Advice for going to a Sleepaway Camp

Making a bunch of new friends at an overnight camp is a great experience, but so is building upon relationships that you already have. As you consider doing an individual youth camp we’d like to suggest that you also consider the following options:

  • multiple campers kayaking on the south fork of the american riverTalk 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’s youth group will being coming to 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 group 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 custom 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.

About Rock-N-Water Christian Camps

Rock-N-Water is a group of Christians who want to impact camp kids 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 bible camp programing ministry on biblical principles, and we use the help of nature, friendship, and challenge on our overnight camps in California to develop character. Learn more about Rock-N-Water Christian Camps.

Be it a kids camp in California, a youth retreat, sleep away camp, or a summer camp for kids, each year we review and improve our overnight summer camp programs so that they are not just an amazing and fun experience, but that they also provide great opportunities for positive life changing transformation. Our overnight summer camps in California are designed to be the best teen adventure camps around.

Plan your own Youth Camp

If these youth camps are not working for you, we’ve got a few ideas that might help:

  • Six people is all that it takes for you to be able to throw together your very own, fully customized, camp program and youth programs for your small group. So gather together some friends and/or family. You can pick and choose exactly what dates you want (space permitting of course), the adventures, and when you arrive and depart. We’ll take care of everything else, from the food to the campfire to the amazing staff that lead all of our teen programs. Learn more about creating your own trip.
  • Talk with your youth pastor about organizing a youth development trip. We’d love to talk with them about how easily we could help them put together a summer program for your whole youth group.
  • Looking for Bible camps near you? Let us be of service by putting you in contact with churches in your area that are coming here and might be open to having you join them.  Contact us about getting in contact with local youth groups in your area. Be sure to tell us what city you are from and a little about you so we can best connect you with local summer camps that you might be able to join.
  • Kids ages 8 and older can go whitewater rafting, but rafting is more optimal for kids ages 11 years old and older.

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 good intentioned, but overloaded, summer kids camp activities and sports can bombard a child 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.  

Instead of arts and crafts, we’ll explore 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 sleep away camp resulting in a summer experience unlike any other.

What’s the value of going to a summer camp?

Growth! Camp offers 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. 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.

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)
