“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.

In their own words.
