Lyons, Erin Bengston and Lindsey Young attended the 27th annual District 5580 Rotary Youth Leadership Awards Camp on the University of Minnesota-Crookston campus July 8-14.

Each student is awarded sponsorship by their local Rotary club. A total of 130 campers attended this year, sponsored by 55 Rotary International Clubs across District 5580 in Minnesota, North Dakota, Wisconsin and Ontario, Canada.

RYLA is a youth leadership camp that gives high school students hands-on learning experiences and sessions to build upon their own leadership skills. The curriculum is designed to expand, improve and refine the participants' leadership skills and send each camper home with the confidence and tools to lead within their own community.

The Camp RYLA staff is composed of both former campers and District 5580 Rotarians who dedicate a week of their summer to ensure campers have a positive and fulfilling learning experience. More information about Camp RYLA can be found at www.district5580ryla.org.
