About the SCNA…
SCNA is a clothing-optional "travel club," which means it has no specific park or resort to call home. We meet in the backyards of members with swimming pools or Jacuzzis, or we go sailing off the coast, or we hike on secluded mountain trails, or visit local beaches where we can enjoy the surf and sand as nature intended.
We are the largest travel club in Southern California with paid members from San Diego to Santa Maria, although most live in and around Los Angeles and Ventura/Santa Barbara Counties. Membership is open to persons who are age 18+, single, couples and families, including same-sex partners. All must undergo an application screening process, and all agree to abide by our behavior guidelines at our sponsored events and activities.
But we do more than just have a lot of fun. We actively promote and encourage clothing-optional recreation and personal growth opportunities for all ages through our educational outreach programs. Through our speakers bureau, our publications, and our web site, we strive to create and provide access to clothing-optional environments where the unclothed human body is celebrated, where human sensuality is accepted, and where personal choice is respected.

Huntington Beach Pool Update
The naturist presence at the January 19 meeting of the Huntington Beach City Council received national press coverage and we hope that it, along with the many messages sent by people from around the country, will convince the Council to end the discriminatory policy.
If you appreciate these efforts, please consider making a generous donation to NAC. It is truly appreciated and necessary for the continuation of their fine work on our behalf.
