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)

Booking & Reservation Questions

We've tried to spell out who we are and why we think spending time in the outdoors is so valuable. But if you've still got questions, please don't hesitate to contact us we'd love to help.

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.

Couples Retreat for Youth Pastors

You always invest in your youth, now it’s time to invest in yourself and your marriage. We recognize the sometimes suffocating challenge of having both a healthy marriage and a prosperous youth ministry. We want this getaway to give your most important earthly relationship a breath of fresh air.

Join us at Rock-N-Water Christian Camps riverside camp in Coloma, California for an experience unlike any other.

youth-pastor-retreat-josh-griffinA Marriage Retreat unlike any other


Thursday night you’ll get settled in and get to meet with other youth ministry couples before bedding down for the night (Friday morning arrivals are an option if you live closer).


On Friday morning after breakfast get in some couple time alone (there are some great hikes from camp and locally) or join in on some fun and games with other youth ministry couples. We will have lunch before going whitewater rafting down a 10 mile stretch of the South Fork of the American River (Class III). Upon returning to camp, you’ll enjoy an elegant outdoor dinner followed by a time of worship and devotion as we gather around the campfire and focus on how to encourage and nurture your marriage relationships.


After another romantic night in your sleeping bags, we’ll have a hot breakfast waiting for you before we jump on the river for a second day of whitewater rafting on a different section of the river. We’ll have lunch alongside the river before making it back to camp where we will say farewell to our new-found friends.

This is not a joke. There is no catch.

First, this trip is a gift for those whose marriages are seasonally challenged by year round youth ministry. It is our hope that Rock-N-Water Christian Camps might be used to help strengthen your critically important relationship.

Secondly, this trip is an investment in your ministry. We hope that your time with us will inspire you to take your students out into the outdoors more often – maybe even to Rock-N-Water Christian Camps.
