Winter 2020 Programs
Wherever you are, whenever you need the magic of camp, Roundup River Ranch will MEET YOU THERE.
Roundup River Ranch continues to develop and evolve our programs to meet the needs of children with serious illnesses through the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond. Alternative off-site and online programming will be offered year-round using engaging curriculum that allows campers the opportunity to learn, grow, and socialize. Campers will connect with other children with similar diagnoses, make friends, and participate in the joy and silliness of camp from the comfort of their own homes. Now, more than ever, our campers need to develop skills of resiliency and optimism. These winter programs are open to campers ages 7-17 of all medical diagnoses and their siblings.

Camp Online is an online camp experience.

We have a variety of different online experiences that our campers and their families can choose to participate in this winter. Click here to view our full Winter 2020 Camp Online schedule.

ONLINE CAMPER REUNIONS
Online Camper Reunions will give campers and their families a feeling of connection during a time of isolation. Camper Reunions will be a variety of different experiences for our entire camp family to join online and connect as part of this community. Camper Reunions may be attended by the whole family, part of the family, or the diagnosed child. The diagnosed child must be between the ages of 5-17. We encourage the whole family to join the fun! Children under the age of 7 will need the support of an adult. Click here to see our Camper Reunion schedule.
Joy, Delivered is an amazing out-of-the-box camp experience! The magic and joy of camp will be delivered with supplies, activities, and opportunities to experience the joy of camp independently without going online.

Yes! You can sign up for any and all of our winter programs that your family would like to participate in. The s’more the merrier!
As always, ALL programs provided by Roundup River Ranch are FREE of charge to our families!
We understand that too much screen time is not good for campers. We have intentionally broken up the day to ensure breaks. Programming will also be interactive and engaging to get kids up, moving, and dancing! Don’t worry… there will be lots of wiggling, giggling, and chatting!
A typical day will vary by program. However, we can guarantee kids will have an opportunity to get moving, meet other kids, and be inspired by positive role models! Programs are designed to ensure kids are not just sitting in front of a screen. They are interactive, include a balance of large group and small group activities, and are participatory.
Roundup River Ranch takes the safety of campers very seriously! We are using a platform called Jigsaw Interactive. Originally designed as an educational program, Jigsaw Interactive makes child safety a priority! It is all online – no download is required. This means the data is encrypted, it does not (and cannot!) collect data outside of a session.
All activities will be led and supervised by staff and volunteers who our campers know and love. They will all pass a background check, have reference checks, and participate in training that includes a focus on online safety. Campers will always be supervised by a minimum of two trained adults.
Each block of time will include an all camp activity and a cabin group activity. Campers will enjoy all the things they love about Camp – Early Elk, The Best Day Ever, cabin activities, camp dancing, singing, Stage Night, Candle Chat, and much more!
Camp Online does NOT require a download. The platform will work best on a desktop, laptop, or Chromebook with a microphone and web camera. It will also work on a tablet, iPad, or smartphone.
Many school districts are allowing families to ‘check out’ a Chromebook. Roundup River Ranch is happy to support this ask. We have a letter you can share about the value of camp for your student. If you are unable to ‘check out’ a Chromebook, please consider the smartphone options. If additional support is needed, please reach out to our camper recruiters at (970) 524-5713.
