Welcome to Rotary
On July 3, we welcomed 11 youths from around the world to Sioux Lookout for the 2024 District 5550 International Youth Camp.
The group will go on their 7-day wilderness canoe trip starting on Sunday. Enjoy.

Salvation Army Sioux Lookout's services are valuable and necessary in our community. When we think of all the people the Salvation Army Sioux Lookout has helped already and the vast number of people still in need, we feel deeply grateful for Salvation Army Sioux Lookout's vision and strongly compelled to help support the good cause.
We hope the $2,500 donation will assist in continuing your services.
The funds are coming from the Rotary Radio Bingo.

The Sioux Lookout Bombers Jr.A team held their second annual Hockey Fights Cancer game at the Hangar on Saturday night. The real winner was local Cancer care as the Bombers and the Sioux Rotary Club of Sioux Lookout teamed up to donate $5000 to the Sioux Lookout Meno Ya Win Health Centre Foundation. 369 fans came out to support the team and this very worthy cause.
Rotary Youth Exchange builds peace one young person at a time.
Students learn a new language, discover another culture, and truly become global citizens. Exchanges for students ages 15-19 are sponsored by Rotary clubs in more than 100 countries.
What are the benefits?
  • Exchange students unlock their true potential to:
  • Develop lifelong leadership skills
  • Learn a new language and culture
  • Build lasting friendships with young people from around the world
  • Become a global citizen
How long do exchanges last?
Long-term exchanges last a full academic year, and students attend local schools and live with multiple host families.
What are the costs?
Room and board are provided by the host families in the host country, as well as any school fees. Each program varies, but students are usually responsible for:
  • Round-trip airfare
  • Travel Insurance
  • Travel documents (such as passports and visas)
  • Spending money and any additional travel or tours

The family of an outgoing student shall host an incoming Rotary Youth Exchange student and will be responsible for room and board for an incoming student.

How can I apply?
Candidates are ages 15-19 and are leaders in their schools and communities. Contact the Rotary Club of Sioux Lookout to see what exchange opportunities are available and what the application process involves.

Thank you to all who supported Rotary's efforts to raise money for local projects.

We also thank our sponsors for supporting the "End of Winter" event


On November 30 the Sioux Lookout Bombers, in cooperation with the Rotary Club of Sioux Lookout, hosted their first annual Mental Health Awareness night, an initiative which was spearheaded by several Bombers players, including #26 Aiden Parker.
The Bombers shared that, “Between the auction of our special game worn jerseys, sale of wristbands, the 50/50 draw (conducted by the Rotary Club) and other donations, you raised $2840 in support of mental health, $1500 of which (is) going directly to local mental health programs, and the remainder to the national Movember campaign.”
On Jan. 7, during the first period intermission of the Bombers’ game against the visiting Fort Frances Lakers, representatives from the Bombers and Rotary Club of Sioux Lookout presented a cheque for $1500 to members of the Sioux Lookout Meno Ya Win Health Centre Foundation and (SLMHC) Mental Health and Addictions Program.
