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 where they can build friendships with youth and help impact campers with the love of Jesus Christ.
While working towards this goal, our staff often have a great time themselves. As they grow closer to God, grow as Christians, develop lifetime friendships, grow stronger muscles, enjoy all our camp activities, and discover amazing tans. But to them these other things are just a byproduct of their passion to be used by God in the lives of others. If you have a passion to be used by God as a positive role model, along with a passion for adventures in the outdoors, then Rock-N-Water may be a good place for you.

More information about employment opportunities
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. See how to apply for specific details.
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.
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)
