Why come to the Family Retreat?

We set up our family retreats to be specifically catered to families. Historically, our camp has functioned primarily as a youth camp. However, in recent years, after many requests, we have been able to set aside a few weekends for families. During these weekends, everything is set up to accomodate family members of many different ages. We customize our adventures to meet the adventure levels of both 7 year olds and 80 year olds! Additionally, we are intentional about creating an environment where you can spend time together. For example, you will have a chance to spend time doing  family devotions. Secondly, families will have a chance to grow together as they face challenges. You will have a chance to cheer for each other as each individual faces their fears. 

Customize Your Family Vacation

We want your week at camp to be a perfect match with your family’s goals and expectations. Even more so, we want to exceed your expectations of a family camping experience.  Each of our vacations are fully customizable. You pick how many days you stay, including meals. We want you to pick the 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.

    Leave the arts and crafts of a traditional camp at home! Avoid the line at the climbing wall and go rock climbing on real California granite. 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 ton of fun. Above all, adventuring is a great way to help youth and adults to experience real personal growth. Growth occurs in their relationships and in their Christian faith. 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 creation. We want them to come to know Jesus and pass on God’s love with excitement to others. We focus our Christian conferences, kids camps, and youth camps on biblical principles. Our focus is to use 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.
