    Details & Possible Upgrades

    • To improve the overall quality and safety of our Class IV California river trips, we limit them to High School ages and older. Additionally, we ask that High School participants have a recent day of Class III river rafting experience.
    • By default, each of the above multi-day California whitewater adventures have you arrive around 7 PM the night before (eating dinner before you arrive), and leaving around 6 PM (eating dinner on the road) at the end of your last adventure. If you would like to do the same on a one day trip (we strongly encourage it), it’s just an extra $20/person.
    • If you live more than 3 hours away, or you just want to finish your trip with even more awesomeness, we recommend you add dinner and another night of camping & campfire time to the end of your river trip for just $20/person.
    • There is an extra $15 per person fee for doing river rafting adventures on a Saturday or Sunday.  Why weekends cost more?
    • T-shirts can be ordered for the whole group at $15/person.
    • If you are comparing our prices with generic white water rafting outfitters, please be aware that unlike prices listed for most of their south fork american river rafting trips, our prices already include all taxes and fees.

    Water Flow Statement from El Dorado County

    El Dorado County ask that all rafters on the South Fork of the American River be aware that "Water flows in the South Fork American River result from releases from facilities located upstream. Such water releases are not subject to the control of El Dorado county or commercial rafting companies operating under permits from El Dorado County."

    Special Offers Rafting: Our goal it to make our everyday prices super special, but sometimes we do have special offers for white water rafting.

    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.
