School Field Trips through California’s Living History

Exploring the past to collect lessons for the heart.

Rock-N-Water offers a variety of living history programs to take your class on unforgettable educational tours and adventures where students study history that’s alive! In our 49er Fun School Field Trips 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders pretend to go back in time where they learn about California’s history, by living and partaking in the everyday activities of the past.

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 trip, 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!

Living history educational travel field trips

We offer exciting experiential learning field trips for 3rd-5th grade educational student tours where teachers, students, and parents experience history coming alive.

  • 49er Fun 4th Grade Field Trips – Primarily designed for 4th grade classes, these living history field trips will bring to life California history and specifically the Gold Rush of 1849 that they will be studying in the classroom.
    • The Greenhorn – A day trip option for first time schools that are not yet ready for the full overnight experience.
    • The Mother Lode – Overnight 4th grade field trip with an even balance between visiting historical sites and hands on learning.
    • The Prospector – Overnight 4th grade living history experience with a heavier focus on hands-on activities and experiential learning.
    • The Double Jack – A two day two night adventure for teachers, schools, and students who agree that 24 hours is just not enough.
  • Tour Group Field Trips – For those traveling longer distances, or who want someone else to take care of all the transportation and planning logistics. We have partnered with Christian tour companies to make it easier to coordinate taking a trip up to Northern California to experience the Gold Rush through our 49er Fun program. They can take care of coordinating multiple reservation tours, your airline flights, and your overall itineraries for minimal fees.

Who is Rock-N-Water?

Rock-N-Water is a group of Christians whose mission is 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. We focus our traveling experience field trips on biblical principles, and we use the help of inspiring time in nature, friendship, and challenge to develop character.

Get Outside

We are an indoor society. We walk from our house into our car (often without ever going outside), to drive to school, where we spend most of our time inside, with the occasional fleeting activity spent walking from one classroom to the next.  Then we quickly retreat to the safety and security of our temperature controlled home, and away from the world around us.

We want to help kids and their parents meet the beauty of the outdoors  and the cultural differences of time spent in the outdoors of the places we have visited during the year. We customize each of the service tours we offer to be the best deal for helping to build within your students a joy of spending time in 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)
