The weekend was well-planned and prepared by the courteous staff and allowed us the opportunity to focus on our students and our purpose. We are so thankful for the hospitality of a Christian organization like Rock-N-Water who is making the most of God’s beautiful creation to further His Kingdom!

    All the participants and our staff had a wonderful time on our trip… The Rock-N-Water staff are consistently remarkable, you all are so engaging, approachable, now how to have fun, and generally humble.
    The meals were all great, and we really appreciated the way you took care of those in our group that had allergies.
    The trip was exactly, if not better, as “advertised.” The highlights, of course, center around time on the river.
    We look forward to future trips!

    it was fun! exciting , meaningful, special. my boys truly had a great time. We were able to connect with one another. the leaders were awesome, fun good care takers. everything about the property to the food to the swing to the games to the rafting to the camping is just perfect. There’s nothing I would change. I would go every year. I could see how much of a great time every one was having. Pure clean meaningful fun in a christ centered place. The staff does everything they can to accomodate us, support us and customize the trip. We were supported through love and prayer. Its hard to leave. I have bragged all about the trip to everyone. I love how much I was able to arrive and not have to worry about doing anything, I was able to relax, I didnt have to cook… all I had to do was enjoy. The staff are very very well organized. thank you so much rock and water! we love you. I highly recommend Caleb our guide. Bless his heart! I love who was in our lives during our trip. He means a lot to me.

    Our family of 8 had a wonderful rafting experience. Our guide Natasha was a very caring individual who took good care of some special needs our group had–from an 8 year old who was very nervous about the trip to my daughter who is severely hard of hearing and wears hearing aids. The guide put our 8 year old granddaughter at ease by having her sit close to her and reassured her every step of the way. Natasha also had our daughter sit by her so she could make sure that she understood all the instructions since she was not able to wear her hearing aids during the trip. We had a great lunch before we left and really enjoyed our time together as a family. The rapids were big enough to give us some real thrills but not big enough to scare our 8 year old to death. We will definitely being going again and using this same company. Thank you Rock-N-Water for a great day of fun and adventure…..🤪

    Rock ‘N Water provides such a cool experience. Their campground is beautiful and set right on the river. The environment seemed to make me let out such a sigh of relief and helped me get away from it all in a healthy way. Most retreats I go on still have staff that are running around and seeing their stress tends to make me stressed. Not the case at Rock ‘N Water! The pace is relaxed, the staff are available and you can tell they really enjoy their jobs. Also, the food was DELICIOUS and healthy. I participated in the rafting excursion. The guide was confident and did a great job. He helped us stay safe, have fun and get to know each other better! The rapids were exciting and we got to swim in the river. I totally loved the trip and I can’t wait to go back!

    Loved our guides and experience once we were rafting, our only complaint was having to arrive so early compared to when we actually left to go raft. We had traveled from about 2-1/2 hours away so just didn’t feel like we needed to leave to early to get there when we then waited for 3 hours to go rafting.

    I thought that the coolest thing was that my 12-year old grandson went with me, and all of the rest of the passengers (except for the guide, who was a delightful woman) were old fogies like me. And all of them were perfect gentlemen, no swearing, and they treated my grandson as if he were one of them. They made him feel so comfortable. Just one of the guys. That was cool. And he noticed it. And I will share one comment my grandson made when our guide asked the question “What’s the one thing you could do tomorrow that would make your day a good day?” And he answered “Go whitewater rafting again.”

    It wasn’t communicated to the camp guides that we wanted worship and ice breakers for our group and that was a let down as we had it in our agenda to be part of our program.

    Great time! The staff were very friendly and fun, and they helped get the students excited about the team building games. They were more than willing to jump in and help us with worship, which meant a lot and helped our students connect with God out in nature. They did a great job with safety instruction before heading out on the water, and were happy to learn about the kids and share some of their life experiences as well. The nice flat and virtually rockless camp ground was great for sleeping. And of course the salsa after rafting was delicious! Thank you Rock-N-Water!

    I very much liked it; I had been nervous about rafting but definitely changed my mind during the trip. I especially liked how relaxed the camp felt and how we could climb on top of the lifeboat stacks on land, and how we prayed before eating and then each table had to earn its right to eat by singing songs or answering questions. I appreciated that some staff members came and spent time with my church group during our campfire worship sessions. (I also liked how the bathroom stalls had bible verses written all over the doors!) This camp was more than I hoped for and I most certainly plan on coming back.

    With only a weeks notice, they changed their schedule around to accommodate our party of 4. The family who is the owner was right there,as usual, having lunch in the kiddos of all the guests. The “owning” family,had members all over an living there, not just there to work. I truly felt like a guest..”GUEST” IS a word that is used often, but at rock in water, I did. They could only run this operation one way…and only one way…..with the continual help from Jesus. Impossib me any other way.

    Overall it was a great experience. The camp is nice, the staff is amazing and the food is good, yet still has the element of camp food, which is nice.
    Thanks guys for a great ride down the rapids and for being so connecting. I only have 2 criticisms that I want to share:

    1. 7:00pm check in time is too late. I realize that we said we would do dinner on our own, but having groups come in at 7:00 is really hard to do, and not being able to really set up our camp till then was hard after a long drive up.

    2. When I was moving my car I guess I went into the second parking lot a bit fast for your liking which is ok to be told to slow down. Thats ok. but being told in front of all my students that I was driving too fast in the campground put me in a bit of an awkward situation. I would have preferred it if you guys just brought me aside and told me that instead of sharing that to my whole team. I understand being asked to slow down. I have no issue with that. But please mind the audience prior to sharing.

    Overall great trip. Thanks guys

    The camp is gorgeous (so many moss variants! A moss collectors paradise). I wish I came here as a kid, but experiencing the camp cia rafting excursion was an unforgetable experience 🙂

    Loved the campground, staff was professional and friendly to the group. We had a unique experience that I think most people would have with Rock N’ Water. Regardless, the intentionality and care you all have for the business/ministry you do is evident even when there are tarps over everything in camp.

    It’s an awesome trip- simple and easy, it’s so helpful to just show up and get awesome time with kids doing something they don’t have an opportunity to do otherwise. It would have been great to be able to have breakfast at RNW on Sunday morning, but we ended up eating food I packed in advance in a park nearby which was fine. Thanks for hosting us!

    I had a lot of fun on this trip. It was my first time to Rock-n-Water, and next time my youth group has this trip I will definitely go. We didn’t stop at picnic rock so instead we went on a hike near the campsite. That was really interesting, just being in nature in the calm after so much adrenaline on the river. I felt closer to God in this time, probably because I was so connected to nature and surrounded by people who follow God. I won’t forget this trip, and I will definitely share my experience with others.

    My wife and children loved the experience down the river – they have never done it before and it was an absolute blast. I did this exact same trip over 20 years ago, and things have changed with your company. Here are a couple of things:
    1.) When I called about details on the trip, I was told to be there at 10:30am as it is vitally important to be there on time. This is even stated in your documents and reminders. However, when I drove up with my family, after scrambling to grab breakfast somewhere quick, since we didn’t camp there – we had 2 full hours of doing nothing with our guide leader, who did all she could to keep us entertained until we actually got on the water. We were bored and could have spent our morning not so scrambled and showed up at 12pm to have lunch with the group.

    2.) Years ago when I went down the river I remember a higher level of spiritual maturity within the group leadership. The leaders didn’t even pray with the group before going on our adventure, they only prayed with the other guides before we went in the water separately. We also didn’t pull over and spend any quite time with the Lord as I remember it years ago.

    My 2 cents! GOD BLESS YOU ALL!

    Superb day! Our guide Josh was incredible. I have a teenage son with a disability, and Josh did a great job making sure that he was safe and had a fun and memorable day. Thank you! One suggestion – you might want to consider some alternative approaches for providing water on the trip (at least for some of your older guests). A shared jug of warm water was a bit underwhelming.

    It has been several years since I have experienced Rock-N-Water but I have been there twice and I must say that it is quite possibly my favorite Christian camp that I have ever been to (maybe even better than Hume!) While I was there, my classmates and I were put through a multitude of teambuilding exercises, strenuous hiking, rock-hopping, swimming, rock climbing, and white-water rafting. There was not one single experience there was that was not challenging either physically, mentally, or emotionally. My experience at Rock-N-Water (the first time, since I only did the rafting the second trip) remains one of my favorite memories from my young life and I still remember it quite fondly.

    Rock n Water is unique in that the company offers so many different levels and types of adventures, not just white water rafting…it also has excellent options for schools studying CA history (especially the Gold Rush of 1850’s- my son attended in 4th grade and loved it!

    Rock-N-Water was such an incredible experience! I was very impressed by how well it was run. The meals were so good and the cooks were very careful about making food that I was able to eat. I loved being able to go white water rafting and I had a lot of fun doing that. I also really enjoyed the volleyball sand pit. This camp was great, and staffed by amazing people. It was so apparent to me that the love of Jesus was displayed at this camp, through the people that served there. Great job!

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.
