The gatherings/festivals schedule for 2014 is set, now we just need a theme for the year. It's all about family. We've been hosting gatherings for 32 years now and they certainly feel more like family reunions than simply a gathering.
We start off the season at Sunsport Gardens in Loxahatchee, Florida in February, then wind our way through Pennsylvania, New York, Canada, West Virginia, back to Canada and end up in Idaho. If you haven't already attended one of these gatherings or festivals I highly recommend that you check one out. You might be surprised at all the new friends you will make.
So gather up your friends and family and head to the event nearest to you. Stop by The Naturist Society table and say hi…we would love to meet you!
Volunteer Opportunities Available!
We are always on the look out for individuals who have a specific talent or area of expertise that they can share with us. In the past, volunteers have led workshops including Yoga, The Politics of Children in Naturism, Photo Tricks, Be a Published Writer, etc. These engaging workshops are the foundation of what continues to make our Gatherings such an exceptional value and an impactful experience for attendees and workshop leaders alike.
The Naturist Society staff is available to work with you to help plan a successful workshop, coordinate the details and logistics, and answer any questions you have about how to make the most of your workshop. Please contact Nicky Hoffman, Eastern and Western Naturist Gathering Events Coordinator, if you have any questions about presenting a workshop. Download the volunteer form and give us a call today, we want to hear from YOU!
