Who is Rock-N-Water?

Rock-N-Water is a group of Christian leaders who want to safely lead people into the wonder of Gods creation challenging them them through adventures designed to help them grow personally, relationally, and Spiritually.We focus our Christian retreats on biblical principles, and we use the help of nature, friendship, and challenge on our overnight retreats to develop character. Our facilities are located in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains, about an hour east of Sacramento. We offer a wide variety of adventures year around to help you meet God in His creation. Learn more about Rock-N-Water Christian Camps.

What’s the value of a Christian camp experience?

Growth! Camp provides an opportunity for individuals young and old to get away from the constant distractions of everyday life. By breaking away from the routines, places, and the things that we find familiar, we are better situated to discover new things about ourselves, our friends, and our Heavenly Father. Learn more about Rock-N-Water’s Educational Objectives.

Adventure speaks of something new, something exciting and something very unknown. At Rock-N-Water, we love to draw everyone outside of the comforts of home and into the wild and unknown. We use our outdoor adventures to challenge campers to grow spiritually, emotionally and physically.

Experiences like clinging to the side of a cliff, rushing uncontrollably into crashing white water rapids, and being amazed by discovering unexpected sights around every corner all serve to help shift campers out of their comfort zones, and into their growth zones. It is when we are out of our comfort zone, that we begin the journey toward lasting personal growth and lasting spiritual development. Read more about the value of the outdoors.

What sets Rock-N-Water apart from other Christian Camps and retreat centers in California?

It’s our passion to not only get people into the outdoors, but to also help them to actually stop and experience the outdoors first hand while they are here. Many camps and church leaders with good intentions over program, over-schedule and bombard youth with so many amazing experiences that while they are sitting right in the middle of an amazing forest of God’s creation… they never realize it. We want to change that.  

Each of our adventures include time intentionally set aside to give campers an opportunity to just stop and think. Often times this takes the form of a quiet time that we’ll front load with a short devotional before spreading the group out for time of quiet reflection. At our Christian center, we keep our lodging rustic.  There is a complete outdoor kitchen and dining area which serves delicious food. Evenings are complete with a campfire experience and sleeping outside under the amazing night sky, or bring a tent if you want to take a breather from the elements around you. 

Our staff are not only trained to be amazing camp counselors, but also outdoor adventure guides. Our guides will not only lead you through your spiritual devotionals, but we will prepare your meals, and lead you through the rivers and rocks that we adventure upon.
