Rock Lodge Nudist Club – Guest Blog
Rock Lodge – New Jersey Nudist Club
This is the 2nd Sponsor Guest Blog from the lovely Rock Lodge Club who hosted our first club gathering this past summer! And they are now sponsoring Nude Year’s Eve as well as donating day passes to the raffle. As a side, we are elated to work with a club who have been so graciously welcomed us with open arms and open hearts :)
” Just over a year ago, two young friends of ours decided to do something to encourage nudism among the young-adult generation. The result was Young Naturists and Young Nudists America (YNA). We applaud them for taking this initiative. They are committed 100% to this movement and the results they have achieved in such a short period of time are indicative of how serious they truly are.
During the summer of 2011, YNA delighted the membership and visitors at Rock Lodge Club twice, as a group, for week-end-long events including naked yoga classes, and they expect to return. Everything they do is based strictly on the traditional nudist principle of innocent, non-sexual, clothes-free fun. That’s exactly what Rock Lodge Club in New Jersey is all about, so it was a sure fit. Of course being a co-operative family oriented club, initially some of the old-time members were apprehensive at first, having visions of nothing but rowdiness and drinking in hosting such a large young group.
But that didn’t happen, and YNA proved themselves worthy of the cause. They are a group of fine young free-spirited folks! The positive energy this young group provided was a fresh welcome, and it exceeded far beyond anyone’s expectations. The group enjoyed themselves and made many new friends. Rock Lodge was proud to provide the venue in hosting such an event and looks forward to many more.
In its very early beginnings Rock Lodge was a health farm promoting sunshine, relaxation, recreation and farming. It eventually evolved into a nudist environment in 1932, becoming one of the oldest clubs in America. More of this history can be found on Wikipedia under Rock Lodge Club and the American Gymnosophical Association.
Rock Lodge Club is located on 145 acres in the Highlands of northern New Jersey and only 42 miles from New York City. From NYC, it is accessible by NJ Transit followed by a short taxi or bike ride or, as many have done, by rental of a ZIP car for the day.
Rock Lodge Club provides a family friendly atmosphere and welcomes singles, couples and families of all ages. The amenities include a pristine spring-fed lake, swimming, sauna, hot tub (currently being upgraded), tennis, hiking, volleyball, pickle-ball, boating, fishing as well as parties and events throughout the season. It’s big enough for you to enjoy peace and quiet with all its natural beauty, but at the same time small enough to be friendly. It’s a convivial atmosphere where you will find yourself enjoying the beauty of nature, the community festive events and the friendships that are made.
Rock Lodge Club is adding to the festivities by providing free day visitor passes for the charity auction. We wish you the most success.

About the Author (Author Profile)Jordan Blum is a lifelong nudie and co-founder of Young Naturists America.
I went to Rock Lodge a couple of summers ago and found everyone to be very standoffish.
I was talking to another couple and went to their cabin. When I left I went to use the restroom which they didn't realize was in earshot of them. They made fun of me the entire time. :'(
What a splendid endorsement of YNA by such an indisputably reputable source; it just doesn't get any better than that! This successful collaboration between the established and the new demonstrates that the generations can indeed work together to preserve the best while accommodating the new! Let's hope this story reaches far and wide and gives many other camps and groups some ideas!
