A Christian two night California living history field trip

2 adventures, 5 meals, 2 nights

Two nights gives us the time needed to experience even more of the hands on experiential learning activities that teachers have come to expect from our 49er Fun program, while adding in a little more time to rest, play, and grow in our Christian faith.

We meet each other at Gold Bug Park & Mine in Placerville California where you’ll meet our living history guides who will start to transport you back to 1854, just after the height of the California gold rush. While we are there we will explore some restored gold mines as we learn about mining, play some games, and get a feel for the lay of the land.

Next we’ll stop of at Marshall Gold Discovery State Historic Park. While we are there we will see the location where James Marshall first pulled gold out of the river back on January 24th, 1848, examine a replica of Sutter’s Mill, see mining equipment from the era, and take a few minutes in the surrounding hills for a short quiet time alone with God.

Then it’s on to our claim on the side of the South Fork of the American River (just a few miles downstream of Coloma), where you’ll set up your shelters for the night before setting in for a great dinner. After dinner an old time band will join us for a time of dancing and singing, followed by a time of worship and learning as one of your guides shares a devotional story with you about their experiences in the gold rush and how they have grown as a Christian and drawn closer to God.

After a great breakfast we’ll get our hands dirty for a full day of experiencing what it was like to live in the California Gold Rush as we go gold panning right out of the American River, make rope and bead necklaces, learn how the Maidu Indians lived off the land, make candles, play some old fashioned outdoor games, make (and eat) tortillas and butter in the kitchen, make a leather gold pouch, and so many more things that this run on sentence could get ridiculously long. Somewhere in the middle of it all we’ll take a short quiet time devotional hike, and give you a little free time to play and laugh with your students.

For the second night of campfire, it’s a more old fashioned campfire as you might have experienced traveling over on the wagon train, with everyone contributing a little here and there. Our staff has plenty of skits, songs, and stories to keep the campfire going, but you’ll find it an even more meaningful of an experience if your kids or parents come ready to share a 1 to 5 minute skit, song, poem, story, or some other display of talent. We should have a little time during the second day for last minute preparations (and we’ll have a few ideas ready to offer if you need them).

The 3rd morning we’ll pack up our shelters, have breakfast, and gather together for some last thoughts before waving goodbye.

    We had an excellent trip! I would definitely refer friends.

    The hosts were fun, energetic and helped teach us many new things. The food was perfect!
    It was very beautiful that our Christian faith was woven into the tapestry of camp from start to finish. I think even a person who came to camp lukewarm would leave on fire for the Lord or if not at least curious enough to want to know him more intimately.
    Thank you for a memorable experience.

    Hi Rock-n-Water,
    My class and chaperones enjoyed the trip so very much! All activities were appreciated and everyone had a grand time. The candle making activity ran out of time so the kids’ candles were quite thin, but they did enjoy doing what there was time for on that day. I love the Job’s tears and Bible stories relayed while making the bracelets. My hardest part of each trip is setting up and taking down our camp area. If there was 30 minutes extra for set up and take down, that would be helpful. But maybe I’m the only one who feels that way and am just slow! It isn’t a huge deal, just a suggestion.
    I hope you all know how much I have enjoyed being a part of the camp for 14 years and will miss being involved.
    God bless you all and you will be in my prayers.

    Amazing! Food was excellent, programming was super fun.

    Only suggestion is to upgrade the shower facilities- or maybe just clean more frequently.
    The experience chamber was cute and got the job done 😉

    Your staff, especially Junior, were so sweet and very enthusiastic. Even stayed in character the entire time!

    Thank you for providing such a special experience for our 3rd graders.

    I would have appreciated a bit more respect for the adults on the trip. This may have been more of an issue with our school representative vs. the actual Rock and Water staff, but it would have been nice to know when we could expect breaks and when the program would end/begin. Waiting around on the last day was frustrating.

    It would have also been nice to be notified that our group would be merging with another school. Our leadership was not informed of this before hand.

    Also, breaking up the kids into groups right at the start for the entire 3 days without any sort of heads up was a bit unnecessary. I feel these groups should have been formed in their class ahead of time.

    The experience over all was fantastic. The kids had a great time exploring the mines and gold country. The full day at camp was loaded with activities that kept the kids busy. The kids also had a great time learning what it was like to live in the 1800s. The group leaders were great (we had Ma and Sheamus who were excellent). The kids enjoyed listening to their stories and lessons. We were blessed with great weather. The only negatives were the mosquitoes and the lack of knowledge of what was needed for the upcoming hikes (water need, shoe need, how long they would be, etc).

    Fantastic! The kids had a blast and so did the parents. It was great that they were entertained and educated the entire time. We LOVED the music guys the first night, the food was great and the activities were fun. It was neat how well Emma worked in bible stories and God related things to everything we did.
    Thank you to the staff for all their hard work.

    My son, class and I absolutely loved every minute of this trip!! All of those who work for Rock-N-Water were kind, knowledgeable, fun and thoughtful. I am a first year 4th grade teacher and I am already looking forward to next year!

    There was rain and hail on our first day but as we were promised – the kids still had a blast and we were well taken care of! It was 38 degrees that first night and Ma gave us great tips on staying warm. We did everything she suggested and we were cozy all night and into the next day. What a wonderful blessing to have the men and women who work at Rock-N-Water care so much for the people who visit.

    From the moment we arrived to the moment we left we enjoyed ourselves, learned so much and wanted for nothing else!

    What an experience! 🙂

    This was my second year to go as a parent. The first was in 2015. Both times I enjoyed myself I was able to experience new adventures with each of my sons. I enjoyed the way each staff member stayed in character. It is amazing how cooperative the students get when it comes to clean up when they are at camp.then anywhere else. You see them working together with other students they don’t know and they are having a blast. My children still talk about camp and other students I’m around talk about the experience they had. It is a wonderfully positive experience that includes a side of something educational. They are learning and having fun and eating well. Thank you. I would like to one day try the other camps you have available, like the white water and family camp.

    Everything about this trip was amazing, from the beautiful setting to the entertaining, educational programming. The food was amazing and the staff was extremely friendly. We had a number of folks in our group that had never tent camped before and were very apprehensive but after this experience they have become excited about “rustic” camping. I would highly recommend Rock-N-Water

    I’ve been coming to Rock ‘n Water with my 4th grade class for 11 years. This is the absolute highlight of the year for our 4th graders. They always think I am exaggerating about what a great trip it is, but then we go and they understand. It is so well organized, so entertaining, not to mention the fact that it has a wonderful spiritual emphasis. My repeat parents are always eager to go again, and I look forward to it every year!

    The food was great. The bathroom facilities were surpringly nice and convenient. The staff were helpful, enthusiastic, and very knowledgeable. My only “creative criticism” would be to consider slowing down the pace of the activities. While everything was fun and informative, the schedule was pretty jam-packed. I’m sure other groups might have found it just right – or even too slow! – but the kids and adults in our group got pretty overwhelmed near the end of both days.

    Rock-N-Water is an outstanding experience for my students both those who have experienced tent camping and definitely great for those who have not.
    This program is Christ centered, organized, and fun for child and adult alike. I encourage all my students and parents to attend.

    Rock-N-Water is a field trip that will be remembered for years to come. I would recommend any 4th grade teacher to take their students to Rock-N-Water, where the students will learn about California history and that God is Great than gold.

    Well organized, focused on valuing each individual as a child of God, fun, moderately educational. Great food. My memory is that the “characters”of the leaders used to be more developed and consistent. I miss that, but new attendees are happy with the leaders they do meet. Always a great time and growth opportunity for our students.

    Your camp is amazing!!!! So much fun for the whole group. We had MJ as our leader and she was polite, knowledgeable and fun to be around. She treated the adults with respect and was kind to the kids. The food was great and the facilities better than expected. The activities were perfect and I was surprised that we got to do so much in such a short time, the kids had a blast and we all learned so much. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!
    My only thoughts for improvement would be to have a little free time built into the day so the grown ups have some down time and the kids can run and play with their friends. Also if there is a way for the camp staff to come around at 10pm to enforce the curfew. Otherwise it was an amazing experience and one I would highly recommend. Please give MJ a special recognition…as well as her co-workers, for such young people they are amazing.

    Thumbs up for how hard the staff worked to keep everything on track. Perhaps there was too much crammed into a small amount of time? The hikes were nice but there was no down time at all so it felt a bit frantic. The kids get recess at school, it would have been nice to allow them and the parents a few minutes to relax especially on the first day once we arrived at camp.

    We had an amazing time this past few days. So many fun activities, guides were amazing, food was yummy. We loved the two fellows who did the live entertainment. Everything A+. My only concern was that during our hike to the river, the guide (Jr.) & six children walked right past, almost stepping on, a small rattle snake that was coiled up in the middle of the trail!! A child noticed the snake! The guides mentioned never seeing a snake on the trails but they should have been more aware. Thank God for looking out for the youngin’s that day!!
    Other than the snake, we had an amazing time. THANK YOU!!

    I really enjoyed the entire, overall experience. The activities were relevant and interesting. The kids all commented how much they enjoyed their time at the camp. I found that the staff was extremely helpful and worked well with the students. The setting felt safe and was great for camping. Knowing that this was a safe and caring environment for the students was a great help!
    I only have a couple suggestions. While I did appreciate the Christian atmosphere (being a Christian school of course), I would’ve also liked the students to hear more history as well as the Christian metaphors and parallels. Also, this may have been miscommunication on my part but the food didn’t always meet my students’ needs. Supper and lunch were fine but the breakfast didn’t have enough choices for my more limited students who needed more vegetarian options (as I said though – that may have been miscommunication on my part.

    Thank you for a wonderful time! I’ve been talking about to all my teacher friends and letting them know it was a great educational experience. We look forward to going again next year!

    My daughter and I had a good time for the most part, and were happy with the facilities and the accommodation of special diet needs. One thing that caused us some discomfort however, was how some of the songs and skits made light of animal cruelty (dog/cat sausages, burning chicken’s legs, rabbits chased for stew). People laughed but we found it unfunny for Christians to normalize violence toward animals. My daughter also asked to duck out of the leather trinket-making activity because she knows the unnecessary cruelty behind leather. I understand the whole theme of your camp to be experiencing life in the past, but the reality is we are in 2016, and we have better options. I try very hard to teach my child to honor God by treating the vulnerable with mercy, compassion, and respect – God’s animal creation included.

    The experience was good for kids and adults alike. I think it is critical that camp staff continues to encourage/require parents and adults to participate in activities and games. It makes it a fun experience for all. The counselors were great.
    The silly songs and skits are awesome and we should keep those in but also…One thing I would like to see more of is the worship/devotional times at the campfires. We only sang 1 or two songs and on top of that, they weren’t songs the kids really knew.
    Thanks for all your hard work.
    Food was great, too.

    It was great time for us in the 3days camp. Both kids and parents enjoyed every moment during the camp. I really want to recommend this camp to all my friends and families.

    It was wonderful! The staff was amazing! The food was good, and hearty to keep us going. The entertainment was fun, and as my son said, even the crafts were fun! (We’re not crafty people) It was such a positive experience that my son didn’t want to leave and swears he will work there one day.
    Thank you so much for a memorable time. One of my favorite activities was beading in the tee pee and listening to the story of Job. My son’s was panning for gold.

    Thanks,
    Jennifer Davis

    I Enjoyed your camp but I’m not that religious anymore , I have a hard time with that. Other than that you are spot on with all of the things that you do with the kids

    We visited for a Double Jack California history program. The food was excellent. The staff was hospitable, knowledgeable, and fun. The program was incredibly well designed and delighted all the children in our group. Extra props to Anna, our guide! She was top-notch!

    Attended a school field with my daughter and had a great time. Was able to learn a great deal of gold mining history and remain faith based throughout the whole experience.

    I visited with my son’s class for a overnight field trip experience. We have our postcard that was sent and still reminisce about the great time we had at Rock -N-Water. The tasty food, the fun camp fires,the many activities, our experience on the river. This field trip is an incredible educational journey into our states history.

    Every year has been great for the 11 plus years I have visited. Consistency is one of your strengths! Every year, my student’s parents are pleased, and tell me that they have a great time, too.

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

Rock-N-Water is a group of Christians who want 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 program on biblical principals, and we use the help of nature, friendship, and challenge to develop character.
