RYPEN is the Rotary Programme of Enrichment, aimed at local 14-17 year old kids ready to 'step up' and diserve further development and guidance.

Each year our club, along with the Rotary Club of Timaru and ARA outdoor education students, runs a fun, residential weekend camp at Lindisfarne featuring inspiring, motivational speakers, awesome outdoor activities designed to build their self-worth in a team environment.

The programme provides crucial life skills to help teens cope in an increasingly competitive world and the pressure to perform academically and in future workplaces. It 
stretches them socially, culturally and academically.

Clubs usually contribute about 80 percent of the cost, with students meeting the remainder. Applications can be made via our club or the Rotary Club of Timaru.
