Creekside Outside Logo white

We are called by God to community and fellowship together (Acts 2:42). Creekside Outside is a hub designed to connect individuals who share a passion for the outdoors.  You'll find events that suit your level of adventure and risk and meet new friends who share your interests – outside. Activities range from mild to wild, are always informal and fun, and led by volunteers who love God's creation. For more information, see event descriptions as they become available or contact Quinton Miller at

We'll be in the Creekside Atrium the first Sunday of each month. Stop to ask questions and get more information.

Disclaimer: Some of these events are volunteer-led, and participation in these activities is not covered by Creekside's liability insurance.

Upcoming Events

Family Backpacking 1
Family Backpacking 2

Join Creekside Outside for a weekend at Island Lake in the Tahoe National Forest.  This is the same destination as the Beginner Backpacking Trip, but this time we’re bringing the family!

Who: Bring the whole family!  Even the little tykes! The hike in is about three miles long with virtually no elevation change, so the fitness level required is minimal.

Why:  To experience the outdoors as a family, and to introduce children to getting off the beaten path.

When: August 2-4. We’ll rendezvous at 9:00 AM in the Creekside parking lot, and caravan from there.

Skill Level: At least one member of your party should have some backpacking experience, and the Beginner Backpacking Trip in June is a great place to start. If you have a question or need, just ask. Note that vault toilets are available at the trailhead.

Please RSVP to Quinton Miller at, or by phone/text at (916) 502-3421.

Disclaimer: This event is volunteer-led, and participation is not covered by Creekside's liability insurance.

Join Men at Creekside for an unforgettable weekend at this year's Men's campout. Get ready to unplug from the daily grind (doesn't that sound great?) and connect with God and with other men who share your faith and values.
