Volunteer at Family Camp

Our volunteers love Family Camp. After all, there’s no age limit on silliness, laughter, or needing a break from the real world.

At Roundup River Ranch, families are supported with love and empathy as they relish this unique chance to escape the stress of their child’s medical condition, and connect with others who are on a similar journey. This camp offers an opportunity for volunteers to interact not only with our campers, but with their parents and siblings. By the end of camp, everyone feels like one big family.

Our Family Camp is modeled after all the fun and joy of our Summer Camp program. Family Camp sessions are full of laughter, rest and rejuvenation – giving families time to focus on the joy of being together, creating cherished memories.
