Welcome to California Gay Adventures

Curated Events and Outdoor Adventures for the LGBTQ+ Community and our Allies

Welcome

California Gay Adventures is a group of LGBTQ+ friends & straight allies throughout California who enjoy getting together for exciting events and adventures. We are a group of adventurers exploring and experiencing this BIG state, country, and world together... sometimes roughing it and learning from our experiences.

Our events and adventures include a wide variety of outdoor adventures from hiking to camping to outdoor movie nights, pool parties, international trips, and much more.

We hope to see you at a local event or on a future overnight adventure!

Our Guidelines

CGA was thought up in late 2017 by a group of SoCal friends who went on a camping trip together to Yosemite. We have since grown into a network of like-minded LGBTQ+ individuals throughout California.

We have a few, simple guidelines:

  1. One Strike Rule - CGA reserves the right to remove any member from the group and from attending future events if rules are not followed.
  2. Bullies & Sexual Aggression - Any form of bullying is not allowed. Sexual aggression is not allowed. This includes unwanted and persistent flirting. This applies on all events and adventures and within our social media groups.
  3. Drinking & Drugs - CGA assumes no responsibility for CGA Members drinking or using legal drugs at any CGA event. Underage drinking or legal drug use is not allowed (under 21) Illegal drugs are not allowed on CGA events and adventurers. Impairment in any form during hikes and other physical activities is unsafe and not allowed.
  4. Public Nudity - Nudity is not allowed on CGA adventures unless expressly mentioned in the event description (i.e.: Nude Hike or Hot Springs).
  5. Public Sex - Public sex is not allowed. 
  6. Music, Noise & Quiet Times - Please respect others.  Quiet time for events in public spaces is at 10pm, or as posted in public space. When we are in private spaces will extend to midnight or a time deemed appropriate by leaders of the event. 
  7. Social Posts - Outdoor/Adventure-related content only.
  8. Political Posts & Arguments - No politically divisive posts or arguments, please. 
  9. Event Cancellations & Refunds - All events and adventures have a no-refund policy. If you need to cancel, it is your responsibility to find another member to take your spot. Many trips have waitlists and the CGA team will notify CGA members on the waitlist of open spots once the event, adventure, or trip has been filled. Travel insurance is highly recommended.

    Thank you from the CGA Admin Team! 

Our Adventures

The CGA Planning Committee is hard at work planning future hikes, day adventures, camping trips, and more for our members. We have a strong Los Angeles area member base with many members in San Diego as well. We invite you to join CGA and check it out for yourself. 

Past adventures include; Joshua Tree, Mammoth, Costa Rica, Catalina Island, Big Bear, Lake Tahoe, Big Sur, Pismo Beach, Grand Tetons, Colorado, Yellowstone, LaPaz, and much more. 

Our overnight camping adventures include both Big & Small group trips. Our Big group trips (3-4 per year) have 20-80 members attending with our annual Big Sur event usually being the largest. Our small group camping trips (6-8 per year) usually have 8-15 members. Camping trips usually fall on weekends.

We also host many day trips and events. From a bus trip to see the Poppies in Drag to charitable pool parties, beach bonfires, skydiving, theme park days, rafting, and much more. Our limit is only based on the limitation of our volunteer members. Love to plan? Join us and jump into one of our volunteer committees.

Our mission is to create heart-centered connections with like-minded LGBTQ+ members through outdoor adventures and community involvement and action.
