NUDE RECREATION WEEK
The week after Independence Day relax with a Nakation. Nude Recreation Week offers a way to shed stress while exploring naturism.
Don’t let hot summer days weighed down you down with itchy clothing and bothersome zippers. Who needs baggage fees? Lighten your load! Naturism solves some of those nagging issues. Pack lighter and head to a nudist resort for the week.
Many of us may feel too self-conscious to explore this lifestyle. However, you might be surprised to find out there are an estimated 225 thousand naturists in North America. Naturists are those who practice naturalism. For many, the experience is freeing and ultimately, lifetime choice.
Around the country, clothing optional clubs offer events all week long. Whether your interests are athletic, artistic or spiritual, there’s something for everyone. While clothing may be optional, sunblock is highly recommended. Enjoy being unencumbered by the restrictions of buttons and fabric, but keep an eye out for pests and poison ivy, too.
HOW TO OBSERVE NUDE RECREATION WEEK
Visit the American Association for Nude Recreation to learn more about naturism. Join in International Skinny Dipping Day on the second Saturday in July. You don’t even have to be a naturist to enjoy that – if you were ever a teenager you probably celebrated anyway and know how refreshing a skinny dip can be.

HISTORY OF NUDE RECREATION WEEK
Eugene Callen and Lee Baxandall created nude events in the 1970s. In 1978 National Nude Weekend was founded following a successful launch of National Nude Beach Day in 1976. In 1980, they established The Naturist Society and by 1992, the nude weekend was expanded to a full week.
There are over 1,500 national days. Don’t miss a single one. Celebrate Every Day with National Day Calendar®!
