RYLA events are typically 3–10 days long and include presentations, activities, and workshops that cover a variety of topics, including:

RYLA Staff has the final decision on what is considered appropriate for all attire. Refusal to change will result in loss of privileges. Revealing or grunge attire will not be permitted.
Students will not be allowed to go to their cars during the conference. Cell phone / texting use will not be permitted during scheduled conference events. Use of cell phones / texting during conference hours will result in confiscation of cell phone until a later appropriate time as determined by the RYLA Staff. Intentional breaking of these rules will result in loss of privileges. Continual abuse is grounds for sending the student home at the parent / guardian’s expense.
