    I apologize for how long it has taken me to provide feedback. I was pleasantly surprised (amazed also works)how fun and how much of a blessing it was to spend a week at Rock-N-Water last summer. One thing I had not expected was the devoted time our guide, Reed, spent with us. He was engaged with us from the moment we were introduced to him from activities to fireside spiritual discussions. Way cool.The activities were outstanding! Bouldering was my favorite and white water rafting also was very fun. We also had team building activities that were challenging and educational (and fun!). I’d recommend Rock-N-Water to anyone and plan to bring my family summer after next (we alternate each year mission trips and family vacation so this summer is our missions trip). Also, the price was very reasonable, good food, great fellowship. Heartily encourage you to investigate what footwear to bring as I brought very poor tennis shoes’ soles and ended up slip sliding a lot more than if I would have had good footwear. May God continue to bless Rock-N-Water!

    Great, I like the affordability, when getting together a youth group experience.
    The mountain top experience was great. My daughter came home with a better understanding of Christ and the Church of all of us.

    Staff was excellent. Our counselor was full of life and encouragement and her campfire facilitation was deep and insightful. Guides on the water were very safety conscious with a nice dose of adventurous spirit! I would highly recommend this to any group. I went several years ago but it still stands out as a great highlight for me and my group!

    it was amazing. The river is right by the camp ground. The staff is so wonderful. The kiddos had thicker skin by the time that they got back home. It was a growth experience and one that I wouldn’t change.

    I liked it a lot, but I had just finished another trip the week before and I (Ethan) was exhausted. The leaders were great, and it was a lot of fun.

    I really enjoyed my week at Rock n Water. Volleyball at camp and rock climbing were both highlights for me. The camp was well organized and well run.

    We’ve been 3-4 times with you guys and as far as I am concerned your camping experience is one of – if not the best – that I’ve taken high school kids to. It’s not that I “would” recommend you, I DO recommend you.

    Best outdoor camp ever! First of all staff was very capable and caring. The setting was spectacular, the most beautiful surroundings you can imagine. The ladybug canyoneering hike was the best of my life…unbelievable. Food was good and plenty of it. Getting back to the camp staff, they really had our best interest at heart and allowed us to experience the outdoors safely while still pushing our limits. The kids were challenged to accomplish more than they thought they could a d you could see their confidence growing. I would go again in a heartbeat.
