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!

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:
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.
