The mural was created by children who have attended the camp and placed inside the hospital, which is a close partner.

One camper, Kyle Hill, spoke about his experience at the camp during the unveiling.

“I’m a camper at Roundup River Ranch and a proud ambassador for this lovely camp for kids with serious illnesses to come and be like any other kid, which is very touching to me because I also have a disability that is hard for me to cope (with), but when I’m at camp I feel welcomed and I feel loved about it,” Hill said.

The camp is located about 50 miles west of Vail and offers full medical, physical and emotional support for its attendees. It’s free for the kids who attend and is funded through donations.
