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!

Calabasas, CA 91302

Applicants are subject to a pre-approval background check (we screen under Megan's Law and for other major felonies, and we also network with other clubs and nudist resorts for names of people who are on their "do not admit" lists.) We usually also ask to meet you in a clothed and public environment (like a restaurant) before membership is granted.Prospective new members are given a personal interview either by telephone or in person. Yes it is tedious and meticulous. The whole process may take several weeks but our members appreciate knowing they can bring their spouses and children to a nudist event in comfort and safety.

Membership is open to all regardless of race, religion, sexual preference or gender. Applicants must be age 18 or over, but they can be single or partnered/couples (same-sex partners or straight), or who have children (under age 18.) Married singles are also accepted, although we usually inform the other spouse/partner of the pending application. We do not discriminate against body jewelry or most tattoos.
