Review Of TNS – The Naturist Society Assembly

The Naturist Society:
June 17th-19th we went to the yearly Naturist Society (TNS) Eastern Assembly that happened at a big campground in northern PA. This is our first time attending this event along with a couple hundred individuals, and we had a fairly great time.
This week-long gathering consists of group discussions and seminars on various naturist / naturist issues and also fun leisure activities like the dances at night, a tye-dying session, and swimming and kayaking at the enormous lake. The food was alright and served 3 times/day in a huge hall. We tented again, but additionally, there are cottages. On our first night, there was a talent show of varied acts, of which my favorite was the two-man duet with “Enrique Iglesias” and “Whitney Houston.” This is followed by Oneg Shabat (the Jewish welcoming ceremony of the Sabbath) with several people and a pajama-themed dance party. (I thought the Jewish Sabbath thing was really arbitrary, though it’s a Jewish camp.)
On Saturday night it was a Halloween motif dance with some amusing costumes. All in all there very few folks in their 20s/30s, but that is not an event made for young folks. (Young people do not desire a workshop on how to use their iPhone for example.)
Yet this is not to say there were not a lot of interesting folks to meet and talk to, such as those who are involved in the Naturist Action Committee, and we were not disappointed with the NAC’s seminars and others about naturism. We attended talks about and naturism, “making waves” with NAC and on the future of naturism. Questions of the part of young folks in nudism came up. ie, Why do young people appear to be losing in the movement? How do we reach out to them? These are questions we have also had to ask ourselves!
If you have been a naturist for a very long time, do you believe young people are missing? It was said that even those people who are introduced to naturism when they’re young look to take a break beginning with the school years up to their 30s, and then some end up going back to it (at least we hope they do.) But are there plenty of young naturists out there? Does anyone know of any college besides Yale that’s or had nonsexual naked parties? I am wondering if naturism has any kind of presence at many faculties
