Snowshoeing Trips in CaliforniaRock-N-Water2018-01-12T08:08:35+00:00
Travel into the Sierra Nevada Mountains of California with your youth. Explore a winter wonderland of snow, ice, and the beauty of God’s creation. Our staff will take you snowshoeing through forests and beside lakes for a time of exploration on our guided snowshoe tours. We will take care of all the logistics so that you and your leaders can focus on what you came here for, to better connect with your youth, and to help encourage them along in their Christian faith.
Our camp counselor staff will also be your outdoor guides as we customize the snowshoe adventures and activities of your snowshoeing trips to best meet your group and the goals you have for your winter retreat. We can explore the backcountry of secluded snow covered hills, watch the sunset from atop a mountain peak, hike on cross country trails around the lakes on snowshoes, play snowball-paintball, build snow caves, and of course go sledding. We’ll also make sure to provide some great quiet times alone in God’s snow covered mountains as we explore all that the outdoors has to offer.
Each of our guided snowshoeing tours visits a fully furnished cabin. While we’d like this winter adventure to be more on the rustic side, having a Dryer and Hot Shower available for emergencies allows us to be more adventurous with the time we spend out in the snow. We have cell phone reception too (for emergencies only).
Weather can be unpredictable, and so we have amazingly fun contingency plans in place for a wide variety of weather conditions (from too much to too little snow) to ensure a high quality winter adventure experience regardless of the weather. And of course, we will talk with you in the rare event that conditions become so strong that we need to cancel your trip.
Each of our mountain snowshoeing winter trips is designed to not only get your group to know each other better, but to also help youth to experience first hand the beauty of God’s creation so that they might come to better know their loving savior Jesus Christ through fun outdoor adventures, and intentional campfire devotions as we dig deep into God’s Word.
It’s our passion to not only get youth into the outdoors, but to also help them to actually stop and experience the outdoors first hand while they are here. Too often with end up overloading camp programing with non-stop activities such that even though we are in the middle of God’s amazing creation, our students hardly have more than a few minutes each day to actually look up and see the world outside. We want to change that.
Each of our adventures include time intentionally set aside to give campers an opportunity to just stop and think. Often times this takes the form of a quiet time that we’ll front load with a short devotional before spreading the group out for a time of quiet reflection.

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.
