Christian Camps for Families

Rock-N-Water has a great mix of adventure family vacations. Pick the trip and dates that work best for your family – we’ll take care of the rest.

Fully Customizable Vacations for your whole Family

We want the experience of your week at camp to be a perfect match with your family’s goals and expectations. Better yet, we want to exceed those expectations in ways that you might never have imagined possible.  Each of our vacations are fully customizable. You pick how many days you stay. What specific high adventures you want to do. And if you have a minimum of 5 people, you can even set the spiritual direction of the campfire devotionals that we’ll lead for you each night.

Contact us with your questions, customization ideas, or to check on specific date availability. We’d love to answer any questions you might have. Let us help you handcraft a family vacation that will best enable you and your kids (young or grown up) to grow closer together. While also growing in your personal relationship with our loving savior Jesus Christ.

Leave the arts and crafts of a traditional camp at home! Every Rock-N-Water summer family camp is built around the idea that spending time in the outdoors leads to growth. Fun and challenging outdoor adventures are a great way to help youth and adults to experience real personal growth in their Christian faith.

In addition to the amazing amounts of fun and outdoor adventures that each overnight camp contains, each trip also seeks to help develop your family relationships as well as create new friendships with the other individuals you meet while at camp. Each family friendly trip we offer includes action packed days of adventurous outdoor exploration with our summer staff as well as plenty of camp activities all day long. Learn more about how Rock-N-Water is different.

About Rock-N-Water

Rock-N-Water is a group of Christians who want to impact families and kids with the joy of God’s Living Word. We want them to come to know Jesus and pass on God’s love with excitement. We focus our Christian conferences, kids camps, and youth camps on biblical principles, and we use the help of nature, friendship, and challenge to develop character. Learn more about Rock-N-Water.

Where is Rock-N-Water Located?

We are located in Lotus, California, right on the side of the South Fork of the American River, about an hour East of Sacramento. Or an hour West of Lake Tahoe, depending on how you want to look at things. While we do have hot showers and flushing toilets, our location is rustic. We eat, sleep, and play outdoors and wouldn’t have it any other way. Many of our adventures are carried out off-campus within a one hour drive of camp.

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

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.
