“We would like to thank the Rotary Club of Squamish for giving us the amazing opportunity to attend RYLA Lakelse. It was such a great experience where we learned to solve problems, build leadership skills, and made new friendships. We will never forget the people, the experiences and it is something we will carry with us forever.”
“It’s amazing to see the wonderful changes in these young people, the changes that happen in only three days and three nights together. My fellow Rotarians – it is truly amazing and hard to put into words. As I watch the students leave with their parents, I am thankful to be part of the Rotary family. I am thankful that their child is no longer shy, their quiet child is now sharing with others and has grown in a positive way.”
