This year, due to Covid-19, RYLA 2021 will be held on-line from March 10-14th, 2021. This on-line eRYLA program has received great reviews from campers and counselors when first presented by Leader NU in Oklahoma.
This on-line eRYLA leadership camp is for high school sophomores & juniors. Activities have been modified from in-person Camp RYLA activities to work within the virtual camp environment. The camp format will be on-line. It will be fun and challenging with hands-on team learning experiences.
eRYLA virtual camp will be delivered through Zoom and Leader NU’s unique leadership website with multiple gathering rooms for different activities. Each participant receives a personal designed Camp Crate with each participant’s activity guide, supplies, t-shirt and even snacks! A camper will participate in more than 23 hours of team leadership training as they focus on skill development of communication, critical thinking, problem solving, and team decision making all through experiential learning over the internet.
 eRYLA testimonies include:
  • “Technology has changed so much and anything can be possible, we have come a long way from when you were a kid and went to the camp in person.”
  • "At first, I was a little nervous in meeting my team but as the week progressed we became like a family. I can't wait to meet them all in person”
  • "The mixed teams were a great way to get to know new people and work with new people! I loved getting to know everyone and it helped me find out my strengths! “
  • "I really liked that part too. It helped me get to know the other campers and counselors. It helped me get out of my comfort zone and talk to people. “
  • “You are dead wrong. This camp was pulled off with the highest degree of perfection and skill. The people make the camp, not the camp make the people “
  • "I did a eRYLA this summer and it help me a lot with my leadership skills and my confidence and I just would recommend it to anyone who needs a family or needs leadership skills."
