Exploring the past to collect lessons for the heart.

Rock-N-Water offers a variety of field trip ideas. Staff will take your students on living history programs that are unforgettable fun and educational tours.  Tours and adventures will guide students study of history as it comes alive! Children ages 8, 9, 10, and 11 pretend to travel back in time where they learn about California’s history by living and participating in everyday activities of the 1800s.

Experiential learning through educational travel isn’t just a great way to study the past. It is also a highly effective tool for teaching spiritual lessons at each of the different destinations a tour explores. On each student travel experience, our staff become characters from the past such as pioneers, gold miners, immigrants, or Native American Indians. We then weave the joy and love of God’s living Word into every activity, including having fun along the way!

Get Outside with our student and youth travel trips

We are an indoor society. We isolate ourselves inside of our homes, cars, schools, and places of work. When we do venture outside, we quickly retreat to the safety and security of our temperature controlled home. Quickly fleeing from the world around us.

We want to help kids and their parents discover the beauty of the outdoors. To understand how spending time in the outdoors can have lasting impacts on their mental, physical, and emotional health. We customize each of the group tours to help students experience first hand the joy of spending time in the outdoors.

Please contact us if you have any questions. We would love to help your reserve a space for your class in the coming season.

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)
