Rock N Water 4th Grade Field Trip
49er Fun: A Living History Overnight Campout For 4th Graders!
Fourth graders get the chance to experience the California Gold Rush at Rock N Water, during a living history overnight campout. California 49er History comes alive as they take an unforgettable adventure to 1854 with characters from the Gold Rush. They pan for gold in the South Fork of the American River with a miner of the era, and play with foreign settlers as they challenge the students in games from their homelands, and are taught to make rope. They are allowed time to grow closer to God through stories and quiet times in the middle of God's creation.


Students got the chance to learn and play new games that would have been played in the 1840's.

Staff and students got the chance to learn how to make candle and rope

Panning for gold in hopes of finding a nugget and learning the 49er skill of making rope and grinning acorn.
