Three Pillars of Creeks to Peaks
Promoting the Outdoors
We are inspired by the healing, restorative power of nature and actively promote its benefits.
We believe it's important to intentionally invest our time in conserving and preserving our communities and environment.
We do it together. Partnership with other organizations, programs and non-profit foundations are helpful to our altruistic mindset for positively impacting society for generations.
The Therapeutic Benefits of the Outdoors
“Nature holds the key to our aesthetic, intellectual, cognitive and even spiritual satisfaction.” – E.O. Wilson.
We attend to agree. Nature is a great resource that helps us expand our own individual physical, mental and spiritual growth. At times, we don’t realize it but being outside in general is good for the mind, body and soul.
Science verifies the natural therapy and healing impacts of the outdoors in a number of ways. It has been proven that being outside creates white blood cells which help us fight off diseases and infections, provides Vitamin D from exposure to sunlight which can also help mitigate pain, and it’s been known to restore focus and enhance creativity. According to psychologists, exposure to nature helps us shrug off societal pressures, allowing us to remember and value more important things like relationships, sharing, and community.Whether you camp, hike, fish, hunt, kayak, canoe, bike, rock climb, ski, board, or any other activity that involves the outdoors, we support you and appreciate your investment in nature.

Giving back to the Environment
Creeks to Peaks will be hosting monthly cleanups at different creeks & rivers throughout the Ozark National Forest and any waterways we happen to come in contact with during our journey. We believe it’s a privilege to enjoy these natural environment(s) in which we inhabit. Therefore, it is our purpose to educate others about our environment and why it is important to have these cleanups in order to preserve the often fragile waterways, and ecosystems we come in contact with.

Letter from the Founder
Creeks to Peaks was a vision that manifested itself through the adventures and activities on our waterways and mountains, and everything in between, where we do what we’re passionate about, which happens to take place in the outdoors. When you think about a creek and where it is in relation to a peak, it shows a vertical increase or vertical growth. We like to do the best we can to sustain continuous growth of ourselves as human beings, and really growth in anything and everything in life.
For anything to be successful, you have to have a vision and a purpose. I believe that subconsciously humans know right from wrong, good from bad, and I think that everyone has some sense of purpose to give back, and in return it makes you feel better. When I had this vision of C2P, I really just wanted to base it around good souls that had good intentions and a passion for the outdoors, so that’s what and who I’ve made this company about: the Creeks to Peaks supporters, the Brand Ambassadors and the influencers in my life that have helped to shape this business into what it is. Creeks to Peaks is definitely not about one person, it’s about those around myself in which makes up the community of this movement in the outdoors industry.
Creeks to Peaks also isn’t just an “outdoors company,” it’s a mindset, an attitude, a way of life, it’s a lifestyle, it’s what we do and who we are, and this is how we know how to give back to our best abilities. At the end of the day, we don’t just want to aspire to make a living, we aspire to make a difference. It’s as simple as that.
We’re trying to push the artistic and outdoors industries/communities forward and in a direction that we want, in order to follow the road less traveled. We can take this as far as you want, because you’re just as much of a part of it, as I am myself. This is not your average outdoors company. We’re more like an ambassador of positivity, non-exclusive, nature-lovin', authentic and non-fabricated outdoors-inspired company, mixed with some jazz and poured with a ton of soul.
We want to be intentional in all our actions, do what we say we’re going to do, and be on the offense of positivity and innovation in order to bring you the best content possible. When we do these cleanup events in the environment or give back to our communities, it’s not necessarily our job to do that, but instead, we think it’s our duty and we take pride in that, for what it is. You can support the C2P vision by not just buying one of our products, but more importantly, giving your time, being a steward for environmental conservancy, preserving and sustainability. I challenge each of you to adventure more, get outside more, and focus on your gifts and purpose in order to give back to that in which we are grateful for and appreciate, The Great Outdoors. Tread lightly, and be safe on your future adventures, my friends.–Spencer Tooley (Founder)
