RYPEN holds weekend camps in leadership for Grade 10 students. It is an Australian designed project for young people aged 14 to 17.
Camps are held in March in the South and May in the North of Tasmania.

It’s aim is to communicate to young people a series of ideas, problems and social experiences which will assist them in forming their own values and moral standards and broaden their horizons culturally, socially and academically.
