An overnight learning experience for 4th grade students of Christian Schools

1 adventures, 3 meals, 1 nights

Our more hands on 49er Fun living history campout. We meet each other at Gold Bug Park in Placerville California where you’ll meet our Christian 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. Before we leave the mines we’ll 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 jumping into some hands on learning experiences of what life was like back in the California Gold Rush. We’ll make candles, play some old fashioned outdoor games, and make (and eat) tortillas and butter in the kitchen. Soon it’s time for dinner, but don’t worry, we’ve got lots of time tomorrow to play and experience these fun activities before we wave goodbye.

After a great 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 continue our first hand learning experiences as we go gold panning right out of the American River, make rope and bead necklaces, learn how the Maidu Indians of Coloma California lived off the land, play some games, and take a short quiet time devotional hike. We’ll have a little more fun, games, and learning after lunch, then we’ll gather together for some last thoughts before waving goodbye.

Check out our Prospector Trip Synopsis.

This trip not only enriches the minds of students by giving them a hands on understanding of California’s history, but it enriches their spiritual lives, while all that we do is done in the context of God’s love for us, His children.

    It was an enjoyable experience for me and my was nice doing activities together and learning new things. The staff were accommodating and friendly. The food was tasty and it was nice to sit down and enjoy meals with other parents and their kids. My son Shaun particularly enjoyed washing dishes with his classmates and new friends. Despite of the heavy rain the night we stayed there we still had a lot of fun activities the day after. We brought home a lot of good memories.

    We thought is was a good educational experience overall. However, a couple of the instructors were a bit too mean to the kids and judgmental of the parents for making a simple phone call away from the children and activity. Some of the children in our school group have special needs (my son has autism and ADHD) and the instructors didn’t seem to care or how to handle them.
    Would not recommend this camp to my friends at the school when their children reach the 4th grade.

    Excellent staff. The family activities were great and helped be bond with my child. Bathroom near the kitchen is in need of an upgrade. I used the bathroom in the newer trailer. If that did not exist, I would not return. The letter about cell phone usage is too strongly worded. I am a paying customer. If I need to use my phone, I will do it without asking to anyone’s permission which many parents did.

    OverAll fantastic. My second time with my kids. Our guide was fun and energetic and very well liked by the kids. My only issue was very intense conversation about the book of Jobe. These kids are 10 and some still very innocent, and I thought it was too much to pose such reflections such as “imagine your parents both die tomorrow, then imagine your siblings die!” Too much . There were definitely a few kids that really backfired on and you left several parents with some kids in a stressed out situation that is unnecessary for them to worry about. Other than that, it was great.

    I felt the camp was a wonderful experience for both children and adults. Learning how things were done during the gold rush days really opens your eyes. Cole was a fantastic guide and he was very knowledgeable. He incorporated his knowledge about the miners, the land, the native Americans and the Lord in almost every teaching. His passion for his mission was very evident. All of the staff were amazing and their love for their mission and the Lord was evident at every step. The food was fantastic, the facilities were awesome and the site is beautiful. It’s too bad I don’t have another 4th grader in the house, because I’d love to do it again. Thanks to all of the staff for the amazing experience and the dedication to our children. It’s wonderful to see such young people so passionate about history and the Lord.

The food was great too. The only negative thing I would say is that I (and some of the other parents) didn’t appreciate the hard pressure to participate in everything. I do understand the importance of it,But if I choose to step back for my own reason,I shouldn’t be called out and pressured into doing whatever the activity is.

    My only negative this time was the food. The accommodations were not adequate for vegans and vegetarians and the breakfast and lunch on the second day were not filling enough for any, especially the vegans and vegetarians. In the past we have had potatoes, etc. which are more filling for breakfast and a heartier lunch than greek salad with pita…a number commented they would have to eat on the way home, from our group and another. Never had that experience before. I know the chef was stressed with having two large groups following us. Don’t like being negative, but it needs to be addressed for the future. Thank you…God bless in your wonderful ministry…

    Wonderful experience. My 10 year old son and myself went on a school overnight field trip that was mimicking the gold rush era. All of our guides did a terrific job, and helped our group understand what life was like in the 1850’s. Thankfully my daughter will be taking this same school trip in a couple of years, and quite frankly I can’t wait. All in all, the entire team does an outstanding job teaching and entertaining the children and adults.

    I love the program. It fits well with what we study. The emphasis on God is something I can take back with us to the classroom. I love that!
    This year the food wasn’t satisfactory. The first night there wasn’t enough food for the vegetarians. The cook hadn’t planned for enough. The quality of the chili wasn’t as good as in years past. Breakfast was good but thought we’d had some sort of potato dish before, but really no complaints for breakfast. Lunch was bad! Always before we have had a veggie pot pie that has been well received by our group. This year we had white pita bread with shredded cheese tomatoes lettuce and cucumber. Very unsatisfying. Even if there had been slices of cheese a more substantial sandwich could have been made. It’s hard to make a veggie sandwich with shredded cheese. Not sure what happened with lunch but it left a bad last impression on all. Not sure what we were to fill up on. The fruit was good but that doesn’t hold one for very long. I feel like I’m complaining too much but something was off when even the cookie, at the end was burnt, hard & flat. Love coming but if the quality of food isn’t improved we will have to make a change.

    EXCELLENT experience! I was part of the OLM (Our Lady of Mercy) School group from Daly City (April 4 & 5). You have a very-efficient and ‘well-run'(?) organization. The staff were all very really nice and played their 1800-role throughout our stay. It was fun, educational & spiritual…the complete package. The one-night stay was not long enough. It seemed like we pitched tents and then packed tents. I don’t camp that much so it was exhausting to have to do that for such a short stay. If I had to do it again, I would change it to a 2-night stay, as there was very little daytime downtime to enjoy the campsite and area. Other than that, you have a great program. Keep up the great work!

    Suggestion: Demarcate areas that are likely to flood during rainy days. That way no one would set up the tents in those areas. Some families had to sleep in their cars because their sleeping bags and tents got wet in the middle of the night.

    My daughter and I really enjoyed the Rock-N-Water gold mining camp. Even though it rained during our whole stay, that couldn’t put a damper on the enthusiasm of the staff or campers. It was a great experience learning about the ways of the old west. We learned about plants and trees that Indians used for a variety of purposes as well as learning and playing Indian games. We made rope from twine and candles from a skinny wick. The kids made buttermilk and tortillas – and then we got to drink and eat what was made. We both loved the musical program and the way the kids were involved in the program. The entertainers were fabulous and we laughed during the entire performance. The food was hearty fare and really hit the spot. I would definitely recommend the camp to anyone looking for a fun learning experience and a bonding experience with their kids. Keep up the good work!

    Our group of 70 from our homeschool group had a wonderful time of fellowship and living history fun. Our group was primarily 5th graders studying California history and their families with kids ranging in age from 2 to 15. The Rock N Water staff managed our mixed age group with ease and excellence 1854 style! It was a rainy weekend, but miraculously when it was pouring the kids were happily engaged in living history activities, eating delicious food, or enjoying the campfire in the covered areas! The campfire entertainers were the highlight of the trip… adults and kids alike had fun singing, laughing, creating music with old time instruments, and worshipping together. A special relaxing and fun community building time for families and our homeschooling group. The encouragement that a relationship with God is more valuable than pursuing gold was masterfully woven throughout the camp. The Rock N Water staff again was excellent! We enjoyed this trip as much or more than our last trip to Rock N Water. I highly recommend it!

    As a teacher Rock-N-Water has been a FANTASTIC learning adventure for the fourth graders at our school. They have been given an incredible, memory making opportunity to apply their California History knowledge, gained throughout the year within the classroom, to a uniquely ‘hands on’ experience at the Rock-N-Water facility. I would recommend this company to anyone that would enjoy a fun Christian event! The staff, the activities, the food, the nature, the spiritual connection impresses me each and every year.

    Too preachy. Sermons and prayers at every stop/activity. The kids would zone out or not pay attention to what was being said, and so would I. I’m a christian, and I didn’t need God shoved down my throat by the group leader. I appreciate and respect her love and devotion, but it was over the top for me. The kids did have a lot of fun with the activities though and I liked the campfire songs. And the food was good and the candle making (the gal in charge was funny and engaging). It was a bit exhausting running from one activity to the next and again, if so much time wasn’t spent on prayer (during walks and activity stops) I would have loved to have enjoyed the environment and nature and activities. In all honesty, I couldn’t wait for the bell to ring so I could get away from her.

    Overall, we had a great time. Feeding such a large group can be challenging, but the camp did fantastic and we really enjoyed the food. The campfire and entertainment in the evening was a lot of fun.
    All the kids enjoyed the tree swing, but little time was made available for this activity. Adding time here is the only thing I would change.

    It was a nice experience for my daughter but it seemed like Rose was new and we can barely hear her. We thought Junior was an excellent leader along with his siblings, Nan and Trevel (spelling?). The campfire was the best part and highlight of the entire camp. I think you need an enthusiastic leader who has a stronger voice. Rose was nice, but didn’t keep the attention of the kids very well.

    We had a great time. The kids are still talking about how much fun they had, and how much they learned. We loved how organized everything was. Next year we would like to come back with a bigger group of homeschoolers and do the 2 day trip. MJ was a great guide, we were really impressed by her knowledge and great attitude with the kids. I only have a couple ideas for improvements. One, I’d like some sort of schedule for each day. It be nice to know ahead of time which shoes we will need and where we will be spending time, just so we could dress appropriately. Second, I’d like more filling snacks available more frequently. My kids tend to get grumpy and lose interest in the activities when their blood sugar gets low. Thanks so much for providing such a fun and education experience for my family. We will always look back on it fondly.

    I really enjoyed our one-night stay with you. The children had a lot of fun and learned a lot. It was fun interacting with the “characters” from the past and it was great how the staff dressed up and played their roles so well–accents and all! The evening program was particularly wonderful, as was the dancing and the gold panning. The tug-of-war at the end was awesome and the food and set-up for that was good as well–no one had to wait long. Sleeping under the stars in such a beautiful place was great. We created wonderful memories and even though this was four or five years ago I still smile as I relive all these things. I am retired now but would recommend RW to teacher friends who are still teaching.
    I also would like to say that I hope you received my card that I sent when you lost your precious daughter, Linnea. My heart went out to you at that time and it still is with you, as are my prayers. I’m so glad that your strong faith has given and continues to give you strength to move forward and to do your wonderful work for others.

    The trip was fun, but very rushed to fit everything in. It was hard to break down camp in the time given in the morning. My daughter was exhausted way before lights out so I think bedtime could be earlier. She would have liked more time gold panning. My biggest concern was the food: My daughter has a food allergy and I was assured that you handle this all the time. The teacher provided allergy info 4 different times. However, on the first night at dinner, there was no information given and nobody asking, so I approached the person in charge of dinner. She had no idea what my daughter could eat or not. I explained that I need to know about each item. She seemed annoyed and showed me the can for the beans and said the meat was safe. Right before my daughter was to eat the meat, she ran back out stating it had dairy. This did not instill confidence. This trend continued for each meal and we frequently ate last due to waiting for ingredient info (and it’s a little unfair to serve huge brownies and throw a little tiny packaged cookie out for allergy kids). I would have brought some if I had known. Please get info to allergy kids ahead of time so they don’t eat last waiting for info.

    I thought it was great for the kids to get away from the Tech and spend time in the 1850s. A few of the kids in my group had never been camping before, this was a great experience for them. I think it gave some of the kids a new respect for how people lived before video-games and microwaves. I also learned a lot about how hard life was in the 1850s and how easy my life is now! The food was great and the environment was safe for the kids. The staff was awesome and Anna was great, she really knew her stuff! I thought the cost was fair, but I know there were other families that had a hard time coming up with the money. I hope you all are around when my other young-en gets to 4th grade.

The night entertainment was so fun for adults and children alike. Izzy I believe his name was, was very talented. The juggling and his stories and dance calls and games were much enjoyed.

    I have taken my 4th Grade class to Rock-n-Water for over 15 years. They have an excellent, hands-on overnight program where the children pitch their tents, pan for gold, and so much more! They get to see/feel what it was like to live during the Gold Rush. The people that work there are enthusiastic Christians, who help the children experience Christ in a new way. They dress in period clothing and represent a character during the 1800’s. I highly recommend any teacher to make this a yearly event for your class . . . you won’t be disappointed!!!

    It is well worth it! The kids learn about and experience a little of life around gold rush times in a fun way. The parents and kids are always super excited about the trip.

    Our 5th graders at our homeschool coop and their families had a wonderful time at Rock-N-Water! We enjoyed excellent food, living history, and fellowship. We look forward to coming back in 2017 when our younger daughter studies California history.

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)
