A Two Day Adventure Trip
2 adventures, 5 meals, 2 nights
Two days of adventure, white water and sun. We’ll spend 2 days of Class III river rafting on the South Fork of the American River. On one day we will adventure on the Lower section, leaving after enjoying lunch in camp. On the other day we will explore the Upper section of the river starting first thing in the morning. We will have lunch on the side of the river and finish at our riverfront campground in the afternoon. High school groups can upgrade to rafting on the Middle Fork of the American River class IV California rafting on the Ruck-A-Chuck for an additional $25/person per day.
Each day on our adventures, we’ll experience the beauty and strength of the American River that God has made. We’ll challenge ourselves physically, to grow in our Christian faith and build lasting teamwork skills. Among other things your group will take part in quiet times, campfires, exploring and rafting.

Loved the adventures and the leadership of the young adult staff!
Shawna Stephenson –
We absolutely loved every bit of it! The staff was so friendly and helpful. The first thing my son said when we got into the car for the ride home was “I am definitely coming back next year”.
Highly recommend. We had an awesome family weekend rock climbing and white water rafting. The guides were great! We can’t wait to go back.
Mike Gregory –
My experience was great–what a challenge! I had a revelation that there should be a praying chapel at the camp. It could be just a tent with some benches or something with a cross and artificial candles inside with times scheduled for prayer for families who really need it with a Pastor or friend.

I enjoyed getting to know the guides and the staff. However when you are having a young adult group come to your camp. Don’t do the childish stuff like the toilet paper joke or whatever. It’s not really funny it’s just dumb. Other than that, just be kind and considerate of others and their emotions in the moment. If there a person who is scared to death of water maybe don’t jump on the raft right next to next to them 5 times before jumping into the water.

Rock n water was great. The guides were both professional, fun, and spiritual. The property had lots to offer for activities and for good times with Jesus. We happily recommend this for churches.

It was a great experience! We rarely get to spend a weekend alone and to be able to do that and then be surrounded by other youth ministry couples that just understood what we go through was incredible.
Robert Hudson –
Rock-N-Water was one of the best two-day camp experiences I’ve ever been a part of. My wife and I had the best time hanging with other youth leaders, spending time together and experiencing the beauty of Creation. The river was awesome. We will definitely be coming back!

This trip was one of my favorite trips of all time. It was refreshing for my marriage to reconnect with my wife and refreshing for my soul to breathe in the Lords creation and spend time with Him. Thank you for what you do!

Very friendly staff. Good food that was prepared throughout the day. The campground spot walk to the eating area was near, which I liked. The camp area was clean. The instructor for the raft was friendly and knowledgeable about the instructions when rafting.

It was great going out doors camping and enjoying the great outdoors that God gave us. From hiking to white water rafting to sleeping under the stars nothing gets better than that.

Brian Schaefer –
this was a wonderful experience.When we arrived we were a little nervous as we are not avid tent campers. we were welcomed and our nervousness quickly turned to excitement. The staff was awesome including Anna, Stewart(guide on lower) and Joe (guide on upper). my wife and two teenagers loved the camp and we are planning for next year return trip. Food was good but could be kicked up a notch for the adults.
Jessica Jamieson –
I loved it! hoping to come back and volunteer next year
Rosa Bonilla –
great crew, awesome rafting experience, good food, even my unchurched son was happy with the weekend as he felt he was not forced to participate in any activity and was allowed the space he desired, he liked the people, the staff at r-n-w is one of a kind…the Asselin family was kind and loving, Ellen was a great leader and made us feel safe in the river with her calm yet strong leadership, Zecgariah was very interactive during day 1 of our rafting trip, I enjoyed not knowing anyone else except my family members at the beginning and getting to know awesome people and kids….we will definitely share r-n-w with friends and family. thank you!
Wendy Sullivan –
Rock and Water was so much fun! The staff was so kind and welcoming! We definitely recommend going!
Nick Schmidt –
Our experience was awesome, we didn’t know what to expect but it was such a wonderful experience. We went home bragging about the food, fellowship, the staff, white water rafting . We are even thinking about returning back for either a day of rafting or the couples retreat. I think what Craig lomax and the staff is fantastic, they worked in unity the entire time. Thank you for such a wonderful time and God bless
Thomas Chen –
We had a really good experience with Rock-N-Water for the youth pastors couples retreat. We felt very well taken care of and appreciated. Thank you so much for offering such a wonderful opportunity for us to spend with our spouse in God’s creation. The rafting was super fun and a very bonding experience with the other couples. The campfire sharing was nice and bonding as well. So were the activities and games. It was all well organized and ran smoothly. It was also a great opportunity to learn about Rock-N-Water and the great ministry you have. This was such a great way to build a great relationship between pastors and Rock-N-Water. This weekend achieved a lot of good goals – for us to enjoy time with our spouse, with other couples, in God’s nature, to have fun camping and rafting, and for us to get to know the ministry and opportunities of Rock-N-Water. We really appreciate Craig and the staff for serving us that weekend. Thank you!

Super awesome time. My wife and I were about to enter the most challenging season in our collective time in ministry. This retreat was just what we needed to tighten our bond to each other and the Holy Spirit. I will always remember to seek God in the setting of His creation as often as possible.
Owen Lee –
It was a great experience and I NOW will plan to have a HS Sr. graduation trip in the years to come Starting in 2017. I have already mentioned this trip to a few students and they are excited.
Michael Davidson –
We loved it. We were greatly impressed with the love and care we received from the staff and how much fun our experience was.
