There’s some great news for both our community and for kids with serious illnesses in our 11-state Rocky Mountain region. Roundup River Ranch, a provisional member of the Hole in the Wall camps founded by Paul Newman, will open in the summer of 2011. The camp is situated on 85 acres just north of Dotsero, right on the Colorado River. Construction is well under way, and the medical center and several other buildings are now under roof.

We at the camp are actively seeking vintage farm, ranch and mining artifacts that could be displayed at the camp. So, if you have vintage equipment that has been a part of Colorado’s cultural heritage and history, we’d like to offer you the opportunity of sharing that history with the campers. The artifacts will be spread around the camp as an important aspect of the landscape design. Please see our website at roundupriver to learn more about this amazing project. If you would like to discuss becoming a part of Roundup River Ranch’s development and history by donating equipment, please contact Paul St Ruth at 970-926-2448.
