For the Parents/Guardians of RYLA Campers:

On behalf of everyone involved with RYLA Camp 2020, I would like to thank you for allowing your child to participate in this program. Throughout the course of the camp, your child will be exposed to wonderful “hands-on” experiences which will build their teamwork and leadership skills. You should consider it an honor that your child has been selected to attend this camp.

 

The District 6910 RYLA committee has worked very hard to plan activities that will be challenging, educational, rewarding, and fun for our participants. Among these activities are a low ropes course at the Athens Y Camp (under the guidance of trained professionals), and whitewater rafting on the Chattooga River (accompanied by river guides). Please know that every effort has been made to ensure your child’s safety during these activities. Make certain you complete the Emergency Instructions, the Authorization and Consent to Treat a Minor (NOTE: a copy of your child’s insurance card is required), the Athens Y-Camp Release/Assumption of Risk/Hold Harmless, and the Southeastern Expeditions Rafting Waiver. The consent and waiver forms must be signed by you and your student. Your child will not be allowed to participate in the activities unless these forms are completed and returned.

Please be aware that most of the RYLA activities are physically challenging! If you do not want your child to participate in one or more of the activities, i.e hiking, the low ropes course, the white water rafting or swimming, then you MUST indicate this on your EMERGENCY INSTRUCTION FORM. If there is any activity that your child cannot participate in, then please make him/her aware that this is your decision and the counselors will abide by it. Although it is the sponsoring Rotary club’s responsibility to provide transportation to the camp, you may choose to do it yourself.

 

If you have any questions or concerns please email me at bobalman@yahoo.com or call/text at 478-538-4905. 

Thank you!

Bob Alman
