Great Friends, Great Times, Great Outdoors!

Great Outdoors is the largest LGBTQIA+ 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 localized social events as well as camping trips across the entire Southwest USA.  We look forward to meeting you!
