Southern California Naturist Association, Family-Friendly Nude Recreation
Welcome to the Southern California Naturist Association

SCNA is a clothing-optional travel club. We are a group of nudists and like-minded friends in the Greater Los Angeles area with no specific park or resort to call home. That frees us to explore the many opportunities for recreation and socializing that are available in our warm, beautiful region.

Within these pages you may encounter pictures of normal people just like you having fun camping, hiking, boating, and such, except they are doing so without the restriction of clothing. This website reflects our family-friendly orientation and illustrates the fun activities that we enjoy. It also has many articles and links that are excellent resources for expanding one’s understanding of nudism in America and world-wide.

If you are under age or otherwise not permitted to view frontal nudity in your home or community, please leave this site now. If you are looking for sexual content, or photos of children, you have definitely come to the wrong place!

Bates Beach Party

I [heart] Bates Beach, Carpinteria, CA friendsofbatesbeach.org

Saturday, July 15, Noon to 5:00 PM

Location:

Bates Beach, Carpinteria, CA

Another sunny beach event! To get our beach back it is important that we keep showing up to get the non-nudists who come to the beach to see they have nothing to fear from us, and that it is okay for us to claim the unused western end of the beach.

The Santa Barbara nudity law remains in effect. Persons removing their swimsuit do so at their own risk, although we have had no problems at our events this year so far. Go as bare as you dare! Your decision, your choice!

Bring your own picnic supplies, chairs, bathing suits and sunscreen and make a day of it. Afterwards we will all go into Carpinteria to eat and pay for our meals with $2 bills!

Call us at (818) 225-2273 or RSVP to scna@socalnaturist.org.

This includes opening our Meeting Minutes and Financial reports for your inspection. The club members present will elect the members of the Board of Directors who will represent you for the next 12 months. The board, in turn, elects the club officers to serve for the upcoming year. We encourage everyone to participate in the election and even run for office. The Meeting will run from approximately 2:30PM to 3:30PM so we won’t interrupt your spa and sun time too much.

Lost & Found Silent Auction

Also at this event each year we hold a silent auction featuring all the unclaimed Lost and Found items that people left at previous events. We will also try to throw in some other nice stuff to bid on. If you would care to donate something, please bring it to the party!.

For those feeling generous and lucky we will also hold a drawing where the winner will recieve half of the contributions. The other half will be used to support the naturist advocacy mission of the club.
