    It was amazing! I had a lot of fun and it was a great experience. The big rapids would freak you out when you saw them, but after you finished them you were completely happy it was there. I am extremely glad I went! Thank you for this amazing oppertuinty.

    Awesome! Our group had an amazing time! Keep doing what you do!

  12. Jordan Dacasin

    Experience was awesome. Kind of intense actually because two of my raft mates fell off during the rapids and had to be rescued. The only problem of my trip is my go pro slipping off the helmet and sinking to the bottom.

  17. Chris Chen

    My friends and my family and I had a great time! Ana was really helpful and made my friend feel at ease. It was her first time rafting. Will be back next year! I told my church and other friends about my experience with Rock-N-Water. Some of my friends went on a different date.

  18. Jennifer Gilmour

    As always, Rock-N-Water delivered a completely satisfying weekend retreat for our group! They always come through with a great campfire, camping, bonding and rafting experience for our short but impactful retreat. Thank you, RNW, for courageously persevering for the Kingdom!

  19. Devyn Noriel

    Excellent! Beautiful day on the water with an awesome guide, Kirk!

  20. Thomas Rubino

    First time going white water rafting, had an great time! The experience was amazing, our guide Kirk was a lot of fun, relaxed, personable, talkative!! Can’t wait to go again and move up to level 4/5. I would recommend Rock n Water to anyone.

  21. Joby Noriel

    This was my third trip with Rock N Water on the American River. Their guides and hosts are always welcoming and pleasant and the rafting is safe and rewarding.

  22. Doug Rigg

    Great guides. Celebrated our sons birthday on the water with friends. Will do it again.

  23. Justin Koenen

    It was a great trip. Guides were awesome and professional. I went on the same trip with white water excitement last year but I prefer the experience with Rock N Water. The enthusiasm the staff showed even while running the kitchen was really awesome to see.

  24. Ron Ahlers

    Eden did a wonderful job the first day rafting. Nice work cruising thru the rocks and for giving us a history lesson as we got soaked. Thanks for the opportunities to swim/float thru the rapids and jump off the rock.. Lunch was very good and a nice break; would’ve loved to have some shade for it was a hot day. The outdoors was beautiful and the water was cold and refreshing.
    The second day was a delight as well particularly with the long jump off the rock into the river. I must have went down 12 feet into the water, even with the life vest on.
    We got stuck on a rock for a number of minutes. No one panicked and the guide was working the problem and we got freed.

    AN enjoyable trip, we had a blast. We shall return.

    THank you so very much!

  25. Sofia Wagner

    Amazing. Experienced staff made us feel safe while still encouraging fun

  26. Phoenix Szeman

    We had an awesome time rafting. Your staff is super fun, helpful and great encouragement. God has surely placed a spot for Rock N Water. We love it!!

  33. Chloe Telian

    Rock n Water is awesome. I really appreciated the water guides and the way they engaged with us, I loved how meals were done with a lot of excitement, and I thought it was really neat how the staff all worked together. We had a fantastic time rafting and felt like the guides knew what they were doing and could keep us safe the whole time.

  34. Miriam Rumohr

    It was an amazing experience. Our guide was very nice and friendly.

  35. Alexa Kwachak Hall

    Lex and Liv lived the rafting trip

  36. Sandy Phoon

    It was a splendid experience for our family of 6 although 2 of my older boys had rafting experience before. The trip focused on ‘Unity is Strength’ which gave us an opportunity to discover how well we could work together as a family. We bonded through the fun and laughter while paddliing hard (listening out for instructions from the guide).
    I was also thankful for Aaron for being observant and flexible in the planning to put us through a more challenging course to enrich our experience. Without that flexibility, our experience would have been much diluted. I would definitely recommend this amazing experience to all, regardless of whether you are adventurous or not.
    Thank you.

  38. Eric Thoreson

    It was great! The guides are very professional, the equipment is in good shape. A good mix of giving activities to do and balancing that with things we wanted to do. Appreciate keeping the main thing the main thing. e.g. Campfire focus on worship and the word of God.

  39. John Mahon

    A raucous ride with a great guide.

  40. Kim F

    Erin was fantastic! He is a top notch guide and we felt comfortable with him on our boat, especially with his quick reactive timing! He was excellent on an occasion where we needed his assistance…ie…woman overboard in a class three rapid! I would highly recommend the experience to others. We all had a great time.Thanks again!

  41. Heather Walker

  44. Jennifer Gilmour

    As always, we had a wonderful experience with Rock-N-Water! 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!

    Our group had a great time! We enjoyed the atmosphere and the excitement of the rafting. As I’m sure you have heard, the guides were great, very thorough and personable. Great job Eden. It was a fun day!

  47. Eric Thoreson

    we had a great time. always do at Rock and Water. Since first came in 2003ish

  48. Christine Linthacum

    Awesome! Hopefully a new family tradition.
    Thanks for everything.

  49. Isaak Smith

    It was great! I really enjoyed the activities, meals, and rafting. I especially love our guide, Josh as well. I don’t think I would really change anything! thanks for a great time!

  50. Noah Smith

    I felt treated as though I was a person and not another customer. I truly bonded with my river guide, who was a great role model, and very exemplary of how a young Christian man ought to be. YOU WERE THE BEST JOSH!! All in all I had a great time and have no complaints.

  51. Karen Meyer

    Josh our guide was knowledgeable and safe! We had a blast and our raft didn’t tip over! We will definitely be back.

  52. Erica Choi

    We all had so much fun! Avery was an absolutely wonderful guide. He is bright, conversational, and definitely added to our overall experience. We are looking forward to coming back in the future!

  54. Matt Plotkin

    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!

  55. Samuel Inori

    It was really fun from the group activities to the river raft. The three hours it took to get down the river was just right.

  56. Julien Friesen

    We had an amazing time with Rock-n-Water! Thank you for tailoring a trip just for our family on such short notice. Our guide Josh was fantastic, friendly, and fun. We felt entirely comfortable in his capable hands. Here’s to many happy returns.

  57. Laura Vanegas

    It was so amazing. I cant wait to go back again!

  58. Eliah Reeves

    Great they let you get out of the boat and swim. I would recommend over another guide company.

  59. Melodie Hambrick

    It was an expirence that I will never forget I love the atmosphere of the positive mood there

  60. Trinity Bodine

    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.

  61. Lydia Millyon

    It was very fun and I will never forget it !!

  62. Grace Powers

    I had an amazing time. My guide (Craig) told us the names of many rapids and some stories behind them. I will definitely want to come back again. 🌊

  63. Melissa Hyder

    It was so great the guides we so much fun and so chill with everything. I really enjoyed it and would definitely go back!

  64. Susanna Oliver

    She had a wonderful time!

  65. Carol Farnworth

    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…..🤪

  66. Is Em

    Great guide! The experience was both fun and relaxing!

  67. Sylvia Fuller

    I was nervous.
    But the guides made me forget my nervousness.
    I was able to relax.
    Have a wonderful time.

  68. Jennifer Edmonston

    Everything was fantastic – from the leadership, to the food, to the rafting! I loved the camp’s atmosphere, the competent and fun staff, and the fellowship with other groups while rafting on the river. Your camp is an amazing blessing!

  69. Megan Sinisi

    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!

  70. Bob Balzhiser

    Exciting! Well managed.

  71. Boyd Donavon

    Loved every minute!! Guides and staff were wonderful and friendly. The facilities and equipment were what I would expect for an adventure such as the one we were on (that’s a good thing!).

  72. Britton Grim

    Great time with excellent guides and blessed Christian environment

  73. Joycelynn Green

    It was absolutely awesome the scenery was beautiful and the rafting was unforgettable. It was sooo much fun!!! This place is great for groups and families!!whoever goes, please teach them to swim.

  74. Madeline McDougal

    Fantastic! The guides were great!

  75. Michelle Krohn

  80. Ashley Ward

    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.

  81. Jenny Gough

    Love it! The two people who guided us. One of them knows sign language. They pleased us in many ways. We would love to come back!

  82. Ana Karen De La Cruz

    Amazing, I had never gone camping, let alone to a christian camp, however I would totally relive the experience! 😁👌

  83. Audrey Brenner


  84. Anthony Valencia

    It was awsome.

  85. Bob Marshall

    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.”

  88. Gedeoni Portillo

    It was fun, the food was great and the people are really nice, there are a lot of things to do at the camp and the camp is not to big.

  89. Joseph Winston


  90. Eddie Caraveo

    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. Leaving us to come up with last minute ideas. The guides were super nice. The experience was great but it needed to be better communicated to the guides from the office for what we wanted and what we were expecting.

  91. Carlos Valentin

    It was wonderfulThe best experience in this and thanks for everything

  92. Tom Gant

    GREAT, The staff was friendly and accommodating. Spending time on the river with Colin was a gift. He is a good hearted, good looking, smart young man with many God given gifts.

  93. Bryon Page

    The trip was a blessing I thank you Lord for just allow me to go and be in tune with Mother Nature in the water and it’s just it’s a blessing that you guys have scriptures over everything it was very spiritually strong there and I just want to say thank you and God bless

  94. Seyic Pizaar

    I feel so blessed and happy because God use the people (who works here) as secular guide but at the same time spiritual thanks

  95. Charlene Wacensie

    The guides were super helpful

  96. Keithen Hayenga

    I was quite amazed how well Eden took care of us, especially helping us step on her leg to get up to jump off the high rockface, pulling us back into the boat after we went in for a dip; and just amazed at her heaving the rafts around on top of the van.

  97. Katherine Tragarz

    It was a lot of fun. The guide was kind and helpful and I so not have any complaints.

  98. Samantha Chen

    It was fun,when we were on the water my guide was very quiet I could barely hear him.And we ran out of food at meals pretty quickly but overall it was good

    I was scared at first, but once we got going it was amazing! I would totally do it again!

  101. Ben Rezentes

    The guides were engaging, helpful, and fun. The whole spirit of the trip was extremely enjoyable. Even though I only did a one-day, single-river-ride trip, I had a heck of a time and felt extremely welcomed by the whole staff.

  102. Michael Davis

    A lot of fun but felt very safe the whole time.

  103. Lindsay Young

    I loved the whole day! I’m really glad we had Emily as our guide, and Eden riding with us. They were awesome and made the time safe, fun, and intentional.

  104. Bob Balzhiser

    Great staff. Great experience. Always a hit with our students.

  105. Zach Mazotti

    It was great. The value, the service and food, and the conversations all enhanced the experience and, coupled with being in creation, made for an ideal trip. Thank you so much. I hope to explore how a calc or physics class can perhaps make a trip.

  110. Andrew Stokhaug

    My kids had a great time!

  111. Devon Page

    Our experience was all that we had hoped for: the right balance of structure and free time, risk and safety, adventure and challenges. We appreciated the laid-back, fun attitudes of staff, the “ruggedness” of camp and the accommodating/easy-to plan adventure that was just right for our needs. Thanks, RNW!

  112. Melissa Kong

    It was really fun. I enjoyed myself.

  113. Riley Stice

    Definitely one of my best adventures ever!!!!

  114. Lisa Chaderjian

    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!

  115. Gwynneth Craddock

    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.

  116. Michelle Rompel

    Loved it!

  117. Caleb Roane

    It was great! M son came home with stories about his experience. I was really concerned about safety because of current water levels. Caleb said he felt very safe and had a blast so, thank you.

  118. Kyle Gerlach

    Awesome time at RNW. Good was good, staff was great. Only major complaint is to upgrade your bathrooms. Other than that great job!

  119. Dan Breit

    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.

  120. Stephen Wong

    A fantastic time, with staff that care and show the love of Christ and knowledgeable on the water. Thanks for an awesome time. loved the camp fire. And thanks for getting a deal with the Hot Shot photo company!Steve

  121. Megan Eberly

    Well done!

  122. Travis Lodes

    It was awesome, always a blast and would gladly do it again.

  123. Alyssa Love

    Loved my time at the Teacher’s Recess Campout with Rock-N-Water! Our guide was informative and encouraging, and made it a really fun experience. The entire staff was friendly and easy to talk to. The food was great, and campfire time was awesome. Cannot wait to come back again next year!

  124. Zach Mason

    Great experience. Lots of fun

  125. Mark Meyering

    Was really fun. Cool pictures. Thank you so much for a great time! We were stressed out about getting there on time, but ended up waiting around. Our group leader clearly missed some info about the timing.Cheers!

  126. Kade Spittler

    Good time as a first time rafting

  127. Chris Duckett

    My fellow teacher and I had a BLAST! The white water rafting trip was really fun and challenging at the same time. Our guides were very patient and helpful with each one of us, and made for a successful trip. The meaningful relationships we made with the other teachers over games, delicious food, and an inspiring campfire worship will never be forgotten.

  128. Isabella Cahill

    Super fun

  129. Brandon Read

    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

  130. Zarianna Fernandes

    it was fun i enjoyed it would be more amusing and entertaining if you had cell service but overall it was fun i enjoyed it but staying the night with no cellular service/wifi was pretty boring but overall a great expirence keep up the great work!

  131. David Armstrong

    Over the past 14 years our troop has used Rock-N-Water for weekend Float trips down the American River.
    Always a great trip and great staff to work with!

    Keep up the good work!

    Peace be with you.

  132. Justin Winchell

    It has been many years (7) since I participated in the events at Rock-N-Water but I will say that I thoroughly enjoyed the experience of team-building activities and white-water rafting! The staff was super friendly and nice and I would definitely love to return for another awesome experience.

  133. Britton Grim

    Awesome way to encourage my grandchildren to find Jesus!

  134. Moriah McCune

    Fantastic and safe!

  135. Diane Gabriel

    Loved it! The rafting guides were amazing (shout out to crazy Josh) And so kind and so fun!
    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 :)

  136. Derek Uejo

    Phenomenal staff, amazing experience out on the river, and an overall beautiful camp with some lasting memories made… Two thumbs up! I highly recommend Rock N’ Water for anyone with a passion for rafting, and a heart for the Lord and adventure.

  137. Howard Hibbs

    Really good! You guys are the best! Love coming back each year with our youth group!

  138. Abigail Sweet

    it was super fun!

  139. Jayden Chavez

    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.

  140. Jonathan deMartimprey

    so fun!!! Brooke did an amazing job!

  141. Charlotte Stobbe

    I love Rock N Water! The staff are so encouraging, funny, and spiritually caring, and I felt so safe with them the whole time. Thanks for all you guys do to provide adventure, fun, and spiritual growth!

  142. Robert Grumm

    We have always enjoyed our visits with Rock n Water.

    Rock-N-Water far exceeded my expectations!! Wonderful group of youth staff, vert tasty & healthy meals, and great fellowship time! Rafting was by far the highlight of the trip! Very exhilarating! Highly recommend coming often!

  144. Katharine Staples

    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!

  145. Julie Wegner

    What I heard back from my son was all positive. Food, experience all good. He enjoyed the rafting the most. Hoping to see pics soon! Easy sign ups, which is a big help.

  146. Tyler Lowe

    It was awesome ! Thanks for making it so fun.

  147. Gabe Lee

    They did a great job with the kids!

  148. Emma Phillips

    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.

  149. Grisel Uribe

    It was fun. I met a lot of new people and enjoyed the activities.Being around girls my age I learned about their challenges in life and how I can appreciate things differently.

  150. Erin Hunt

    I was so impressed with the excitement of the guides. They all acted like they were so excited to be with us. The way that they valued us and our kids made the experience so much more fun.

  151. Matt Nisbet

    We had a lot of fun, especially for a team of adults who wouldn’t normally take such an initiative to voluntarily careen down white water rapids and bounce off rock walls. Well worth our team’s day!

  152. Matt Nisbet

    Our team had a terrific experience, even as an all-adult crew. It was definitely an invigorating antidote of excitement to break up our nose-to-the-grindstone summer tasklist.

  153. Patrick Stordahl

    Rock N Water’ s hospitality was amazing. We were accepted by all staff and leaders immediately. The games and programs engaged all who were in our youth group. And we can’t forget the adventure of being on the water- an exciting day led by two fun guides.

  154. Carolyn Corstorphine

    It was a lot of fun. The guides were knowledgeable and took good care of us.

  155. Jonathan Lewelling

    Loved it

  156. Rebecca Neargarder

    It felt like we were all very close. It felt like home, I am not Christian but I felt that God was there watching us and that he felt warned that we are worshipping him in a way that makes him smile and brings us together!

  157. Joanie Burnside

    Our raft leader was very sweet to watch out for me as I have fallen out of the raft before. I really appreciated his encouragement and care.

  158. Thema Simmons

    It was a great experience and I really enjoyed it!

  159. Magdi Abadir

    Everything was awesome, thank you.

  160. Chris Craig

    Great staff! Very friendly and welcoming!

  161. Katrina Garcia

    Kind and inspiring.. the staff have a great attitude at all times.

  162. Hemily Clement

    I had a an amazing experience! I would love to go back again.

  163. Georgia Richards

    It was wonderful! Rafting is always so much fun and the guides are wonderful. They’re safe but know how to have a blast.

  164. Rich Ramos

    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!

  165. Joseph Netane

    My child came back excited and ready for next year!

  166. Daniel Gough

    Our visit and ride itself were so pleasant and relaxing. Tour guide/workers were wonderful! They brought positive and fun attitude! We will come again and again and spread words to our networking too!

  167. Jennifer Tibbitts


  168. Noah Chavez

    Awesome. Thrilling!

  169. Carly Wilson

    I had a great time rafting with you guys. Thanks!

  170. Miah Murrieta

    I wish I would’ve went on the crazier Rapids, otherwise it was such an awesome experience that I look forward to doing again!!

  171. Trevor Hunter

    Third time I’m looking forward to the 4th annual getaway tell everybody about your clothes God bless you keep up the great work of God

  172. Barbara Brandt

    Very fun, exciting and exhilarating for someone over 70…

  173. Angelika Roybal

    This was my 3rd time going to Rock’n’Water with my Church Youth Group Every time I have gone I have enjoyed the Lord’s beauty at this wonderful place and the water rafting. It was such a fun experience and every time I have gone we have done something different. Twice I’ve taken friends with me who also say that it was the best time they ever had.

  174. Hersh Golden

    We had a fantastic day riverrafting and will definitely return next summer!

  175. Tom Drake

    Had a wonderful time, guides were great, will see you again next year

  176. Anne Mclain

    We had a great day with Rock n Water! Thank you!

  177. Marciana O’Halloran

    Awesome! It would be nice for smaller churches to advertise what they are about; how many members they have who wish to enjoy the Rock-N-Water experience and if there could be combining/collaboration. “All small church’s day” or Non Denomination Day? something like that.

  178. Sean Fitzgerald

    I can not say enough about the great people at Rock-N-Water!! I cant wait for my next trip there as I will be experiencing the marriage retreat coming soon!! This organization loves the Lord and the people of El Dorado County!

  179. Kyla Sycip

    It was great! Rock-n-Water crew were all very kind and welcoming!

  180. Haily Eddlemon

    I had a great time. Our guide was very nice. I want to come back again, this time with my family. Thanks, Haily Eddlemon

  181. Heather Gray

    AWESOME! Everyone working here was very friendly and enthusiastic about our trip. Very professional but very fun.

  182. Michael Chiu

    It was a great experience! I’ve been rafting in various places but I personally think this was the best rafting trip I’ve been on! Keep it up

  183. Dirk Sodestrom

    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.

  184. Greg Stiles

    Rock n water is a great place to be. The staff is friendly, caring, and does a great job of leading through the in’s and out’s of whitewater rafting and any other activity. We had so much fun! I would love to do it again.

  185. Stan Oberg

    Great trip! We had 3 generations in our boat, and our guide Natasha, was outstanding! She made us feel safe, and had a great sense of humor.

  186. Siv Ricketts

    We had a great time! We had three boats full from our church, and everyone enjoyed it. Brooke, the guide in our boat, was fantastic. We had two kids, 10 and 12, who had never rafted before and got nervous. Brooke talked calmly with them, helping them to feel comfortable and safe. We can’t wait to come back again!

  187. Elisabeth Spalding

    It was amazing. i loved all of the guides especially Avery and we all had a great time wrafting.thx so much for having this camp.

  188. Sheng Poon

    It was really fun! Continue to allow opportunities for people to get into the Word. God Bless :)

  189. Emilie Spalding

    I loved coming to camp and hanging out with my Youth Group and others that were there. Our guide (Avery) was AWESOME!!! He was funny, but was totally serious about the Lord. All of the staff was super kind and helpful. One thing my group missed was coffee (with a little cream). Thank you for a great experience.

  190. Daniel Johnson

    Enjoyed it.

  191. Calvin Dickens

    I had a great time! I love being able to get into the water and feel the rapids.

  192. Alaina Smith

    I thought the whole experience was great! The camp itself is in a beautiful area, and the water access right at the site of the camp was a huge plus! The food was great, all of the staff was friendly and helpful, and I think our group had a great time! Wish we could have stayed longer!

  193. Megan West

    Our guide, Ellen, was absolutely wonderful! Very helpful and fun around camp and a great rafting guide.

  194. Rob Bufanda

    Great time! Lots of fun and the people were great servants.

    Very friendly staff, nice area, good food. We had a lot of fun. Loved our guide Colin.

  199. Anita Chan

    I came here with my church some years ago for a retreat. It was a lot of fun being out on the water with everyone. There was also one point where we had the choice to jump off of a cliff into the water. Overall I had a great experience there with my church family and the activities they offered were fun and a good way to bond with everyone.

  200. Marissa Pietrowicz

    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.

  201. LaShawn Montoya

    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 is always affordable, and great for families, couples, individuals, schools, team-building for organizations- with very friendly, competent staff to boot. A+ rating!

  202. Michael Baldridge

    Great balance of excitement and safety.

  203. Adam Turner

    Rock-N-Water is a powerful ministry and outdoor experience. Wonderful people, well thought out and executed trips make this the highlight of our summer.

  204. Nicholas Wickenburg

    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!

  205. Becky Stroble

    Fabulous! Our guide Collin was hilarious and educational, made for a great trip!

  206. Kevin Chandler

    Rock-N-Water was my very first time white water rafting and the experience was great. The guides were professional and the equipment, training and instruction was top notch. I will definitely go again with Rock-N-Water!

  207. Sharon Dunkinsell

    It was cool. I hated that I couldn’t bring my own food.

  208. Heather Garland

    It was a lot of fun. Great rafting experience and our guides were really cool.

    4 or 5times I was a chaperone at your camp for students from a Christian school in San Jose where I worked, and once for my church youth group(after begging and paying my own way).I always begged to go to Rock -n-water because I loved the location,the camping, the outdoor cooking and dining, the activities and all the staff,the devotions, the water events and the rock climbing, the river hike, what a blast, even the games and instructions. I wish I could go back in time and do it all again.

  211. Desiree Tawney

    Amazing! Staff, grounds, price, and experience are awesome! Thank you!

  212. Jim Blake

    Meaningful time spent with God and others via this outdoor adventure

  213. Teri Romero

    Very professional and we felt very safe on our trip . My only complaint was that some of the young teenage boys said lunch wasn’t filling enough. Maybe charge a little more for more food ?

    The excellence in which you do ministry is amazing! In all the years I’ve partnered with Rock-N-Water I’ve never had a bad experience! I appreciate all you do as you lead kids and adults to get out of their comfort zones, get away from their screens, and experience God’s glory through nature.

  229. Bob Balzhiser

    I have brought many groups to RNW over the years and every time it has been a great experience for all my students, as well as our adult leaders.
