We get wet ;-)
Some of our best trips have been ones when it rained. Unless safety is an issue, we probably will not cancel a trip due to inclement weather.
Preparing for Rain
If it looks like rain, then pack accordingly. Make sure that your rain gear is easy to access and not buried under the luggage of 15 other people. We have numerous covered areas under which we can find refuge for most of our activities, but plan on being outside and in the natural elements throughout your stay.
Playing in the rain
As a side note, we are aware that in general parents are becoming more protective and less interested in seeing their children experience the outdoors. We believe that it is critically important for students to experience what God has made first hand.
“For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities-his eternal power and divine nature-have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse.” Romans 1:20 NIV
Typical Weather Patterns
- April tends to be hit or miss for rain.
- May tends to be mostly dry.
- June through August we’ll typically have just ONE of rain, and that is typically less than a few hours. – Yes, it’s lovely in California.
Where to check the weather report?
Please check out https://www.rocknwater.com/resources/weather/ for current weather conditions. This weather is reported directly from camp in Lotus California. Also be aware that most commercial weather websites and weather apps tend to be grossly inaccurate for our region, reporting “current” temperatures as much as +/- 15°F off of actual temperatures. Seriously, we are not exaggerating.
