What should I bring to RYLA?
See the list in the bar to the left.  Basically, you will be staying inside heated cabins, but you will want a sleeping bag or bedding. You will be both inside and outside, but we will not be outside much if the weather is bad.  Casual wear is appropriate. You will need at least one pair of closed toe shoes. The Rotary lunch is typically semi-formal/business casual, so you will want one set of set of clothes for that.  At camp, we will give a couple T-shirts to wear. Also, you will end up carrying everything yourself.
 
Can you accommodate food allergies or disabilities?
Yes, just let us know what you need. The camp is ADA compliant.
