Serenity Garden

While at the Festival, checkout the beautiful Serenity Garden which now has a Budha statue surrounded by flowers, a pond with a waterfall, and an aviary.
Rootz NFLuX will be organizing the Full Moon Ritual and writes :

" A full Moon Ceremony is a time to honor all that we have come through as a collective consciousness and be with the community in a way that allows for the walls to come down, and to return with one another in merriment, singing and being"

Each ritual will be different with various participants bringing the season with them, in whatever way resonates at the time, This is a rotational circle with the leaders as to what happens at each circle. Bring your heart, a smile, something to sit on, and perhaps things to share. Know you are welcome, and appreciated.

Tex Laid to Rest in Memorial at Sunsport

tex mem
Bobby and Judy laid their dad's ashes to rest on New Years Day. Everyone who could joined them for a loving ceremony on the Tennis Courts at Sunsport.
After his ashes were placed in their ground encasement by Bobby and Judy working together – and after Bobby sweetly sprinkled a pinch of ashes on the tennis court – a permanent plaque was seated on top to cover them. Bobby spoke briefly about Tex, read a most appropriate poem to the crowd, and then led the whole gang in singing Tex's favorite song, When You're Smiling (the Whole World Smiles With You).
Later that day during a New Years celebration, Roy Hoffman read to the crowd a beautiful poem that he'd penned himself.
Tex may be gone in the flesh, but he lives inside all of those who had the good fortune to ever cross his path.

Simply Tex

~ Roy Hoffman

A man at ease – a smile
Long ago a child
Still – a child at heart – now
A gentle man – genuine,
Authentic and mild

Crossing time – unhurried pace
Seeking love in every place

Wisdom streams from every pour
Come to The Castle – enter his door

Strength of friendship
Exudes from his eyes
Peace reinforces
Strongly held ties

Unfolding stories – tales galore
Humor unfolds straight from the core

Examples of kindness
An open heart
A treasure chest
Living smart

Come to his Castle
Sit a spell
Be content
Wish him well

Happy hour all day long
Open up – sing his song
Walk his walk
Share the time
The unfolding adventure
Peace of mind

Life's hour glass – ticks grains of time
Running strong and doing fine

Tex's spirit runs outward
From the palm of his hand
Nothing is awkward
When he leads the band

Laughter's the keeper
With inside his soul
Always the seeker
of life's pot of gold

Paths are many – different roads
Tex arrived here
This place of no clothes

At The Castle – on this New Years Day
We all gather round
To wish Tex good cheer and all love abound.

Sunsport Gardens Family Naturist Resort

Although Sunsport's legal name is Sunsport Gardens Inc., we use the title Sunsport Gardens Family Naturist Resort. The Family part is important.
Sunsport Youth Camp 2021 Low-159
There are now two families with three generations residing at Sunsport plus many other children. That is amazing. But that's not all. Children are welcome at all activities at Sunsport. I believe that our Mid-Winter Naturist Festival is the only large event sponsored by a national naturist organization that has a full schedule of activities designed to interest children. Sunsport's July summer camp is a family camp with parents encouraged to participate with their children. Sunsport employs several teens and young adults. I am proud that Sunsport provides a safe, healthy resort and community for families.

Sunsport's Busiest Month

February is always Sunsport's busiest month of the year. Most camping sites with hook-ups are full as are rental units. However, we always have space for tenting and dry camping. This is a great time to enjoy Sunsport with friends you haven't seen for a while and an opportunity to make new friends.

We now have a variety of Sunsport Gardens T-shirts available.

The shirts have attractive designs by Christopher Vuk.

Hey What is Permaculture?

Permaculture is a philosophy of design for creating a sustainable human culture. That is, it's a way of thinking about how we set up the support systems around us: shelter, food, water, energy, society and business. Well designed permaculture systems allow us to live as a beneficial part of the ecosystems around us.

Art & Naturism.......naturist spirited art

Colors of the 'Wild Beasts'

Freek van den Berg

Freek van den Berg was born in 1918 in Amsterdam. At the age of 17 he began his artistic training under Frits Giltay and Han van Dam. The encounter with the Fauvist painter Kees van Dongen in 1937 was defining for van den Berg, the colors of the so-called 'wild beasts' impressed him so much that he had to visit Paris, where he was not only inspired by Matisse but further by the painters Derain and Vlaminck.

Nude Portrait in Nature
Freek van den Berg (Amsterdam 1918-Veessen 2000) was part of the Fauvist movement and was one of the last Dutch painters to work in this expressive and colorful way. His oeuvre covers a wide range of themes: cityscapes and landscapes, but especially the theme in which women constantly return. He was a member of the "onafhankelijken" (literally translated: the independent) and an art critic. Various books have been published about his oeuvre.
