Medical Volunteer Opportunities

Join us as a medical volunteer. We guarantee you’ll have a hard time deciding who smiles more — you or the campers.

The medical professionals who come to Roundup River Ranch often say that it is their very favorite week of the year. It is a unique time to experience the kids they are so passionate about helping in an entirely new atmosphere. It lets everyone have a chance to see each other in the bright sunlight of fun, childhood games and lasting friendships.

We need you. And so do the kids.

Roundup River Ranch is only possible because of the comprehensive, individualized medical care that is provided to each of our campers. We welcome a diverse group of medical professionals with experience caring for children with the medical conditions we serve. Pediatric clinical experience is preferred and eligibility to volunteer is determined following a personal interview. Preference is given to medical volunteers with experience and training in the diagnoses being served each session.

“Seeing many of our patients develop self-confidence and optimism about their future and bond to their peers is so touching that it re-invigorates us to go back to our daily jobs with a new found dedication.” – Dr. Ron Sokol
