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!

Fall Nude Bowling

Sunday, October 21, 11:30 AM to 2:30 PM

Fall is the classic bowling season!

Location:

Montrose

Cost:

$20 per person, including non-bowlers.
Price includes shoes. Advance payment required.

We have rented out the entire bowling center for the event and it has complete privacy from the street. There will be nobody there but us for these 3 hours.

We have opened up this event to all our local clubs such as YNA, AANFA, NitOC, and the Olympian club to be sure to cover our costs.

The $20 is required to attend (even if you don’t bowl), which is less than if you went to a clothed bowling event and rented shoes, ate food, etc. The cost includes shoes.

This will be a finger food pot luck event, with the bowling alley providing water, soft drinks, and beer and wine for a nominal sum. They have no kitchen or refrigerator available so all food you bring must be prepared in advance (bring a cooler if your food must be kept chilled.)

We will have prizes for best scores.

Important! We need a head count of who is coming as the have to limit the number of people to 50. We need the full name of any non-SCNA member at least 36 hours in advance so that we can do our background checks.

Please RSVP to SCNA.
