Work in the Outdoors

At Rock-N-Water our passion is to impact young people with the joy of God’s Living Word, so that they might come to know Jesus and pass on God’s love with excitement.

Our staff come to Rock-N-Water with the purpose of providing superb outdoor Christian youth ministry adventures in California. They use these adventures to help build friendships between campers and to help help impact youth with the love of Jesus Christ.

For many years Rock-N-Water has been blessed with such amazing applications that we typically stop accepting application for the coming year by late January. Please see our how to apply page for specific details about applying for one of our christian camping jobs.

Please also be aware that while some of our camp program positions, like our volunteer program, do not require any previous experience, our paid summer staff camp counselor program is highly impacted. Typically, only candidates with previous experience make it into a paid guide position their first year. You are of course welcome to apply for any position that excites you. But your time, and your chance of success, might be better invested applying for our summer volunteer program with the hope of returning the following year as a paid outdoor adventure guide.

The quality of camp programs is almost completely dependent on the quality of our staff. Thank you for being excited about being a part of the high quality staff that God has blessed us with.

More about Rock-N-Water

Founded in 1989, Rock-N-Water is made up of Christians who want to impact young people with the joy of God’s Living Word, so they might come to know Jesus and pass on God’s love with excitement. Our staff are highly committed Christians with excellent outdoor leadership skills carrying out their own individual ministries as adventure guides and living history guides.

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).

Our camp has two very different job opportunities available: Outdoor high adventure guides and living history field trip camp counselors.

Outdoor Adventure Camps

Our outdoor adventure camps are similar to a traditional resident camp, conference center, or summer camp experience, but with a significant focus on adventure travel. Getting the kids outside and experiencing full day adventures including whitewater rafting, outdoor rock climbing (on real rocks), exploring river canyons, and backpacking through the mountains. These Christian summer camp jobs look like a combination of a typical camp counselor position merged together with a high adventure outdoor guide job.

Living History Field Trips

We take the same high adventure focus of our summer camp season and modify it into an age appropriate high adventure field trip for elementary age students. Pretending to live through the middle of historical events, enables our camp staff to help students and parents to not just learn about history, but to experience it first hand. These Christian camp jobs are a blend of a typical camp counselor combined together with a docent.
