    ALL CHAPTER CONFERENCE

    OCTOBER 12-14, 2018

    Registration is at http://greatoutdoorssandiego.wildapricot.org/event-3018763

    Come out and join the 2018 All Chapter Conference hosted by the San Diego Great Outdoors at Cuyamaca Rancho SP - Green Valley Campground.  


    This year marks the Ruby (40th) Anniversary of the Great Outdoors, for some this has been a journey for others this new, in either case its a great way to connect with other like minded LGBT and allies.

    We have a weekend full of fun activities planned for all participants, whether that is to reconnect with old friends or hike in a new area, we'll be offering something for everyone.

    A little about Cuyamaca Rancho State Park

    East of San Diego, Cuyamaca Rancho State Park offers respite from the dry Southern California landscape. The park’s 24,700 acres of oak and conifer forests and expansive meadows are broken by running streams.

    Located in the Peninsular Range of mountains, Cuyamaca Peak, at 6,512 feet, is the second highest point in San Diego County. From the peak, visitors can see Anza-Borrego Desert State Park to the east and the Pacific coastline to the west. Over half of the park’s acreage is designated as state wilderness.  

    Our Campground

    Green Valley sits at an elevation of 4,000 feet and has a creek which runs through the middle of the campground.  We have 12 campsites for sleeping and one campsite designated as our event space.  


    Saturday Night Event

    What would a Anniversary be without a celebration, our celebration will be themed to the 1970s/80s.  So put on your bell bottoms, or dust off your parachute pants, and let's have some fun.  Prizes will be awards to the best dressed participants.
