AANR West Youth Speak Out

Nudist Pride

By Sarah

I love to run around naked. I can’t think of any better way to say it. I love to play volleyball naked, go to the dances naked, and swim naked. To me being a nudist is about being comfortable and being just as God made us all. My home nudist resort is like my home away from home. Everyone watches out for everyone there. I am one of the youngest members, so for me it’s like having 75 sets of parents caring for my well-being.


I’m a nudist

By Tristin

I like to be a nudist because I like the convention. I can meet friends and play at the playground. I can spend time with my family in our trailer. Also I get to spend time with my grandma and grandpa. I get to ride my bike, jump on my pogo stick, and ride my scooter. I like the celebrations on holidays. At Christmas, I get presents. On Thanksgiving, I eat dinner at the café with my family. On Halloween I dress up, go trick or treating, and get candy. Most of all, I love playing and having fun in the nude.


The secret about nudism

By Amanda

When you’re a nudist, you are more free. You don’t have to worry about the way you look or the way you dress. Most nudists have hats, sunglasses, flip flops, and accessories. But you don’t need all of those things to be a nudist. You just need self-confidence and love of your body. When I was in camp, I learned that my body is special in its own way. So, the secret is love your body and you for yourself. (Don’t forget your towel!)


People just don’t understand

By Darin

I am a nudist. Yes, I am and always will be. To me being a nudist is celebrating who you are. If you’re fat, skinny, tall, or short, nobody cares. Nudists get to have the great privilege of being seen for who they are. They really can’t trick people into thinking they are someone who they aren’t. Clothes are like looking at the outside of a book without knowing what’s truly inside. That’s what counts inside of you, not the outside. People who aren’t nudists need to understand this.


More Letters from Kid’s Camp in Florida:


By Justin:

“I am having fun at camp. The only thing I did not like was the mud. It has been muddy all week. I had a lot of fun in the pool making new friends and playing games like Marco Polo and Sharks and Minnows. I have fun here because I get to meet new people and make friends with them. I had a lot of fun in the workshops. I have learned a lot from these workshops. I have learned how to be a better leader. My favorite day was when we went to Putt Putt golf and go-carts in the pouring rain so when you hit a puddle, water splashed in your pants. It was the first time I drove a go-cart. I had a lot of fun and I learned a lot. I will come back next year.”


By Erica:

“When I came into the world I was nude. My parents were naturists, so I became one, too. I was brought up with the nude attitude which made me feel more open to you. We are just like Adam and Eve; besides picking the apple from the tree we are made in God’s image which makes us all beautiful in his eyes. So why do we despise people who have more or less than we do? When you are nude you don’t look at people for what they have, but you look toward the mind. We all come from the same mankind. There are many people of all different shapes and sizes that you may meet. A lot of the people are really nice and sweet. Being in this nude world has brought a new meaning to life. You feel more confident with your body and you don’t need to feel shy. Many people ask why we go nude and we just answer that it brings families closer together and you don’t get any tan lines which, by the way, isn’t a crime. I’m telling you this because I want you to know my love for being a nudist will always show.”


By Jessica:

“JFANR camp was very fun for me because I learned about myself, I made friends, and I LOVED the games. The food was deee-licious! One of the games was one where you try to put clothes onto a person, and race it to the finish line. So, clothes don’t make the person, the person makes the clothes. I hope the people who read this know that people are not judged by what they wear, have, or how they look. It is on the inside that counts.”
