Camp Enterprise is a 3-day annual workshop/seminar event for high school students at the University of Waterloo during the first week of May. The Chair of our club’s committee works with the District Committee to assist with event coordination. Our club usually selects 6 or 7 Guelph-area students who would like to learn about starting and operating a business. The Club Committee advertises, interviews and selects the students, and arranges for their transportation to and from Waterloo.
 
RYLA (Rotary Youth Leadership Award) is a 4-to-5-day annual leadership workshop program offered by the District for 18-to-25-year-olds. The Club Committee works with the District Committee to select suitable candidates from the community to attend the program. Our club usually selects 1 or 2 local candidates, based on budget, who would like to learn  more about leadership development. The Club Committee advertises, interviews and selects the candidates, and arranges for their transportation to and from the program’s venue.
