CMEN Southern California West Coast Gathering

Big Bear City, California, United States of America

(in 4 months)

Plan now to attend West Coast Gathering 2024, which will be held August 18-26 in Southern California’s scenic San Bernardino Mountains east of Big Bear.

This all-nude, all-male gathering will attract men from throughout North America, the Pacific, and Europe. Enjoy a variety of workshops, mountain hiking, pool activities, volleyball, pup mosh, themed afternoon socials, evening shows, dancing, fresh air, camaraderie, and a friendly “no attitude” atmosphere. All meals and a choice of cabin or camping space are included. Several session options are available.

NOTE: Proof of full Covid-19 vaccinations, with booster(s), will be required to enter the camp, NO exceptions.

The Gathering is held at a conference center that is secluded from the highway, full of trees, fresh air, and great views of the surrounding mountains. Amenities include a heated swimming pool, heated dormitory-style cabins, modern restrooms, hot showers, and miles of hiking trails. The camp is in the forest far from the city lights, but only 88 miles east of Los Angeles and 60 miles northwest of Palm Springs.

The West Coast Gathering features a variety of workshops and seminars, mountain hiking, aerobics, volleyball, pup mosh, massage, playshops, and other activities, as if just being with over 350 friendly, naked men isn’t enough! Among the most popular features of the annual Gatherings is the now famous, 88-degree swimming pool. The pool has proven a great place to swim or relax in the Southern California sun, meet new friends, and to enjoy several afternoon special events.

Also popular are the daily afternoon-themed social hours. Just for fun, the social hour parties and evening events have a different theme each day. While nudity is still the overall rule, gathering attendees are encouraged (but not required) to wear accessories that correspond to the theme for the afternoon social hour and evening. The social hours are a great time to mingle with new and old friends.

The West Coast Gatherings feature at least two shows each evening, including game shows, talent shows, and special performances. The Miss CMEN Queen contest Friday evening and the Mr. CMEN Leather contest Saturday evening, which determines CMEN’s candidate for International Mr. Leather (IML), highlight the gathering.

After the evening shows, activities include dancing with live DJs most nights, hanging out at the “Gathering Spot”, movies, cards, bingo, and late-night workshops.
