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. Thank you for checking us out!
Due to concerns about COVID-19, GO SB/VC has canceled most social events and outings until further notice. Backpack trips may still be able to happen
We will be back in touch with everyone when it’s safe to go out in groups again. Unfortunately, nobody knows when that will be. Until then, please keep yourself safe, and others safe, by limiting your interactions with others, and by practicing physical distancing. As of the time of this message, people are still allowed to get fresh air outside by going for walks or hikes. If you do go outside, maintain about a 6 foot distance between you and others. For more information on COVID-19 please visit www.cdc.gov/coronavirus
Times like this can be very mentally and emotionally taxing on any person. Your Great Outdoors core group is here for you. Please reach out if you are in need of ANYTHING, and we’ll see how we can help.
Be well, my friends!
Yours in Great Outdoors,
Chris Fava (webmaster)
