Group of backpackers on one of our outdoor adventure camps.California Outdoor Adventure Camps

Ridiculously fun adventure camps in God’s creation.

Rock-N-Water Christian Camp’s summer outdoor adventure camps are designed for youth groups (junior high, middle school, and high school), schools, and families. Christian-led adventures in creation make the opportunities for fun, deeper relationships and spiritual growth almost unavoidable. These one-day trips in the outdoors of California are great on their own, and can be combined into two to five day Christian summer camps for the ultimate high point of your summer experience.

Why outdoor adventures?

Experiencing God’s creation through a summer adventure like whitewater rafting, rock climbing, or backpacking is a great way to help groups and individuals grow in their Christian faith. Our adventure programs in the outdoors provide an organic platform for helping to move campers and teens out of their comfort zones. Removing an individual or group from the familiarity of their normal everyday surroundings of life assists in making learning opportunities more likely to have a lasting impact. Experiences like rushing uncontrollably into crashing whitewater rapids, clinging to the side of a cliff, and being amazed by discovering unexpected new sights and sounds around every turn of the hillside all serve to help shift campers out of their comfort zones, and into their growth zones – where the journey towards lasting personal growth and development really begins.
