Young Naturist Gathering – YNA August Gathering at Rock Lodge« Back to Events
Young Naturist Gathering
August 17-19th at Rock Lodge Club
As Young Naturists America we will once again meet at Rock Lodge Nudist Club this summer for TWO weekend-long gatherings! Woah baby! July 14-15th and August 18-19th, 2012.
Friday night to Sunday, join us for swimming in the refreshing lake, volleyball, bonfires, body painting, yoga, tennis, and so much more fun in the sun! If you’ve never been, Rock Lodge is a beautiful, rustic nudist club with a spring-fed lake, surrounded by over 100 acres of green forest. The 3rd Young Naturists gathering at Rock Lodge was a blast, and we hope to see everyone again, plus new friends for the 4th one in August! See the schedule below to see the plan of activities. We will likely be adding to this schedule, so check back for updates!
The Pre-Registration is open!! CLICK HERE TO PRE-REGISTER. After completing this step, you will receive the link in your inbox to buy a YNA ticket and meals.
How To Get There: Rock Lodge is located 45 miles from NYC. Transportation options: Car, ride sharing, or bus. We recommend driving, renting a zip car or sharing rides. See driving directions on the RL website. We will be coordinating carpooling through the online registration (coming soon), so please indicate in registering if you can give a ride or need a ride.
To go by bus: Take the 194 bus from Port Authority to Stockholm (Express bus, weekdays only) or to Newfoundland (Sat or Sun). Stockholm bus stop is a 5 minute drive to RL, and Newfoundland is 10 minutes away. A one-way bus ticket costs $11 – $12. Then arrange for a cab or a friend to pick you up. Anytime Taxi, $30 per ride, seems to be cheapest option.
Overnight Accomodations: Camping and cabin / room rentals. Camping is allowed unofficially at Rock Lodge during YNA weekends and is included in the ground fees. Contact RL for rentals: info[at]rocklodge.com. If/when regular rentals are booked, there is room share available in a house on the grounds for $20/night.
