My son and I really

My son and I really enjoyed our time at the camp. Visiting the mines, gold panning, and the swing were big thrills for my son. The devotional that Sunny gave during the bead bracelet making session was my favorite part. He talked about Job and all of the bad things that happened and the way… Read more “My son and I really”

I have now been to Rock-N-Water 5 times and each time is simply unforgettable! The food is delicious, the camp is beautiful, but most importantly, the guides are professional and highly trained such that I feel very safe on the river and in the canyons. I think everyone could use to get thrown around on… Read more “I have now been to”

Very good. I’m not a camper person but I appreciated the area, the activities and the food. It provided a chance to go back to the time when technology did not exist yet. And felt so close to nature and appreciate God’s creation that we neglect sometimes while we struggle to our current life settings.… Read more “Very good. I’m not”

A great bonding and fellowship

A great bonding and fellowship experience with my soon to be a 10-year-old son. We enjoyed how the staff stayed in character from 1854. I was quite surprised by the quality of the food. The Chili and cornbread were surprisingly good. The breakfast was delicious as well.

We had a great time at camp. All the staff were amazing, and prepared for anything. Rain didn’t hamper anything and probably made the trip more memorable. Very grateful for the experience with my daughter. Being able to sing worship songs around the fire was great. Thank you for the memories!

This was a wonderful excursion! I can’t believe how much we did in only 1.5 days! Our guides, especially Emma, JR and his family, helped transport us back in time.

This was an amazing trip to share with my daughter. It gave us much needed one on one time. The crew working there was very organized and enthusiastic and kept us entertained through out our entire trip. It was educational and fun. We are sad we can’t go back.

My daughter and I had a lot of fun! The experience of “time traveling” back to the 1849s was awesome. We explored many different mining caves, dipped our own candles and slept in tents. Bonding with other families about God was icing on the cake. None of us wanted to leave!

Our 4th Grade field trip

Our 4th Grade field trip to Rock-N-Water was fantastic! The students came back from it saying they loved it, which is huge as this is the first time for many to sleep outdoors in a tent. They learned so much about the California Gold Rush and what it would be like to be a miner… Read more “Our 4th Grade field trip”

Great overall experience for the second year in a row. Our host were wonderful. The band was a teacher and student favorite.

Once again my fourth grade class had a wonderful time at Rock-N-Water Christian Camp. The activities were top notch with biblical truth woven throughout the leader’s comments.

I almost died! These huge boulders were falling down the cliff side. It was so loud, it sounded like thunder. I jumped out of the way. I was in awe, not only because I was alive. But I was amazed of how amazing God. He created everything, and this camp, you can really praise God… Read more “I almost died!”

About Rock-N-Water

Statement of Belief

We believe we should, "Love the Lord (our) God with all (our) heart, and with all (our) soul, and with all (our) mind," and "The entire law is summed up in one command: Love your neighbor as yourself." Matthew 22:37, Galatians 5:14. We believe Jesus Christ is the eternal and only Son of God. That He died on the cross as the perfect sacrifice, paying the penalty for all our sins, and then rose from the grave. It is through faith alone in Jesus Christ that we have received the free gift of salvation and eternal life. We are saved by grace, not works, “that no one should boast”. We believe the Bible is accurate, reliable, and the Word of God. (Luke 5:20-24; John 1:1-18; John 3:15-21; John 14:1-15; Ephesians 2; 1 John)

Who we are

Rock-N-Water is a group of Christians who want to impact young people with the joy of God's Living Word, so they might come to know Jesus and pass on God's love with excitement.
