    A Five Day Adventure Camp - Amazing relationship building time while your group is secluded in the wilderness of God's creation makes this trip our favorite Christian summer camp. We will spend a day backpacking in to our base camp in the Sierra Mountains Wilderness. We'll spend a few days out there, canyoneering, and rock climbing. Then we will spend a day backpacking back out of the backcountry. To top if off, we'll celebrate on the fifth day with Class III river rafting on the South Fork of the American River.  While out in the backcountry, we'll explore God's playground, and challenge ourselves to grow in our Christian faith through quiet times, campfires, climbing, waterslides, hiking, and rappelling off a 90ft. cliff. We believe this trip is simply... Unbeatable!

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. We focus our program on biblical principals, and we use the help of nature, friendship, and challenge to develop character.
