Frequently Asked Questions

Should I bring money for buying gifts or snacks at the camp store?

We have intentionally avoided having a souvenir/snack store at our camp. This is to protect the unique atmosphere we have at Rock-N-Water. We don’t think that selling snacks and mementoes is wrong; we just want students to have a break from their everyday “see… want… buy…” routine.

So aside from money for food on your drive too and from Rock-N-Water, there is no need to bring any extra cash.

Souvenir Store

We have intentionally avoided having a store in order to protect the unique atmosphere we have at Rock-N-Water. We don’t think that selling snacks and mementoes is wrong; we just want students to have a break from their everyday want-purchase routine.


We can provide T-Shirts for your entire group if you want them, you will need to order them in advance from the office, and it’s either everyone in your group gets one, or no one gets one. So that no one feels like they missed out, if you do get T-Shirts, we will sneak them to you as you drive away, so groups not getting them will not feel sad they didn’t get one. More info about T-Shirts.

Rafting Photos

When rafting, photos are typically taken of every raft by 3rd party photo companies. We have as special arrangement with the best photography company so that all of our rafting customers get full sized downloadable images included with the regular cost of their trip. You’ll get a special coupon code for claiming your photos via email after you return home.

Going out for Ice Cream

While doing a special evening out for ice cream can be really fun for groups, we’ve also found that the process of stepping back into the world of “civilization” can change the atmosphere and attitude of your campers. So in our professional recommendation, it’s better to not celebrate your last night with a night on the town.

However, if you still want to go, check with your Rock-N-Water Trip Leader for directions and instructions on keeping it on the down-low so that other groups in our camps are not affected or aware of your group doing it.

49er Fun Museum

There is a store located at Marshall Gold Discovery State Historic Park. We avoid it while touring the park for these same reasons as above, and because we really don’t have the time for everyone to stop and shop. If parents must, they can stop by the park’s store on their way home, but please don’t try and stop in their during the trip.

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.
