Medical Advisory Committee

There’s a lot of big thinking behind all this fun.

The Roundup River Ranch Medical Advisory Committee is made up of a diverse group of medical professionals whose expertise is instrumental in ensuring that we support the unique needs of our campers. They determine disease groups for our camp to serve, provide input regarding medical policies and procedures, and serve as advocates for Roundup River Ranch in their respective medical facilities.
