The Pre – trip for Medicon 2018 Greece will be hosted in Kosisland, in the Dodecanese, not far from Rhodes. After an initiative of Rotary District 2470, a RYLA will be hosted in Kos
by the local Rotary Club, with the assistance of RC Kifissia-Politeia in Athens and several Rotarians and Rotaractors of the district.
Kos is a beautiful island, and a favorite location of many visitors every year! It is the birthplace of famous Hippocrates, one of the founders of Medicine as a science, and the location of the Asklepieion, one of the oldest and largest healing centers of antiquity. The castle of the Knights of Rhodes and the old town that surrounds it are the focal point of the capital.
Pre – Medicon will begin on Monday the 23d of April, with most of the day devoted to arrivals. Tuesday will be devoted to RYLA, and during most of Wednesday you will have the chance to tour the island and its sights. RYLA nights are legendary and you will have a great time with your RYLA mates!
Accommodation will be provided in a resort hotel on one of the largest and more impressive beaches of the island, and right next to the Alyki salt flats, a protected natural area and a favorite hotspot of countless flamingoes!
The RYLA will strive to expand and establish leadership and communication skills. A must for any rotaractor, RYLAs are one of the most memorable experiences Rotary has to offer to its youth branch.
Sponsored by Kos Rotary Club, RC Kifissia Politeia and 2470 Rotary District, Pre Medicon has a low participation fee, which includes accommodation for three nights, meals (at least breakfast and one other meal per day), and the transfer to Rhodes by ferry on Thursday evening, right when Medicon proper will be getting into high gear!
