Frequently Asked Questions

What does Free Time or Downtime look like at camp?

We intentionally do not have a lot of unstructured free-time or downtime at camp. We’ll keep you active pretty much all day long.

The little free time there is, will depend a little bit on the kind of trip you are doing.

Outdoor Adventure Trips

Mornings

Our standard Breakfast is served at 8am, so there might be little freetime in the morning depending on when you wake up and how long it takes you to sunblock up and get ready for the day. Some adventures have earlier breakfasts times, and we’ll wake you up accordingly.

If you’d like to do a morning quiet time, just let us know. We can wake your group up, but we’ll be getting things ready for the day’s adventure, so we won’t be able to lead a morning quiet time or devotional.

We’ll depart for the day’s adventure shortly after breakfast, with no real freetime to speak of.

Evenings

Maximizing your time out on your adventure, we’ll aim to arrive back to camp just before our 6 pm dinner. So you typically won’t have freetime to speak of between your adventure and the start of dinner.

There is typically about 1.5 hours of free time between dinner (served at 6 pm with most campers done eating by 6:45 pm) and campfire time which typically starts around 8:30 pm. We’ll have a guide watching the river for those that want to swim. Other common activities: volleyball, board games,  ultimate frisbee, and simply hanging out.

Living History Field Trips

Depending on how fast you eat dinner, there might be up to a 30 minute break between dinner and the start of campfire. Kids tend to collect around the tree swing, while parents tend to take their time eating and rest their legs in the dining area.

Breakfast is served at 8am, so there sometimes is a little bit of freetime in the morning depending on when you wake up and how long it takes you to pack your stuff up in the morning.

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.
