Class III Backpacking Trips
Explore God’s Creation while Backpacking and Rafting Class III Rapids
A Five Day Adventure Camp – Amazing relationship building time while your group is secluded in God’s creation makes this trip our favorite Christian summer camp. We’ll spend four days backpacking, canyoneering, and rock climbing in the backcountry of the Sierras of California. Then we’ll celebrate on the fifth day with Class III river rafting on the South Fork of the American River.
While out in the backcountry, we’ll explore God’s playground, and challenge ourselves to grow in our Christian faith through quiet times, campfires, climbing, waterslides, and rappelling off a 90ft. cliff. We believe this trip is simply… Unbeatable!
We take care of the details
Backpacking with a youth group in God’s creation is an amazing ministry opportunity, but it can also be a logistical headache. At Rock-N-Water we will take care of all those planning and implementation details so that you can focus on the things that matter most, developing positive relationships with your students, and helping direct them to grow in their Christian journey.
We provide all the backpacking related gear that your students might not have (including backpacking backpacks, tents, cooking equipment, rock climbing gear…), so that preparing for a backpacking trip is as simple as preparing to take your kids to any normal summer camp.
- You can add dinner, campfire, and camping to depart instead on Saturday by 8 AM with breakfast on the road for just $20/person.
- T-shirts can be ordered for the whole group at $10/person. You can lead campfire and other teaching opportunities yourself, combine your teaching efforts with those of our staff, or just ask us to handle it all for you – at no additional charge.
- High School groups can bump it up to Class IV rafting with our Backpacker Paluza Chuck.
Check out our Backpacker Paluza Synopsis for more details.
We limit this trip to just one group per week, so backpacking dates disappear quickly.
