In October of each year, an information brochure and registration form are emailed to Club Presidents and club Secretaries of all Rotary Clubs in Canada (as per the Rotary International Directory of that year). In addition, registration forms for Sponsoring Clubs are available on this website. 
Responsibility of the Rotary Club of Ottawa:
  • The Rotary Club of Ottawa is responsible for any costs incurred for accommodation, meals and transport of the participants during the program in the National Capital area. 
  • Host families will be provided in the national capital area beginning on the Saturday and until Wednesday of the program. The host family will provide bed and breakfast and ensure that the student is transported to and from the program daily.  There will always be two or more participants placed with each Host Family.
  • The names, addresses and phone numbers of the host family will be supplied directly to the student prior to departure to Ottawa.
Choosing the Participants:
  • Sponsorship of participants in this program is limited to Canadian Rotary Clubs, and a club may sponsor only one student between the ages of 16 and 18. The maximum number of students accepted into the program is 200, and we reserve the right to limit the number of applications from any region in Canada in the interests of maintaining a reasonable geographical balance.
  • the Rotary Adventure Program is recognized in the Nation's Capital for the quality and enthusiasm of the students who participate. This is as a direct result of the selection process utilized by the sponsoring Rotary Clubs. We encourage all participating Clubs to continue to give special attention to the selection of their representatives. Strong candidates contribute to the overall experience and everyone involved.
