A few days ago Bare Oaks Family Naturist Park turned eleven years old (11 years since the current owners took over; 45 since it began as the Toronto Helios Society) which means last year was our decennial anniversary. The Federation of Canadian Naturists (FCN) published an article in the summer issue of Going Natural/Au naturel magazine which contained reflections about the growth of our club as well as the struggle of other clubs.

The 2014 invoicing for memberships and campsites was sent out a few weeks ago. As usual payment is due April 1st but we provide a significant discount for early payment.  A few people have complained that the deadline is very close to the date they received their invoice.

That policy continues in many clubs today. But at Bare Oaks Family Naturist Park, we don’t limit the number of visits. We prefer to let people make their own choices. It’s the same reason that nobody is forced to join a naturist organization. We offer a generous discount to members of naturist associations because we think that their role is important and we want to support their work. But membership in those associations,Read More →
