Join Us for a Week or Weekend of Fun and Excitement
We provide the fun, the friends, the adventure, and challenges that open doors for positive change.
Rock-N-Water Christian Camps is located in Northern California and has a variety of youth summer camps specifically geared towards individuals looking to grow in their Christian faith through a sleepaway camp experience on their own or with a group of friends. In addition to the amazing amounts of fun and outdoor adventures that each of our teen summer camps contain, youth of all ages will find ample opportunity to make good friends with fellow campers in a small group setting as they experience the fun and challenge of a week together.
Remember the church camps you went to as a kid or teenager? For many of us, attending camp marked moments we had with God or our peers that were radically challenging and inspiring to us. We look back on the moments at camp, and remember a time where we really felt close with God or really connected with a friend who inspired us to follow Jesus. Our passion is to make the Christian summer camp experience accessible to everyone, not just those plugged into their local youth group. It is our goal, that all youth would have an opportunity to spend time at an overnight camp and spend full days adventuring in God’s great outdoors.
Rock-N-Water is a group of Christians who want to safely lead people into the wonder of God’s creation, challenging them through adventures designed to help them grow personally, relationally, and spiritually. We focus on biblical programming, and our summer camps for kids use the help of nature, friendship, and challenge to develop character.

Plan Your Own Specialty Camp
Making a bunch of new friends at a sleep away camp is a great experience. However, if our dates for individual camp or youth retreat don’t work for you, we would love for you to consider the other options available to you.
Talk to your Church’s youth pastor and see if they’d be interested in organizing a camp for your Church youth group to on one of Rock-N-Water’s Christian sleepaway summer camps in California.
If you live in California, there is a good chance that a local Church will be having their youth group retreat on one of our teenage Christian Camps this summer during their school break. Contact us and we can put you in contact with a local youth ministry that might have space for you. Then you’ll be able to continue building relationships with each other after you return home.
Consider getting a group of friends together for a personalized camp. It only takes a group of 6 people to be able to build your own specialized teen camps. Make it exactly the type of adventure camp you want it to be.
Getting to Rock-N-Water – Our retreat center is located in Northern California, about a 1 hour drive from Sacramento. Transportation instructions for parents of students attending individual camps at Rock-N-Water. We have many campers from the San Francisco Bay Area, Los Angeles and the surrounding parts of Southern California, as well as from across the United States travel to our California summer camp.
What sets Rock-N-Water apart?
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, summer camps can bombard a youth with so many amazing options; 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.
Instead of arts and crafts, we’ll spend a full day exploring hiking trails through beautiful river canyons. In place of a climbing wall, we’ll climb and conquer real rock walls. And instead of the standard water sports summer programs of overnight camps, we’ll go whitewater river rafting. Be it a camp for boys or a camp for girls, these high adventures make for a California overnight summer camp resulting in camp experience unlike any other.
What’s the value of going to a summer camp?
Growth! Our sleepaway camps in California offer individuals an opportunity 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.
What’s the value of outdoor adventures?
Adventures in the outdoors provide a natural platform for helping to strengthen individuals emotionally, physically, and spiritually. By shifting campers out of their comfort zones, further away from the places and things that they are familiar with they are able to learn and grow. Outdoor adventures provide countless opportunities for growth through challenging activities when we leave the protection of our everyday lives. Read more about the value of the outdoors.

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)
