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.

  1. Chris

    EXCELLENT camp! Great activities, awesome leaders, delicious food. Can’t recommend Rock-N-Water enough.

  2. Laake Gennai

    Outstanding experience on the American River! You get the full scope of camping, without any of the negative distractions like drugs or alcohol use at camp.
    This outfit is the real deal–very simply will show you a good, clean, fun good time in Coloma, CA.
    Thank you for being a solid option.

    By the way the dinners are the BEST. The salsa is outstanding.

  3. Trevor Lind

    Trevor had a blast again this summer! He made friends, met up with an old friend and totally connected with his camp leader. The weather was perfect, the water and activities were perfect and last, he said the food was great! Thanks again to all the staff and volunteers at Rock-N-Water for making this another fun and amazing summer camp experience for Trevor. Hopefully, he’ll be able to come again next summer.

    Amazing and fun great staff

  6. Micheal Parker

    The boys love the rafting at Rock and Water Camp. It is their favorite part. However, our group was surprised that our boys were lead by female leaders for the week. I personally would prefer male youth leaders. My son said he thought it was weird that he had a female leader as well. The problem I see with this is that these boys are encountering a sensitive period in life of dating and relationships with women. Issues with hormones and purity. I was hoping for a time for my son to grow and ask serious questions about dating or problems he’s encountering. This would not happen with a woman counselor and it actually shouldn’t because that would be inappropriate. I am a youth leader myself and we have a policy that of same sex leaders for our group. We love Rock and Water but I was surprised that this happened.

  7. Madeline Days

    It was so much fun. I met new friends and the counselors were great. You get to enjoy the beauty of the nature and see things you would never think were there. It felt like a second home to me. Not to mention, the food was amazing, too.

  8. Luke and Regan Arata

    The kids loved their experience. My sons second time and my daughters first time. The only criticism is that my daughter is a middle schooler and was placed with a High school group. The language used by this particular group of high school campers was shocking to my 12 year old. In all she had a great time and has learned that there are always going to be people you don’t particularly agree with their actions. It was a good life lesson. The guides and counselors are phenomenal. My kids said the food was really good! They’ll be back next year. Thank you for providing such a great camp.

  9. Kohl Viega

    Kohl had a great experience at camp. He was most impressed by his counselor Josh. Thank you!

  10. Chase Johnson

    So fun!

  11. William Smith

    Great! Can’t wait to go next year! Loved the rock climbing day the most. Really enjoyed the rafting day as well. Personally liked the Evergreen canyon better than the ladybug canyon.

  12. Faith Haley

    It was trying phisically just because I’m not active very much. Spirtually it was very inspiring. Over all I had an amazing experience!

  13. Samuel Fernandez

    This was a pretty spicy trip, my guy. Overall, I’d say it was a pretty fresh experience. Really living the Christian lifestyle, if ya know what I mean. Rafting, rock climbing, hiking, it was all pretty swagtastic, ya feel me?

  14. Garrett Carlson

    Really fun. Counselors and inviting – adventures we were planned out and I felt safe the entire time.

    One thing all of my friends would agree on is that the water is cold.

  15. Emily

    My child had an excellent second year at camp! Can’t wait for next year!

  16. Chris

    What a fantastic camp! Beautiful location, so much of the great outdoors, excellent counselors and staff, delicious food–amazing place!

  17. Seraphin Lane

    Amazing! Everything is amazing! The guides are awesome! It’s really nice to wake up in the morning to the sound of the water running loudly. I am definitely going back.

  18. Zachary Breeding

    Best camp ever!

  19. Annika Hui

    I loved going canyoneering with rock n water. it’s the best Christian camp there is to go to. the counselors are great and so fun to be around. you share a bond with them especially if you go there multiple times. you make life long friends with other campers there. great camp!!!

  20. Cade Clifford

    This camp was so much fun! I loved the river rafting. Everyone was so nice & I made a lot of friends. I will definitely be back next year!

  21. Brandon Sarratt

    I had an amazing time and can’t wait to return

  22. Benjamin Cooper

    There wasn’t a single day that I didn’t like. Every day had an amazing and fun adventure. 10/10

  23. Lily

    Rock n water was such a fun camp! I made lots of new friends, had fun experiences, and the food was really good! All of the counselors are very nice, and all the activities were well organized. Sleeping outside was really fun, and you can really see the stars! if you wake up early enough, you can see the sunrise! I still keep in contact with the people i met and it was an overall amazing experience 10/10 would recommend. i especially loved the water rafting and will be back next year.

  24. Kalyssa Safley

    I had a great experience at this camp! The food was great and the adventures were amazing. The cooks had dairy-free options for me in the kitchen so I would have something to eat instead of the food with cheese or dairy in and the adventures stretched me to try new things and overcome fear while trying those things. My favorite adventure was the canyoneering because you could climb around on rocks, but also cool off in the water. Plus, the areas we went to were pretty. One thing I wish was that there was more worship. I connect the best with God through music and we only sang two songs around the campfire usually and after going to more traditional summer camps I was expecting to have more worship and messages. Finally, one of the other things that I loved the most about my camp was the guides. They were so inclusive and kind to me, plus you could tell that they loved Jesus and wanted to see you succeed in everything you were doing.

  25. Luke Arata

    The outdoor experience was great, the camp leaders were nice and made you feel at home, and the equipment is very safe. The thing I disliked the most was the team-building exercises on day 1. They weren’t very fun and often frustrating. There were also 2 1/2 days of an activity (canyoneering) and it got old. Billygoat canyon is NOT a good place to go canyoneering.

  26. Katelyn Crowley

    I love Rock-N-Water! I’ve gotten to go twice now with my cousin’s youth group, and it was amazing! It was really disappointing for me when they didn’t go back last summer. I love the outdoors, and adventures that we get to go on are so much fun, especially the white water rafting. I’m hoping I get to go again!
