About Volunteering

“Volunteers” seems like such an inadequate term. You are really our do-it-all, super-hero, mind-boggling miracle workers.

We really, truly (pinkie-swear) couldn’t do it without you.

It takes a lot of big hearts and willing hands to keep up with so many vibrant, excited, deserving campers and their families. Our amazing volunteers support Roundup River Ranch through both people-power and cost savings.

Small Investment. Huge Returns.

Since no camper ever pays a penny to attend Roundup River Ranch, our volunteers are truly what make it all possible. Did you know our volunteers save us over $160,000 per session? That is a lot of priceless life-changing experiences you’re about to make happen.

Every single thing we do, every decision we make, every game we play, even every song we sing are done in the best interest of our campers. All of the grown-ups here realize what an important role we play in the lives of the kids we serve. Our volunteers lead by example, value and support each other, cheer for each other’s successes and join forces as innovators and leaders. Through intentional, empowering experiences volunteers help kids and families discover their own powers, conquer fears and leave camp feeling more confident than ever. Everyone makes a difference and shapes our camp family.
