DEAR FRIENDS , As we reflect back on fiscal year 2013, we are proud to share our accomplishments with you. Together with the Board of Directors and Roundup River Ranch staff, we recognize and appreciate the generosity extended by friends and supporters last year. By contributing time, talent, and resources to Roundup River Ranch, you made a difference in the lives of hundreds of children with chronic and life-threatening illnesses. You gave them what they needed most – a chance to take a break from being a patient and enjoy an experience where they are not defined by their illness, a time to make friends who understand, and an opportunity to simply have fun. In 2013 we celebrated the Summer of Wish and Wonder, and what a camp season of wonderment and wishes coming true it was! We are proud to highlight the following 2013 accomplishments: ★ Provided hope, joy, laughter, and friendship to 591 campers through fun and empowering camp experiences. That’s 52% increase from the total number of individuals served in 2012. And, perhaps best of all, camp was free to all thanks to the generous support of friends like you. ★ Offered 10 camp sessions – six Summer Program sessions and four Family Program sessions – to individuals from 14 different states. ★ Expanded the illness groups served and the programmatic opportunities available at camp. ★ Exceeded the annual fundraising goal for the first time in our history. ★ Hosted the first-ever Roundup River Ranch Camper Reunion, which was attended by 164 camp alumni and fostered an environment for campers to reconnect with old friends as they enjoyed a little camp fun. ★ Implemented facilities improvements to make the site more accessible for campers. Key improvements included paving major walking paths at camp, building a new shade structure at the fishing pond for campers to enjoy, renovating the Homestead Cabin, and installing solar gate openers. ★ Hosted  the second annual A Grateful Harvest at camp and the third annual City Slicker Soiree in Denver. Our two signature events, along with other special events hosted throughout the year, raised a total of $871,046, an increase of 27% from 2012. ★ Added six new members to the Board of Directors. Welcome Steve Cohen, Drew Hollenbeck, Mike Imperi, Lynn Janklow, Julie Sullivan, and Matt Teeters to the Board! ★ Impacted the lives of children and families long after their time at Roundup River Ranch has ended. The confidence, strength, courage, and social connectedness discovered at camp continues when campers return to their home communities. We are humbled, amazed, and inspired by what you helped make possible in 2013. And, we look forward to the great achievements we will celebrate in 2014 and beyond. From the bottom of our hearts, we thank you for embracing and supporting the children and families served by Roundup River Ranch. Always remember that you are celebrated in the endless laughter and smiles of children with chronic and life-threatening illnesses whose lives are enriched by the healing power of camp.

With Gratitude,

The Camper Ambassador Program provides opportunities for campers to help share the magic of camp with friends throughout the community. This year, 12 campers and their families were chosen to participate in the program, and we couldn’t be more excited to introduce you to this group of talented, committed, and enthusiastic campers. In addition to these Ambassadors, we have many other amazing campers who help us each year, sharing their stories, talents, and love for camp. Throughout the annual report you’ll meet our Camper Ambassadors and learn why they love camp. And, this is just the beginning. Stay tuned this year to see the Ambassadors and other campers in action, sharing their love of camp with you.

LOOKING AHEAD: 2014 CAMP SEASON “REASON TO DANCE!” That’s what happens at Roundup River Ranch – campers discover reasons to dance and they celebrate. And, we’re proud to announce that it’s the theme for the 2014 camp season. We’re challenging the campers to remember all the reasons to dance both at Roundup River Ranch and when they return home. The possibilities are endless! We can’t wait to share with you the many reasons campers dance as the season progresses. This year, we strive to: ★ Enrich the lives of at least 700 individuals through empowering camp experiences at Roundup River Ranch. Camp experiences that are always offered free of charge thanks to the support of the community. ★ Enhance the camper experience at Roundup River Ranch by including new program and activity offerings, adding an expanded Climbing Heights As Peers (CHAP) leadership program for 16 and 17 year old campers. ★ Encourage continued philanthropic support of Roundup River Ranch among individuals, corporations, and foundations from the communities we serve. ★ Extend the Roundup River Ranch service region to serve even more campers from other states.

Meet Alicia Age: 16 Hometown: Lakewood, CO

What Alicia Learned at Camp: “I learned that my experience as a kid only made me stronger and I also learned not to take life for granted because it is truly a miracle that I am here today. I used to think that my experience closed so many doors for me in life and limited me to do just simple things, but I know now that my transplant opened a million doors for me that were not open before, doors such as this one, sharing my love for camp.”

Camp, quite simply, wouldn’t be possible if it weren’t for the compassionate, dedicated, giving, and truly amazing volunteers who donated their time and talents to Roundup River Ranch. There were volunteers who served tirelessly in the cabin, always finding new ways to make the campers smile and feel special, medical volunteers who provided compassionate medical care as they connected with their patients, kitchen volunteers who cooked hundreds of pounds of bacon, office volunteers who stuffed more envelopes than can be counted, event volunteers, and so many more individuals and groups who contributed to camp. Regardless of the task, they did what was needed with a smile to achieve one main goal – make a difference to the campers. We offer our sincerest thanks and innumerable high fives to each and every volunteer who supported Roundup River Ranch in 2013. The below list highlights everyone who volunteered at Roundup River Ranch between November 1, 2012 and October 31, 2013. We carefully reviewed the names that are listed;

What Alex Says about Camp: “Roundup River Ranch is a place where you can be yourself. It is a week of fun and activities many of us would not try without coming to camp. It was a week when I can let everything out. I did not have to worry about anything and I just had fun!”

DAY IN THE LIFE OF A ROUNDUP RIVER RANCH CAMPER 7:30 a.m. Early Elk – Early rising campers kickoff the day with an optional camp activity. From yoga to fishing and other recreational activities, there’s no better way to start the day. 8:15 a.m. Best Day Ever – Every day at Roundup River Ranch is the best day ever! A silly celebration of camp, a fun-filled weather report, and more kick off the Best Day Ever!

CAMP PROGRAM SUMMER CAMP PROGRAM Freedom. Laughter. Fun. Success. Opportunity. Learning New Things. Friendship. Best Week Ever. I Never Wanted to Leave. These are all phrases that Roundup River Ranch campers have used to describe the Summer Camp Program. Roundup River Ranch’s Summer Camp Program provides an experience that encourages children with serious illnesses to build selfconfidence and discover the courage to try things they never thought they could do. It’s an opportunity for children who are often defined by their illness or condition to enjoy a week of freedom and fun. Roundup River Ranch campers create a community with others who understand their medical journey; where stories are shared with those who have had similar experiences, forming a special community of friends that lasts beyond their time at camp. Each Summer Camp session serves approximately 60 children between the ages of seven and 17. In 2013, six seven-day camp sessions were held; six sessions will also be held in 2014.

CHAP PROGRAM The Climbing Heights As Peers (CHAP) program is the Roundup River Ranch leadership program for 16 and 17 year old campers living with a chronic or lifethreatening illness who are excited about developing leadership skills and who have proven their readiness for this opportunity. CHAP campers will develop their leadership capacity through specialized, fun, and reflection based programming which will teach them important skills such as team building, teamwork, independence, communication, and role modelling. CHAPs will complete a variety of activities to help them recognize and develop their own leadership styles as they learn practical applications of new found leadership skills both in and out of camp. These CHAPs will serve as role models for all campers and they will demonstrate appropriate ways to embrace and celebrate camp.

FAMILY CAMP PROGRAM During Roundup River Ranch a Family Camp session, it’s not uncommon to see children cheering for their parents as they nervously climb to the top of the climbing wall or mom and dad donning silly costumes at Carnival Night; nor is it uncommon to see families connecting with each other, laughing, smiling, and remembering how much fun they have together as a family as they leave the worries of illness behind. Family Camp offers children ages 17 and younger with a chronic or life-threatening illness and their immediate family members respite from illness and an opportunity to meet other families with similar experiences. Each Family Camp session serves approximately 18 families over a three-day weekend session. In 2013, four Family Camp sessions were held. In 2014, five Family Camp sessions will be held.

8:30 a.m. Breakfast – The most important meal of the day, often served with sides of bacon - one of our campers’ favorite foods - and dancing. 9:15 a.m. Cabin Cleanup 10:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. ACTIVITIES!! – Campers rotate through two activity blocks and enjoy art, the challenge course, drama, fishing, nature and discovery, horses, and more! 12:30 p.m. Lunch – After a fun-filled morning of activities, it’s time to groove for your food, refuel, and share stories. And then there’s more dancing and repeat-after-me songs. 1:30 p.m. Feet Off Floor Time – Having fun at camp is hard work. Campers enjoy rest time in the middle day to recharge as they prepare for a busy afternoon of camp fun. 2:45 p.m. ACTIVITIES!! – Because activities in the morning aren’t enough, there are even more activities offered in the afternoon. From rotating to the activity areas or participating in an all-camp activity like Silly Olympics, imagine lots of messy, silly, crazy, wacky, and paint-filled festivities.

5:00 p.m. Cabin Time – Some of the best time is spent in the cabin sharing stories from the day, playing games, dancing, and enjoying new friends before dinner and evening activities.

6:00 p.m. Dinner – Can you say No-Hands Spaghetti Dinner? Utensils are sometimes optional at dinner as entire meals are eaten without your hands. And, of course, dinner is followed by dancing, dancing, and more dancing!

7:15 p.m. Evening Activity – From Cabin Night to the ever popular Stage Night, campfire, and more, evening activities provide yet another opportunity for camp fun either as a cabin or an entire camp.

8:15 p.m. Candle Chat – Following a day of busy activities, it’s time for reflection in a safe, respectful environment. Candle Chat provides a special opportunity to share and reflect, helping campers recognize their strength and the commonality they share with others.

10:00 p.m. Lights Out – Bed time! Lots of rest is needed to prepare for another fun and exciting day at camp. 2013 Annual Report | 4

THE IMPACT

OF CAMP KEY FINDINGS What the Experts at Yale Say about SeriousFun

During the summer of 2012, 254 families from Roundup River Ranch and other SeriousFun Camps around the world completed surveys both before and after camp to examine the impact of residential camps on the lives of campers and their families. Roundup River Ranch was proud to participate in this collaborative study facilitated by Yale Child Center to demonstrate the importance of camp in the lives of children with serious illnesses. Participants completed surveys prior to camp, one month following, and six months following to determine the lasting effects of camp. The results of the study demonstrated what the campers have reported anecdotally since Roundup River Ranch opened in 2011 – camp makes a profound difference in many areas of their life. Camp is more than just fun and games – it’s about self-confidence, forming friendships, improving the quality of one’s life, and so much more.

In honor of Ali Garrett: Wayne Connell

Georgia Gogel Bronxville, NY & Edwards, CO

In memory of Frank J. Gizzi: Yvonne and D. Robert Oppenheimer Board Member Georgia Gogel and her husband, Don, knew as soon as they watched the original Hole in the Wall Gang Camp video that they wanted to become involved with Roundup River Ranch. They decided camp would be their way to support the community that meant so much to their family – they wanted to give back to a place that had given them so much. In addition to providing philanthropic support to Roundup River Ranch and serving on Roundup River Ranch’s Board of Directors, Georgia is the Roundup River Ranch representative on the SeriousFun Children’s Network Board. Don was recently elected Chairman of the SeriousFun Children’s Network Board of Directors. Georgia and Don have spent countless hours volunteering at Camp, washing hundreds of dishes in the kitchen and learning so much by watching camp in action. Georgia will tell you, “There’s nothing like it.”

Changes in Children Noticed by Their Families Following Camp:

83% of parents reported noticing an increase in their child’s confidence

In honor of The Giller Family: Alex Quinones, Lia Gore and Frank Haluska

One of Georgia’s favorite memories from camp this summer was watching Arrival Day. “It was impossible to remain dry eyed as I saw the sheer joy on so many young faces as campers were reunited with counselors and camp friends from the prior summer,” she said. “The overwhelming aura of utter happiness and love showed so clearly how camp provides such important human connections (and the joy that comes from those connections) to children who have spent so much of their lives isolated in hospital rooms. Camp lets our campers be kids again, with other kids, defined not by their illnesses but by being a part of the Roundup River Ranch community. This was Paul Newman’s dream and, wherever he is, I know he had a big smile on his face when he saw that group of returning campers bound off the bus to once again settle into camp, to be kids again, kicking back their heels to have some serious fun. That is what camp is about and Roundup River Ranch is – a shining example of the miracles that can happen when children who have been so challenged are able to experience the joy of childhood. It is a wonderful thing that has changed my life forever.” A special thanks to Georgia and the entire Gogel family for your tireless and inspiring commitment to Roundup River Ranch.

Makings Friends & Staying In Touch After Camp: Eagle, CO Donna Meyer has been involved with Roundup River Ranch since the beginning – she was one of Camp’s first employees. She was inspired by the mission and looked forward to the challenge of committing her time and talents to ensuring that children with chronic and life-threatening illnesses could enjoy a week away from hospitals, doctors’ appointments, and the burdens of their illness. Donna finds supporting Roundup River Ranch gratifying, inspirational, and satisfying, and more than anything, she loves watching the kids having fun at camp.

Friendships and Social Support - There was significant increase in friendship satisfaction following camp.

Camper Quality of Life - After camp, there was a significant decrease in the frequency of psychosocial problems.

A fixture at Camp each summer, Donna has personally introduced many new donors and friends to Roundup River Ranch by inviting them out for a tour and lunch with campers – she takes great joy in seeing their reaction to the experience. She’s been able to connect donors with a wonderful cause that brings happiness to kids; it’s something that donors can believe in. If you haven’t toured Camp, Donna would encourage you to do so next season; maybe you’ll even see her at camp touring herself. From tours to hosting events and serving as one of Camp’s most loyal friends, we thank you, Donna, for all that you do.

“MY SON’S YEAR OF TREATMENT WAS FULL OF STRESS AND DISCOMFORT. HE SPENT TIME IN THE HOSPITAL, HAD MANY TESTS, AND TOO MANY NEEDLE POKES TO COUNT. HE HAD TO LEARN TO SWALLOW PILLS AND HAD TO HAVE THE SELF-DISCIPLINE TO MAKE HIMSELF TAKE MORE PILLS EACH DAY THAN AN OLD MAN. HE HAD TO DO ALL OF THIS TO GET WELL, AND NONE OF IT WAS OPTIONAL. CAMP WAS GREAT BECAUSE HE WAS ABLE TO GET AWAY FROM IT ALL, HAVE NO WORRIES, AND JUST BE A KID. HE COULD BE SILLY AND ADVENTUROUS AND HE CHOSE WANT HE WANTED TO DO. MOST OF ALL, HE COULD DO ALL OF THIS BUT WE STILL HAD THE COMFORT OF KNOWING THAT THERE WAS A MEDICAL STAFF THERE TO TAKE CARE OF HIS NEEDS.” - Camper Parent

The importance of social support:

30%

of families reported that their family’s social support had increased one month after camp; changes in support reflect meeting other camp families and interacting with others from camp through social media, support groups, blogs, etc.

About Yale Child Study Center: The Child Study Center is a department at Yale University School of Medicine which brings together multiple disciplines to further the understanding of the problems of children and families. Among the many disciplines are child psychiatry, pediatrics, genetics, neurobiology, epidemiology, psychology, nursing, social work and social policy. The missiwn of the Center is to understand child development, social, behavioral, and emotional adjustment, and psychiatric disorders and to help children and families in need of care. * Research completed in 2013 supported 2012 results. Study will continue during 2014 camp season at specific camps within SeriousFun Children’s Network. Efforts will be focused on increasing camper participation to improve long-term study conclusiveness.

What Adjoa Says about Camp: “It’s one of the best places in the world. It’s a camp you don’t have to be scared what health problems you have. It’s really, really fun. Even though you might be far away from home, the counselors make Roundup River Ranch feel like home. You even get to make incredibly nice and cool friends, even if you’re sometimes shy like me.”

Declan’s Favorite Memory from Camp: “I loved the climbing wall and participating in the talent show. I felt sad to leave camp, but I felt proud that I could do new things and make friends!”

What Madison Learned at Camp: “I don’t have to be afraid of new things. I spent a lot of my life being afraid of new adventures because of the ‘unknown’, but all you have to have is 20 seconds of courage and it is all worth the adventure!”

How Will Describes Roundup River Ranch: “An amazing place that supports kids and gives them the courage that they need to continue life with their medical problems.”

What Ashtyn Learned at Camp: “I learned that it’s good to be yourself, because you never know who may be just like you. I met one of my best friends at Roundup River Ranch, and she and I share a lot of common interests.”

Ke’von’s Favorite Memory from Camp: “Horseback riding, our cabin, and songs and games in Trent’s Cookhouse.” Ke’von insisted that his mother download all the music from camp to his iPod as soon as we got home from camp so he could continue to sing and dance to his favorites from camp.

Elizabeth’s Favorite Memory from Camp: “Cabin time with my friends during the meteor shower watching the stars. It was unbelievable and such a special moment to share together.”

VOLUNTEERS In 2013, 846 individuals volunteered at Roundup River Ranch. Volunteers made camp possible. They offered smiles, a shoulder to lean on, an encouraging word, medical support, a set of helping hands, invaluable resources, and so much more. And, in many cases, they take more away from the experience than they ever could have imagined. It’s connecting with a child who needs someone to listen, hearing the laughter of a child who hasn’t laughed in quite some time, and discovering how they can help change a child’s life at camp. We think volunteering is a “Reason to Dance”.

OUR 2013 GENEROUS DONORS (November 1, 2012 through October 31, 2013) Every year, hundreds of individuals, corporations, foundations, and in-kind donors make a difference in the life of a child or family by supporting Roundup River Ranch. The generosity extended by these special donors ensures that no child or family will ever have to pay to participate in the life-enriching programs at Roundup River Ranch. Gifts to Roundup River Ranch provide campers more than just a week or weekend camp experience; donors give the gift of friendship, self-confidence, joy, happiness, resiliency, freedom, and so much more.

CORPORATE VOLUNTEER PROFILE: WAL-MART STORES INC. MARKET 390 Thank you, Walmart, for your support and friendship. Your kindness and compassion are inspiring, and we marvel at the lives you touch through your work and generosity. Friends from Wal-Mart have been involved with Roundup River Ranch for nearly four years, and camp just wouldn’t be the same without them. They fell in love with the mission of camp and with the staff people they met along the way; as the years have passed, they remain involved because they love seeing what Roundup River Ranch does for the children served. Walmart Team Volunteers work tirelessly twice a year to get Roundup River Ranch ready for camp, and then, in the fall, they cleanup and

help winterize the site. At each visit, they bring approximately 60 to 100 enthusiastic and hardworking Walmart Associates – this translates to 1,800 to 2,200 volunteer hours annually. Thanks to a generous grant program through Walmart, an annual donation of approximately $10,000 is contributed to support even more campers. And, they surprise camp each year with amazing donations of cleaning supplies, arts and crafts materials, and so many of the other items that Roundup River Ranch needs to remain operational. From their first trip to Roundup River

Ranch to now, Walmart Associates have created hundreds of treasured memories – so many that they think it’s nearly impossible to identify their favorite memory from camp. Friends from Walmart “believe the camp has given to our hearts more than we could ever pay back. To be part of Roundup River Ranch, has enriched our lives and touched our souls.” Their countdown to the April cleanup day is on, and we couldn’t be more excited to see the amazing volunteers from Walmart at camp soon.

Jenna’s Favorite Camp Memory: “My favorite memory from Roundup River Ranch was meeting so many new people. I met kids who are my age and have gone through what I have gone through, which really meant a ton and it was also really cool to see my family relate to other families during Family Camp. My other favorite thing were the activities that we did and how they made me feel like a normal kid again.”

Ryan’s Favorite Memory from Camp: “My favorite memory from Roundup River Ranch is the climbing wall. The first year I didn’t want to do it because I’ve never been up a wall before and I have a visual impairment that leaves me with no depth perception. I was a little afraid of the climbing wall. My counselors eventually encouraged and inspired me to go up the wall and I did. It was so fun. The next year I did it right way with no fear. I was really proud of myself.”

EVENTS 2013 was a spectacular year for events to raise money and awareness for Roundup River Ranch. Friends throughout the region hosted, attended, and supported a variety of events to help send even more children to camp.

A Grateful Harvest The second annual A Grateful Harvest was held at Roundup River Ranch in August. Raising over $700,000 to support camp, the event was one to remember. From the exquisite menu offerings and wine pairings from Vail’s top chefs to Camper Katie Cameron’s heartfelt rendition of “Brave” by Sara Bareilles, guests were reminded of the courage and tenacity of the campers as they battle their illnesses and the important role camp plays in this journey. A Grateful Harvest was graciously co-hosted by Board Members Kathy Cole and Carole Watters.

EVENTS 2013 was a spectacular year for events to raise money and awareness for Roundup River Ranch. Friends throughout the region hosted, attended, and supported a variety of events to help send even more children to camp.

A Grateful Harvest The second annual A Grateful Harvest was held at Roundup River Ranch in August. Raising over $700,000 to support camp, the event was one to remember. From the exquisite menu offerings and wine pairings from Vail’s top chefs to Camper Katie Cameron’s heartfelt rendition of “Brave” by Sara Bareilles, guests were reminded of the courage and tenacity of the campers as they battle their illnesses and the important role camp plays in this journey. A Grateful Harvest was graciously co-hosted by Board Members Kathy Cole and Carole Watters.

OUR 2013 GENEROUS DONORS (November 1, 2012 through October 31, 2013) Every year, hundreds of individuals, corporations, foundations, and in-kind donors make a difference in the life of a child or family by supporting Roundup River Ranch. The generosity extended by these special donors ensures that no child or family will ever have to pay to participate in the life-enriching programs at Roundup River Ranch. Gifts to Roundup River Ranch provide campers more than just a week or weekend camp experience; donors give the gift of friendship, self-confidence, joy, happiness, resiliency, freedom, and so much more.

CORPORATE VOLUNTEER PROFILE: WAL-MART STORES INC. MARKET 390 Thank you, Walmart, for your support and friendship. Your kindness and compassion are inspiring, and we marvel at the lives you touch through your work and generosity. Friends from Wal-Mart have been involved with Roundup River Ranch for nearly four years, and camp just wouldn’t be the same without them. They fell in love with the mission of camp and with the staff people they met along the way; as the years have passed, they remain involved because they love seeing what Roundup River Ranch does for the children served. Walmart Team Volunteers work tirelessly twice a year to get Roundup River Ranch ready for camp, and then, in the fall, they cleanup and

help winterize the site. At each visit, they bring approximately 60 to 100 enthusiastic and hardworking Walmart Associates – this translates to 1,800 to 2,200 volunteer hours annually. Thanks to a generous grant program through Walmart, an annual donation of approximately $10,000 is contributed to support even more campers. And, they surprise camp each year with amazing donations of cleaning supplies, arts and crafts materials, and so many of the other items that Roundup River Ranch needs to remain operational. From their first trip to Roundup River

Ranch to now, Walmart Associates have created hundreds of treasured memories – so many that they think it’s nearly impossible to identify their favorite memory from camp. Friends from Walmart “believe the camp has given to our hearts more than we could ever pay back. To be part of Roundup River Ranch, has enriched our lives and touched our souls.” Their countdown to the April cleanup day is on, and we couldn’t be more excited to see the amazing volunteers from Walmart at camp soon.

Jenna’s Favorite Camp Memory: “My favorite memory from Roundup River Ranch was meeting so many new people. I met kids who are my age and have gone through what I have gone through, which really meant a ton and it was also really cool to see my family relate to other families during Family Camp. My other favorite thing were the activities that we did and how they made me feel like a normal kid again.”

Ryan’s Favorite Memory from Camp: “My favorite memory from Roundup River Ranch is the climbing wall. The first year I didn’t want to do it because I’ve never been up a wall before and I have a visual impairment that leaves me with no depth perception. I was a little afraid of the climbing wall. My counselors eventually encouraged and inspired me to go up the wall and I did. It was so fun. The next year I did it right way with no fear. I was really proud of myself.”

What Ashtyn Learned at Camp: “I learned that it’s good to be yourself, because you never know who may be just like you. I met one of my best friends at Roundup River Ranch, and she and I share a lot of common interests.”

Ke’von’s Favorite Memory from Camp: “Horseback riding, our cabin, and songs and games in Trent’s Cookhouse.” Ke’von insisted that his mother download all the music from camp to his iPod as soon as we got home from camp so he could continue to sing and dance to his favorites from camp.

Elizabeth’s Favorite Memory from Camp: “Cabin time with my friends during the meteor shower watching the stars. It was unbelievable and such a special moment to share together.”

On behalf of the amazing campers and families who attend Roundup River Ranch, we offer sincerest thanks and gratitude to the donors who supported and believed in the power of camp.

VOLUNTEERS In 2013, 846 individuals volunteered at Roundup River Ranch. Volunteers made camp possible. They offered smiles, a shoulder to lean on, an encouraging word, medical support, a set of helping hands, invaluable resources, and so much more. And, in many cases, they take more away from the experience than they ever could have imagined. It’s connecting with a child who needs someone to listen, hearing the laughter of a child who hasn’t laughed in quite some time, and discovering how they can help change a child’s life at camp. We think volunteering is a “Reason to Dance”.

Even though you might be far away from home, the counselors make Roundup River Ranch feel like home. You even get to make incredibly nice and cool friends, even if you’re sometimes shy like me.”

“MY SON’S YEAR OF TREATMENT WAS FULL OF STRESS AND DISCOMFORT. HE SPENT TIME IN THE HOSPITAL, HAD MANY TESTS, AND TOO MANY NEEDLE POKES TO COUNT. HE HAD TO LEARN TO SWALLOW PILLS AND HAD TO HAVE THE SELF-DISCIPLINE TO MAKE HIMSELF TAKE MORE PILLS EACH DAY THAN AN OLD MAN. HE HAD TO DO ALL OF THIS TO GET WELL, AND NONE OF IT WAS OPTIONAL. CAMP WAS GREAT BECAUSE HE WAS ABLE TO GET AWAY FROM IT ALL, HAVE NO WORRIES, AND JUST BE A KID. HE COULD BE SILLY AND ADVENTUROUS AND HE CHOSE WANT HE WANTED TO DO. MOST OF ALL, HE COULD DO ALL OF THIS BUT WE STILL HAD THE COMFORT OF KNOWING THAT THERE WAS A MEDICAL STAFF THERE TO TAKE CARE OF HIS NEEDS.” - Camper Parent

The importance of social support:

30%

of families reported that their family’s social support had increased one month after camp; changes in support reflect meeting other camp families and interacting with others from camp through social media, support groups, blogs, etc.

THE IMPACT

OF CAMP KEY FINDINGS What the Experts at Yale Say about SeriousFun

During the summer of 2012, 254 families from Roundup River Ranch and other SeriousFun Camps around the world completed surveys both before and after camp to examine the impact of residential camps on the lives of campers and their families. Roundup River Ranch was proud to participate in this collaborative study facilitated by Yale Child Center to demonstrate the importance of camp in the lives of children with serious illnesses. Participants completed surveys prior to camp, one month following, and six months following to determine the lasting effects of camp. The results of the study demonstrated what the campers have reported anecdotally since Roundup River Ranch opened in 2011 – camp makes a profound difference in many areas of their life. Camp is more than just fun and games – it’s about self-confidence, forming friendships, improving the quality of one’s life, and so much more.

Georgia Gogel Bronxville, NY & Edwards, CO

In memory of Frank J. Gizzi: Yvonne and D. Robert Oppenheimer Board Member Georgia Gogel and her husband, Don, knew as soon as they watched the original Hole in the Wall Gang Camp video that they wanted to become involved with Roundup River Ranch. They decided camp would be their way to support the community that meant so much to their family – they wanted to give back to a place that had given them so much. In addition to providing philanthropic support to Roundup River Ranch and serving on Roundup River Ranch’s Board of Directors, Georgia is the Roundup River Ranch representative on the SeriousFun Children’s Network Board. Don was recently elected Chairman of the SeriousFun Children’s Network Board of Directors. Georgia and Don have spent countless hours volunteering at Camp, washing hundreds of dishes in the kitchen and learning so much by watching camp in action. Georgia will tell you, “There’s nothing like it.”

One of Georgia’s favorite memories from camp this summer was watching Arrival Day. “It was impossible to remain dry eyed as I saw the sheer joy on so many young faces as campers were reunited with counselors and camp friends from the prior summer,” she said. “The overwhelming aura of utter happiness and love showed so clearly how camp provides such important human connections (and the joy that comes from those connections) to children who have spent so much of their lives isolated in hospital rooms. Camp lets our campers be kids again, with other kids, defined not by their illnesses but by being a part of the Roundup River Ranch community. This was Paul Newman’s dream and, wherever he is, I know he had a big smile on his face when he saw that group of returning campers bound off the bus to once again settle into camp, to be kids again, kicking back their heels to have some serious fun. That is what camp is about and Roundup River Ranch is – a shining example of the miracles that can happen when children who have been so challenged are able to experience the joy of childhood. It is a wonderful thing that has changed my life forever.” A special thanks to Georgia and the entire Gogel family for your tireless and inspiring commitment to Roundup River Ranch.

Makings Friends & Staying In Touch After Camp: Eagle, CO Donna Meyer has been involved with Roundup River Ranch since the beginning – she was one of Camp’s first employees. She was inspired by the mission and looked forward to the challenge of committing her time and talents to ensuring that children with chronic and life-threatening illnesses could enjoy a week away from hospitals, doctors’ appointments, and the burdens of their illness. Donna finds supporting Roundup River Ranch gratifying, inspirational, and satisfying, and more than anything, she loves watching the kids having fun at camp.

Camp, quite simply, wouldn’t be possible if it weren’t for the compassionate, dedicated, giving, and truly amazing volunteers who donated their time and talents to Roundup River Ranch. There were volunteers who served tirelessly in the cabin, always finding new ways to make the campers smile and feel special, medical volunteers who provided compassionate medical care as they connected with their patients, kitchen volunteers who cooked hundreds of pounds of bacon, office volunteers who stuffed more envelopes than can be counted, event volunteers, and so many more individuals and groups who contributed to camp. Regardless of the task, they did what was needed with a smile to achieve one main goal – make a difference to the campers. We offer our sincerest thanks and innumerable high fives to each and every volunteer who supported Roundup River Ranch in 2013. The below list highlights everyone who volunteered at Roundup River Ranch between November 1, 2012 and October 31, 2013. We carefully reviewed the names that are listed;

What Alex Says about Camp: “Roundup River Ranch is a place where you can be yourself. It is a week of fun and activities many of us would not try without coming to camp. It was a week when I can let everything out. I did not have to worry about anything and I just had fun!”

DAY IN THE LIFE OF A ROUNDUP RIVER RANCH CAMPER 7:30 a.m. Early Elk – Early rising campers kickoff the day with an optional camp activity. From yoga to fishing and other recreational activities, there’s no better way to start the day. 8:15 a.m. Best Day Ever – Every day at Roundup River Ranch is the best day ever! A silly celebration of camp, a fun-filled weather report, and more kick off the Best Day Ever!

CAMP PROGRAM SUMMER CAMP PROGRAM Freedom. Laughter. Fun. Success. Opportunity. Learning New Things. Friendship. Best Week Ever. I Never Wanted to Leave. These are all phrases that Roundup River Ranch campers have used to describe the Summer Camp Program. Roundup River Ranch’s Summer Camp Program provides an experience that encourages children with serious illnesses to build selfconfidence and discover the courage to try things they never thought they could do. It’s an opportunity for children who are often defined by their illness or condition to enjoy a week of freedom and fun. Roundup River Ranch campers create a community with others who understand their medical journey; where stories are shared with those who have had similar experiences, forming a special community of friends that lasts beyond their time at camp. Each Summer Camp session serves approximately 60 children between the ages of seven and 17. In 2013, six seven-day camp sessions were held; six sessions will also be held in 2014.

CHAP PROGRAM The Climbing Heights As Peers (CHAP) program is the Roundup River Ranch leadership program for 16 and 17 year old campers living with a chronic or lifethreatening illness who are excited about developing leadership skills and who have proven their readiness for this opportunity. CHAP campers will develop their leadership capacity through specialized, fun, and reflection based programming which will teach them important skills such as team building, teamwork, independence, communication, and role modelling. CHAPs will complete a variety of activities to help them recognize and develop their own leadership styles as they learn practical applications of new found leadership skills both in and out of camp. These CHAPs will serve as role models for all campers and they will demonstrate appropriate ways to embrace and celebrate camp.

FAMILY CAMP PROGRAM During Roundup River Ranch a Family Camp session, it’s not uncommon to see children cheering for their parents as they nervously climb to the top of the climbing wall or mom and dad donning silly costumes at Carnival Night; nor is it uncommon to see families connecting with each other, laughing, smiling, and remembering how much fun they have together as a family as they leave the worries of illness behind. Family Camp offers children ages 17 and younger with a chronic or life-threatening illness and their immediate family members respite from illness and an opportunity to meet other families with similar experiences. Each Family Camp session serves approximately 18 families over a three-day weekend session. In 2013, four Family Camp sessions were held. In 2014, five Family Camp sessions will be held.

8:30 a.m. Breakfast – The most important meal of the day, often served with sides of bacon - one of our campers’ favorite foods - and dancing. 9:15 a.m. Cabin Cleanup 10:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. ACTIVITIES!! – Campers rotate through two activity blocks and enjoy art, the challenge course, drama, fishing, nature and discovery, horses, and more! 12:30 p.m. Lunch – After a fun-filled morning of activities, it’s time to groove for your food, refuel, and share stories. And then there’s more dancing and repeat-after-me songs. 1:30 p.m. Feet Off Floor Time – Having fun at camp is hard work. Campers enjoy rest time in the middle day to recharge as they prepare for a busy afternoon of camp fun. 2:45 p.m. ACTIVITIES!! – Because activities in the morning aren’t enough, there are even more activities offered in the afternoon. From rotating to the activity areas or participating in an all-camp activity like Silly Olympics, imagine lots of messy, silly, crazy, wacky, and paint-filled festivities.

5:00 p.m. Cabin Time – Some of the best time is spent in the cabin sharing stories from the day, playing games, dancing, and enjoying new friends before dinner and evening activities.

6:00 p.m. Dinner – Can you say No-Hands Spaghetti Dinner? Utensils are sometimes optional at dinner as entire meals are eaten without your hands. And, of course, dinner is followed by dancing, dancing, and more dancing!

7:15 p.m. Evening Activity – From Cabin Night to the ever popular Stage Night, campfire, and more, evening activities provide yet another opportunity for camp fun either as a cabin or an entire camp.

8:15 p.m. Candle Chat – Following a day of busy activities, it’s time for reflection in a safe, respectful environment. Candle Chat provides a special opportunity to share and reflect, helping campers recognize their strength and the commonality they share with others.

10:00 p.m. Lights Out – Bed time! Lots of rest is needed to prepare for another fun and exciting day at camp. 2013 Annual Report | 4

Camp experiences that are always offered free of charge thanks to the support of the community. ★ Enhance the camper experience at Roundup River Ranch by including new program and activity offerings, adding an expanded Climbing Heights As Peers (CHAP) leadership program for 16 and 17 year old campers. ★ Encourage continued philanthropic support of Roundup River Ranch among individuals, corporations, and foundations from the communities we serve. ★ Extend the Roundup River Ranch service region to serve even more campers from other states.

Meet Alicia Age: 16 Hometown: Lakewood, CO

What Alicia Learned at Camp: “I learned that my experience as a kid only made me stronger and I also learned not to take life for granted because it is truly a miracle that I am here today. I used to think that my experience closed so many doors for me in life and limited me to do just simple things, but I know now that my transplant opened a million doors for me that were not open before, doors such as this one, sharing my love for camp.”

DEAR FRIENDS , As we reflect back on fiscal year 2013, we are proud to share our accomplishments with you. Together with the Board of Directors and Roundup River Ranch staff, we recognize and appreciate the generosity extended by friends and supporters last year. By contributing time, talent, and resources to Roundup River Ranch, you made a difference in the lives of hundreds of children with chronic and life-threatening illnesses. You gave them what they needed most – a chance to take a break from being a patient and enjoy an experience where they are not defined by their illness, a time to make friends who understand, and an opportunity to simply have fun. In 2013 we celebrated the Summer of Wish and Wonder, and what a camp season of wonderment and wishes coming true it was! We are proud to highlight the following 2013 accomplishments: ★ Provided hope, joy, laughter, and friendship to 591 campers through fun and empowering camp experiences. That’s 52% increase from the total number of individuals served in 2012. And, perhaps best of all, camp was free to all thanks to the generous support of friends like you. ★ Offered 10 camp sessions – six Summer Program sessions and four Family Program sessions – to individuals from 14 different states. ★ Expanded the illness groups served and the programmatic opportunities available at camp. ★ Exceeded the annual fundraising goal for the first time in our history. ★ Hosted the first-ever Roundup River Ranch Camper Reunion, which was attended by 164 camp alumni and fostered an environment for campers to reconnect with old friends as they enjoyed a little camp fun. ★ Implemented facilities improvements to make the site more accessible for campers. Key improvements included paving major walking paths at camp, building a new shade structure at the fishing pond for campers to enjoy, renovating the Homestead Cabin, and installing solar gate openers. ★ Hosted  the second annual A Grateful Harvest at camp and the third annual City Slicker Soiree in Denver. Our two signature events, along with other special events hosted throughout the year, raised a total of $871,046, an increase of 27% from 2012. ★ Added six new members to the Board of Directors. Welcome Steve Cohen, Drew Hollenbeck, Mike Imperi, Lynn Janklow, Julie Sullivan, and Matt Teeters to the Board! ★ Impacted the lives of children and families long after their time at Roundup River Ranch has ended. The confidence, strength, courage, and social connectedness discovered at camp continues when campers return to their home communities. We are humbled, amazed, and inspired by what you helped make possible in 2013. And, we look forward to the great achievements we will celebrate in 2014 and beyond. From the bottom of our hearts, we thank you for embracing and supporting the children and families served by Roundup River Ranch. Always remember that you are celebrated in the endless laughter and smiles of children with chronic and life-threatening illnesses whose lives are enriched by the healing power of camp.

With Gratitude,
