Membership Information

Membership in The Adventurers’ Club of Los Angeles ® is open to men whose activities are adventurous and whose activities take them off the beaten path! If, after reading this article that lays out the general guidelines for for what we seek in new members and you would like to be considered by the Adventurers’ Club of Los Angeles ® for membership or receive information about the different types of membership please contact membership services: membership@adventurersclub.org.

Who is an Adventurer?

Many people ask us what does it takes to join the club? Do you have to climb Mt. Everest? Do you have to go to the North Pole? Do you have to sail around the world, solo, in a boat you made yourself after cutting down the lumber in the North Woods with 18th century tools that you purchased from an antiques dealer in Constantinople? Probably not, but we do seek those individuals who are about high-adventure. In an attempt to put perspective on on what we consider "adventurous" we have prepared this fairly extensive, but certainly not complete, list of activities that are enjoyed by our current members:

  • Racing (boat, plane, car, horse, etc.)
  • Rock and Ice Climbing
  • Mountaineering
  • Travel to Remote Areas of the World not readily accessible by guided tour
  • Hunting and Fishing
  • Remote Photography
  • White Water Rafting
  • Extended Stay in Remote Areas (Peace Corps, Wildlife Experts, Ex-Military)
  • Extended Balloon or Glider Trips
  • Sailboating
  • Skydiving
  • Hang-Gliding and Kite Surfing
  • SCUBA in Remote Areas or Great Depths
  • Environmental Testing
  • Space Exploration
  • Test Pilots
  • Ultra-Light Pilots
  • Survival Gear Field Testing
  • Treasure Hunters Spelunkers
  • Astronomers
  • Astronauts (We take Cosmonauts these days as well)
  • Extreme Sports Enthusiasts
  • Base Jumping
  • Adventure Racing
  • Mountain Biking
  • Orienteering
  • Archaeologists
  • Anthropologists
  • Paleontologists
  • Zoologists
  • Extreme Skiing
  • Snowboarding

This list is certainly not complete and prospective members with new approaches to adventure are encouraged to apply. People with an adventurous spirit who have not yet, but plan to (within 2-years) accomplish a challenging adventure may also apply. Membership is never granted automatically... but, only after careful consideration by the membership committee and the Board of Directors. When it comes to the sort of adventures that are enjoyed by our membership, two phrases come to mind:

"There is so much more to life if you ignore the rules and take chances"
and "Try not! Do or do not... there is no TRY"
