Camp Session Volunteers

Roundup River Ranch will no longer be requiring the COVID vaccine for all campers, families, staff, or volunteers. Because of the population of children we serve, we still strongly and highly recommend the COVID vaccine to protect yourself and our campers. Learn more. 

Onsite Camp Session Volunteers support Roundup River Ranch camp programs in person at our camp location in Gypsum, Colorado. All camp programs provide intentional programming to support our campers’ social-emotional and physical health in a safe and joyful environment. Camp Session Volunteers will directly support our campers in various positions. Click here to applyview below our essential positions that make camp the extra special place it is!

“Camp Online exceeded my expectations completely. I think that I went into it thinking it would feel just like a video call and I left it realizing what RRR has created is truly something magical that mirrors what an actual on-site camp experience would be… you can break into cabins, have side chats, do activities, and dance together.” – 2020 Online Cabin Leader
