About This Event
A naturist gathering for men who love men
When was the first time you were outside naked? Were you ten years old at camp, or was it just a year ago at Easton Mountain? If you've never felt the sun and the wind on every inch of your bare skin, Easton is a safe place for you to grow and stretch into an acceptance of being outdoors without clothing. You're sure to discover that many of the things you love doing at Easton are more fun when you've shed your clothes
Taking a naked walk through the woods
Practicing naked yoga
Dancing naked in the Great Room
Sitting quietly and journaling
Playing an outdoor or indoor game
Even a conversation with a new friend - or an old friend - may be deeper and more meaningful when you both are naked.
And this summer we have a bonus that will take your naked experience to a new level. August 1, which is the last full day of this camp, is the ancient holiday of Lammas - the midsummer celebration of the first fruits of the land. Your host team is working to bring a stellar faculty to Easton, including a gay Shaman to help us develop a ritual for this holiday. You'll also be invited to bring items for a harvest altar - perhaps something from your garden at home. And we will have facilitators teaching dance, yoga, sacred touch, creative writing, and art - any of which might be part of a naked Lammas celebration .
Now is the time to get your registration in to assure that you get the accommodations you want: tent camping, a bunkhouse bed, or a bed in a motel-style room (quad or semi-private).

Menu/CuisineMeals are provided three times daily: breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Breakfast is usually served continental style, with assorted breads, bagels, and cold cereals available, along with a hot cereal, yogurt, a hot breakfast entree, and fresh fruit. For some retreats, the last day will feature light snacks in the early morning and a late morning brunch. Lunch and dinner are usually hot meals with fresh bread and salad available. We serve meat, usually in the form of beef, pork, chicken, turkey, and fish. A vegetarian option is also available at each meal; we ask that this be reserved for those who request vegetarian meals, as there is not enough of the vegetarian option prepared for everyone to eat.
Snacks such as cold cereals, fruits and nuts, along with coffee, assorted hot teas, chilled water, and iced tea, are available 24 hours a day in the dining room.
