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.

IN THE SPOTLIGHT
Molly Hemenway, NP, Medical Volunteer
"It is such a gift to see the kids I take care of year round come to Roundup and dance, fish, climb the rock wall.do things they would never do at home. Camp will do more than I or any medical personnel can do for these kids. I've seen it. The campers take what they learn at Roundup River Ranch with them and so do we as medical professionals. I often play camp songs in clinic and dance with my patients. I find myself asking my patients, 'Do you remember when you did this at camp?' Their whole demeanor changes and they are reminded how strong and capable they are."
