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 is Rock-N-Water?

Rock-N-Water is a group of Christians who want to impact 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 programs on biblical principles, and we use the help of nature, friendship, and challenge on our overnight camps 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 that all center around getting outdoors into God’s 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.

Adventures in the outdoors provide a natural platform for helping to strengthen emotional, physical, and spiritual health. By shifting campers out of their comfort zones, further away from the places and things that they are familiar with. Outdoor adventures provide countless opportunities for growth through challenging activities and the often temporarily uncomfortable situations we experience when we leave the protection of our everyday lives.

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 foundational spiritual development. Read more about the value of the outdoors.

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

It’s our passion to not only get youth into the outdoors, but to also help them to actually stop and experience the outdoors first hand while they are here. Too often good intentioned, but overloaded, christian camp activity and event programing can bombard campers 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.

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 also lead you upon the rivers and rocks that we adventure upon.
