Great Friends, Great Times, Great Outdoors!

Great Outdoors is the largest LGBTQA+ outdoors recreation club in the western United States.  We go camping; host day hikes; have movie nights; host potlucks and holiday parties; and visit gardens, galleries, and museums.  

The Santa Barbara/Ventura County Chapter has many local social events as well as camping trips across the entire Southwest USA.  We look forward to meeting you!
