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. Aunalisa Mroos

    It was absolutely incredible. My guide, Sarah, was terrific and made the experience on the raft feel safe and way too much fun :)
    Rafting was definitely my favorite day that we had at camp. It was truly amazing.

  2. Sharon H

    It was amazing! Excellent leadership by the troop leader and team. All of the adventures (canyoneering, river rafting, rock climbing) were super fun. Will definitely come back!

  3. Brandon Mccullch

    Excellent. We had fun, felt safe, and bonded as a group. Guides were fun. Food was good.

  4. Larissa Campos

    Our youth group came to Rock-N-Water for the first time this summer and it was AMAZING!!! We were hesitant at first because it is so different than what we’re used to. In the end, our students not only had a LOT of fun but also grew in deeper and unexpected ways. It was more wonderful than we could have imagined! We’re coming back home with stronger connections with each other and with God. You will not be disappointed!!

  5. Isabella Rivera Gonzalez

    Rock n Water was definitely the best camp I’ve gone to. It was filled with so many people that cared for you meaning the guides. The activities brought our youth group closer as one and it was an adventure of a lifetime. Josh, Sara, Shelby, Joy, Anton, and Josiah were the best!

  6. Eudelle Orada

    Great! I feel you guys should offer more games to play while we have free time!!!

  7. Anonymous

    It was a fun and adventurous experience that helped bring our group closer together. Great for anyone looking for an outdoor adventure!

  8. Gina Giuliano

    My son ALWAYS has a wonderful experience at Rock-N-Water summer camp. The guides are passionate about being there and provide a great fun time to the campers. He enjoys all the activities, the food and the people. It’s a chance for him to get away from the technology and crowded city life for a week. It provides an opportunity for him to appreciate and connect with nature. We are very thankful for the Rock-N-Water camps and all the hard work that the director and staff put into making this a great experience for children.

  9. Larry Asselin

  15. Michaela Harris

    TREMENDOUS! My daughter, entering 9th grade, wishes she could have signed up for a second week and wants to return next year! She also said she felt a reconnection with God & nature (which was certainly my quiet personal prayer for her)! She went as an individual, not with a church group, not knowing anyone. She went reluctantly thinking she’d hate the outdoors and experience but came out of it loving the camping, the rafting, outdoors, food, the exercise, the basic, simple way of living! She really enjoyed meeting all the other kids and will stay in touch with a few of them! She also has more of an inner peace and confidence in herself and actually had conversation in the car ride back to the airport! She looks forward to coordinating next year and hoping for a possible two week experience. Thank you staff, volunteers and special kudos to Emily for the campfire nights and the memory writings of what God enjoyed you enjoying! Emily and that brief writing experience really tied the spiritual and life connection for her. A memory my daughter wrote was “God enjoyed me asking Him for safety b/c He could see my vulnerability and guided me to safety; He enjoyed me getting over my block”

  16. Amy Fontenot

    As always, the guides were 100 percent committed to delivering a full experience of adventure and personal development. The camp grounds are perfect and its such a beautiful spot on the river. The rafting this year especially was top notch. Both of my kids had a wonderful time and talk about plans for next year.

  17. Kailie Norris

    this year was my 3rd time going to rock n water for a week. Every time I go has been so amazing, leaving me with so many withdrawals after heading home. The staff, food, activities, and adventures are so much more wonderful than anyone can dream of. Each time I go to camp I am reminded of gods love for us due to the fact that we spend the whole time in his creation away from all distractions. I gave my life to Christ at rock n water my first year so I’d say it’s a pretty important place.

  18. Sarah Comfort

    Every day was amazing! Loved the leaders, the challenges, the cliff jumping, the friends made, and the Bible studies. I am hooked on the white water rafting now. This camp was beyond my expectations. Thank you!

  19. Nicole Hoffman

    I had to pick my daughter up a day early because she caught strep throat and double pink eye. So that was a bummer, but nobody’s fault. I was disappointed with the lack of camp photos. I couldn’t find my daughter’s rafting pictures on the Lync that I was sent. Lastly, I signed my daughter up for the High School camp. I didn’t want her with any Jr High kids. I was pretty disappointed that it ended up being so mixed. My daughter did have a decent time while she was there and her camp leader Sarah and very nice.

  20. Elizabeth Barton

    Rock-N-Water was probably the most helpful experience that I had been blessed with in a very long time. The people there were absolutely incredible. They were able to help with some of the spiritual problems that I had been going through at the time. My camp guide, Sarah, was wonderful. She was happy, blessed with God’s love, and drove the rest of her campers to do whatever they did to the best of their abilities. It was fun to see how she could use everyday things and turn them into fun as well as teach with them. Over all, camp Rock-N-Water is some place that I pray I will be spending many years attending in the future.

  21. Annika Hui

    I had a really great time and I connected with the kids in my group immediately. It’s an experience I want to have again. Thank you.

  22. Savannah Martinez

    I had a blast at Rock n’ water for my first year! It was by far the best week of my life!

  23. Nathaniel James

    Was incredibly fun and all the staff were very kind and helping when I, and another member of my group were injured

  24. Trevor Lind

    My son had a blast! This was his second year and he loves this camp. He always makes good friends and his group leader, Reed, was awesome!
