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’s summer camps for middle school students are located in Northern California, a short one hour drive from Sacramento and Lake Tahoe. We have a variety of youth 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 junior high and middle school school summer camps contain, youth of all ages will find ample opportunity to make good friends with fellow campers as they experience the fun challenges of the week together.

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. So as you consider doing an individual youth camp we’d like to suggest that you also consider the following options:
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 camps.
If you live in California, there is a good chance that a local Church’s youth group will being coming to Rock-N-Water Christian Camps this summer. Contact us and we can put you in contact with a local youth group that might have space for you, and that you can continue building relationships with after you come back 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 a custom youth camp that will be exactly the adventures and length that you want it to be.
Put away your video game, and step out into the great outdoors and learn hands on skills including problem solving.

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. 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 middle school or junior high school programs. Learn more about creating your own trip.
Talk your youth pastor into organizing a trip. We’d love to talk with them about how easily we could help them put together a trip for their whole youth group.
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 the optimal group.

Our Jr High and Middle School camps are for students in grades: 6th, 7th, and 8th grade.

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)
