Frequently Asked Questions

What is the value of Camp?

One reason why camps are a place where students often make life changing decisions is that it is a place away from home. In addition, we have found that the longer and the more a student leaves their lifestyle at home, the more clearly they can see themselves — almost as if they are looking in from the outside. This doesn’t need to be an unpleasant experience. In fact, it can be naturally integrated into a refreshing adventure where students are mostly unaware of the limitations until their lifestyle is restored.

In order to minister to campers in this way, we have intentionally shaped Rock-N-Water to be completely different than what students experience at home. And though this is only one of our goals, we believe it is becoming an increasingly important experience for today’s youth. You may notice this philosophy behind some of our rules, preferences, and the way we share our camp. We anticipate that you will appreciate the effort and the effect – at least by the time you get back home. Thanks again for trusting us with your youth. (To those of you who will only visit us for a day or so, thank you for helping us contribute to an atmosphere that is more obviously productive in youth who are staying longer.)

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.
