What began as a dream nineteen years ago came to fruition today with the completion of the final section of the Rotary Trail. Spanning twenty-two kilometers, this trail is meant to not only be multi-use, but meant to be accessible to people of all walks of life. Today, Rotarians, sponsors, and community members gathered for the completion of this nearly two-decade-long project. Although at first a project of this size seemed like an impossible task, today proved that dedication and persistence can make dreams happen. 
 
Rotary Club of Prince Albert would like to thank the incredible sponsors of the trail for both monetary and in-kind donations, as well as the community for donating time and support. Thanks also goes out to everyone who attended the completion ceremony today to celebrate!

Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) Camp
- Sponsored by the Rotary Club of Prince Albert, Rotary International District 5550.
Strong leaders are made, not born. Leadership skills are learned, not inherited. Rotary Clubs around the world are dedicated to helping young people like you develop your leadership skills to the fullest. We believe that RYLA Camp will assist you in realizing your leadership potential and have a whole lot of fun along the way!
 
WHAT WILL I LEARN?
Knowledge + Action = Results.
RYLA camp is focused on leadership development.
Join others your age in a camp atmosphere to learn skills in self-management. Learn about yourself and others. Learn how to interact with your peers. As you approach graduation, come and learn how to make critical decisions that will affect the rest of your life. Learn how to apply the knowledge you have learned. Learn how to be a leader and a follower. Learn how to trust and be a team player.
 
WHAT ELSE SHOULD I KNOW?
RYLA camp is an all-expense paid camp.
Learning is interspersed with recreational activities, campfires and good food. The learning experience is set in Riding Mountain National Park on the shores of Clear Lake at Anglican Memorial Camp. It is extremely beautiful there. We will transport you there and back.
When you arrive you may not know anyone. By the time you leave you will have made friends that could last a lifetime. Camp RYLA proves you can have fun while learning and growing. It takes courage to push yourself to places that you have not been before. Test your limits. Break through barriers.
 
THERE ARE TWO CAMPS:
Basic Camp - July 29 to August 3, 2019 if you are 12, 13 or 14 
Senior Camp - August 5 to August 10, 2019 if you are 15, 16 or 17.

Adventures in Technology is a comprehensive, carefully planned four and one-half day event that allows Western Canadian Grade 11 and 12 students to explore advanced technology, research, development and applications. The experience enhances each participant's awareness and understanding of technology, the many ways it affects our lives, and the opportunities it holds for tomorrow.
 
Saskatoon has been a leader in applying various modes of technology for decades.  The University of Saskatoon has been the incubator and Innovation Place is a natural extension of this. The Rotary Clubs of Saskatoon jointly organize and host approximately 28 students from across Western Canada, including Manitoba and northern Ontario. The AIT program is held during the last week in April. The students are billeted with Rotarians.
 
During their visit, students tour an exciting array of some of Canada's finest corporations and research facilities such as the University of Saskatchewan, Areva Resources Ltd, Potash Corporation of Saskatchewan, and the Canadian Light Source. These organizations offer tours, provide hands-on opportunities and informative lectures. 
 
Students are also treated to the best in Saskatchewan hospitality. A varied social program promotes building friendships, goodwill and exercising leadership skills
 
This year’s event will be held from Sunday, April 28th to Friday, May 3rd, 2019. Students are asked to arrive on Sunday, April 28th (Welcome Reception & Ice-Breaker starts at 6:30pm).
