Here are some organizations which share our values for family-friendly naturist living:
The mission of The Naturist Society is to promote a culture of body acceptance through clothing-optional recreation, using the tools of education and community outreach. The Naturist Society celebrates the nude human form as inherently wholesome and natural. TNS promotes attitudes of tolerance and respect toward the body, and rejects the exploitation of the body for commercial or sexual purposes.
The Naturist Society views clothing-optional recreation as essential to body acceptance. Through clothing-optional recreation, individuals, couples and families learn to appreciate the diversity of body types, gain a better understanding and acceptance of their own bodies, and reap the social, psychological, and physical benefits of a healthy and natural way of life.
The Naturist Society believes the interests of naturists are advanced through education and community outreach. TNS recognizes it is part of a larger community and welcomes the challenge of spreading the naturist message.
Our Mission: Simply put, we exist "To advocate nudity and nude recreation in appropriate settings while educating and informing society of their value and enjoyment."
The American Association for Nude Recreation is the largest, most long-established organization of its kind in North America. With roots dating to 1931, AANR has grown from humble beginnings to an organization that has served 213,000 individuals throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico and beyond. These members enjoy their own backyards and pools with family and friends, as well as over 200 nudist resorts and affiliates.
Federation of Canadian Naturists and
The Federation of Canadian Naturists (FCN) and the Fédération québécoise de naturisme (FQN) constitute together the national naturist organization in Canada. We strive to:
- Promote naturism to Canadians
- Help naturists find out how and where they may enjoy the naturist life
- Represent the interests of Canadian naturist individuals, families, clubs, resorts, and organizations.
International Naturist Federation (INF-FNI)
The International Naturist Federation is an international organisation with federations and correspondents all over the world. They state, "Naturism is a way of life in harmony with nature characterised by the practice of communal nudity with the intention of encouraging self-respect, respect for others and for the environment".
South Florida Free Beaches works to educate the public and local governments to the advantages of maintaining the clothing-optional section of Haulover Beach near Miami. The beach celebrated it's 25th anniversary in July, 2016.
Young Naturists and Young Nudists America (or YNA for short) is a youth focused nudist organization that is open to all socially nude and naked friendly people interested in naturism, nudism and nudie related activities. Their website is constantly being updated with articles and posts about naked and nudity related news, social issues as well as non-sexual clothing optional or nude mandatory events and naked parties. It's also home to Felicity's Blog.
Bare Oaks Family Naturist Park
Anne and Morley recently visited Bare Oaks Family Naturist Park in the Toronto, Canada area and loved it. They said it felt like being back home at Sunsport. Beautiful natural grounds, a smokefree policy, a restaurant with homemade vegetarian options, lots of children and young adults, ecological sensitivity, and a very friendly welcoming community are the result of values similar to Sunsport. Morley really enjoyed swimming the circumference of their beautiful lake a couple of times each day.
Sunsport's Board has designated Bare Oaks a Sister Naturist Resort. Sunsport and Bare Oaks have agreed to display each other's brochures and welcome members from each others' clubs at the discounted TNS/AANR/FCN/FQN/YNA rates.
Index of Florida Naturist Organizations
