Whitehall, Buxton



The next RYLA weekend course at Whitehall, Buxton will be held from Friday, 11th to Sunday, 13th May 2018.     The cost of the course is £175 per student.   Attendance at the Whitehall Centre RYLA is available to students who at the time of the course are in years 8, 9 or 10.  (14 to 16 years.)

Rotary Clubs are responsible for interviewing all potential candidates that they wish to sponsor and for payment of the appropriate fee.
