Join the Southern California Naturist Association


Thank you for your interest in joining the SCNA.

Membership is open to all regardless of race, religion, sexual preference or gender. Members must be age 18 or over. They can be single or partnered/couples, not necessarily married or in the same household. Married singles are also accepted, although we need to inform the other spouse/partner of the pending application. Children of members (under 18) may be admitted to events as guests, usually for no charge. We do not discriminate against most tattoos or body jewelry.

Membership is at the discretion of the SCNA Board of Directors and may be accepted or rejected for any reason or no reason.

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 ask prospective members to attend one of our monthly Introductory Meetups with some of our members in a clothed and public environment (like a restaurant) or via our online Meetup to help ensure that there is a good understanding of our group policies, guidelines, and expectations. After that, prospective new members are also given a personal interview by telephone. Following that, the Board of Directors consider the application and other information and decide whether to admit the new member. Yes, it is a bit 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.

Our annual dues are:

Individual membership is $90 per year.
Partner/Couple membership is $115 per year.
Initial application fee is $30.

Become a “Friend of SCNA”

Your contribution of $25 or more helps us to carry out our educational mission throughout Southern California. You also receive an annual subscription to the monthly SCNA Newsletter, which will keep you informed about our efforts.

You don’t have to be a nudist yourself to become our Friend! All you have to do is believe that nudists have the right to their own “space” — be it a secluded beach, backyard or forest trail — without government interference in their chosen beliefs, just as we support your right to your own beliefs and values, even if they differ from ours.
