A Five Day Adventure Camp – Amazing relationship building time while your group is secluded in God’s creation makes this trip our favorite Christian summer camp. We’ll spend four days backpacking, canyoneering, and rock climbing in the backcountry of the Sierras of California. Then we’ll celebrate on the fifth day with Class IV white water rafting in California on the Middle Fork of the American River. 

While out in the backcountry, we’ll explore God’s playground, and challenge ourselves to grow in our Christian faith through quiet times, campfires, climbing, waterslides, and rappelling off a 90ft. cliff. We believe this trip is simply… Unbeatable!

About Rock-N-Water

Rock-N-Water is a group of Christians who want to impact campers of all ages with the joy of God’s Living Word. Our desire is that you might come to know the joy of our loving Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and to pass on God’s love to others with excitement. We focus our programs on biblical principles, and use the help of nature, friendship, and adventurous outdoor challenges to develop eternal transformational change.

Located an hour East of Sacramento in the Sierra Nevada Foothills of California, our staff travel from across the United States to minister to your students. Cross trained as camp counselors, youth ministers, and high adventure guides, they positively transform the lives of youth and adults alike. Our staff savor the opportunity to be the hands and feet of Jesus in your students’ lives.

Every Rock-N-Water trip is built around the idea that spending time in the outdoors, through fun and challenging adventures, is a great way to help youth and adults to experience real personal growth in their Christian faith. Each camp includes full action packed days of adventurous outdoor exploration with our summer counselors. And each adventure includes time intentionally set aside in the middle of each day to give you ample opportunity to just stop, and think, and pray. At night we gather together around the campfire for a time of worship and a more indepth biblical devotional.

    What an amazing summer camp experience! I would recommend that any church group looking to step out of the norm and have an great adventure should check out Rock N Water. Great staff, fun outdoor activity, a focus on God in everything you do…this is a great camp.

  10. Micah Steffenauer

    Rock-N-Water was an amazing experience for me. I enjoyed the in-camp experience. Every staff member I met was happy and cool in there own way, and they all had joyfulness in almost everything they did. I love that Rock-N-Water is a Christan camp. And I loved the back country and all the guides. The guides are all pretty well trained and are good about safety, But the guides love to have fun and make it a fun experience for the camper. I had an Amazing turning point while I was here and am seeking God more then I have ever have. I would definitely come back to Rock-N-Water. Micah

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)

Who we are

We are a group of Christians who want to safely lead people into the wonder of God’s creation, challenging them through adventures designed to help them grow personally, relationally, and spiritually.   We focus our program on biblical principles, and we use the help of nature, friendship, and challenge to develop character.
