On behalf of the Camera Club, thank you for considering becoming a member.

Membership is available to all residents of Laguna Woods Village, and a limited number of non-residents as capacity permits.

A non-resident can apply for admission to the club using the same Membership Application form as residents. They should submit the application without including a membership fee to the Membership Committee. The Membership Committee will enter the applicant on the Waiting List in the Database. When a vacancy occurs in the membership permitting the addition of a non-resident, the non-resident at the top of the list will be offered the opportunity of joining the club.

Membership Application

The club provides all photographers at all levels of expertise with many opportunities to enjoy the company of other photographers and utilize the Club’s facilities and events.

Our New Members Handbooks outlines those opportunities.
