Come one, come all to Creekathon,
A day of adventure, fun, and song.
With a pavilion as our base camp,
We’ll eat, hammock, slackline, and chill like champs.

Trips will depart from our central ground,
Paddle boarding, hiking, frisbeeing all around.
Leaders, get wild, take charge of the day,
Make memories that will forever stay.

Food will be provided, nutritious and sustaining,
And if you bring a dish, it’ll be thoroughly entertaining.
Mitch Lang said it best, Creekathon will change your life,
With hamburgers and creeks, away from all the strife.

Logistics are important, so listen up,
Sign up for the main carpool, don’t interrupt.
Departing at 10, drivers be there at 9:45,
We need you, trip leaders, to make Creekathon thrive.

All trips should be posted on the website with care,
For April 23rd, with Creekathon in the title to share.
Walnut Creek is just 20 minutes away,
So no gas reimbursements, but that’s okay.

Dress appropriately, and bring your own gear,
Sign up for mini adventures, the fun will be near.
Instruments, blankets, journals, and yucca to braid,
We welcome all to Creekathon, don’t be afraid.

So come and hang, get creek-ed with us,
Stay tuned for emails with more deets, no need to fuss.
Creekathon awaits, it’s a mega-trip indeed,
With memories to last, come join us, let’s feed!


We have a pavilion reserved to serve as the central base camp from 10:00 AM to 2:30 PM, SUNDAY APRIL 23th. MANY A TRIP will depart from base camp: paddle boarding, hiking, frisbeeing, mountain biking, slacklining, kayak roll clinic-ing, and anything you could possibly dream up – trip leaders, go wild, the ‘Nut is the perfect opportunity to lead a trip. This is the one and only semi-annual! local! mega-trip! and practically everyone who signs up gets on the trip. As for FOOD, the club will provide a nutritious and sustaining meal to be eaten at base camp, snacks and refreshments included. If you would like to contribute some food to the feast, you are encouraged and will be thoroughly appreciated by your fellow club gremlins – but no pressure to do so! Extra love and appreciation towards those who bring their own utensils/foodware to help us minimize waste!

– EVERYONE who is coming should sign up for the main carpool (this trip) FIRST, before signing up for mini-trips. (The officers will use this info to decide how much food to buy). If you are coming separately from the main carpool, just let us know in the signup questions. THIS IS THE MAIN CARPOOL AND IS SIMPLY HOW WE FIGURE OUT DRIVERS!
– The main carpool will depart from the Student Activities Building parking lot, at 10:00 am. Drivers, please arrive at 9:45. Once at the ‘Nut, all trips will depart from our pavilion-base-camp.
**Drivers and Trip Leaders, we need you!!! If you have never led a trip before, Creekathon is perhaps the best environment to lead your first trip.
**Reach out to the officers if you need trip ideas or have questions! You can also look at past Creekathon trips on the website by searching “completed” trips for ideas!
– Once at the ‘Nut, everyone’s trips will go out from base camp throughout the day. Fret not if you need to be back to grounds early, as cars will be coming and going regularly.
– All Creekathon trips should be posted on the website, with Creekathon in the title. They should all be listed for April 23th. For creekathon, it is perfectly OK to not be on trips as well and just hang out. But if you want to do any recreation beyond simply grilling and chilling keep your eye peeled for creekathon trips and post your own!
– Walnut Creek is only 20 minutes from Grounds, so gas will not be reimbursed.
– Please garb yourself in appropriate attire, sign up for mini adventures for creekathon on the website, and bring a water bottle. If you have/play an instrument – bring it! If you want a picnic blanket, bring it! If you have a journal or some yucca to braid- bring it!
In conclusion, COME HANG and get creek-ed. Stay tuned for email announcements with specifics for carpooling and other Creekathon deets in the coming days and weeks!
