“I am delighted to join the board of Roundup River Ranch,” Gallegos. “Working to help children is my passion and the mission of this camp spoke to me. I look forward to enabling children who have a serious illness to enjoy the simple joy of going to camp here in our valley.”
The ranch is located on 85 acres along the Colorado River just north of Dotsero. It’s expected to break ground later this year. The camp will provide children who may not otherwise have the opportunity to experience camp with a fun, memorable, safe and empowering experience, all free of charge. The Children’s Hospital of Denver is the founding partner hospital, ensuring that the children will have on-site the medical services necessary to their conditions.
The camp will serve children from Colorado as well as Wyoming, Montana, New Mexico, Kansas, Nebraska, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Utah and Texas. As a provisional member of The Hole in the Wall Camps, Roundup River Ranch continues Paul Newman’s dream of opening camps for children with serious illnesses.
