    Amazing team building time while your group is immersed in God's creation makes this trip an excellent Christian summer camp.

The first part of the day includes top roping at a few different granite walls. We will have lunch on site, near the Consumnes river. Depending on the river levels, we may be able to go down to the river in the second part of the day. This gorge offers bouldering, exploring, canyoneering and a chance to cool off in the nearby swimming hole. On the second day, we will spend time at our camp and engage in team building activities. Everything from waterfront games to adventure challenges will meet you as your group spends the day learning to work and play together in God's creation.

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)

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. We focus our program on biblical principals, and we use the help of nature, friendship, and challenge to develop character.
