Growing up in South Lake Tahoe, California, Joshua has been enthralled with the outdoors his whole life.

Things You Only Say At Rock-N-Water

By |2019-09-20T09:01:22-07:00April 2nd, 2019|Stories from Camp|

We love our cultural lingo. Every culture and community develops their own expressions and words with context-specific meaning that, at some level, is a way we connect with each other. It says, “you know me,” when we can communicate with lingo that not everyone else understands. For example, if you understand ski lingo, you can [...]

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.
