New York Young Naturists — YNA Upstate NY (YNA UNY)

New York Young Naturists

Update Summer 2016: YNA Upstate NY is looking for new leadership. The previous leaders, Steve and Susanne, are in need of additional people to be able to run this group as an active chapter. However, YNA is still organizing events in upstate NY during the summer months. (Check our website calendar for those.) If you live upstate and are interested in helping organize events and running this chapter, contact us.

YNA Upstate is the Upstate New York chapter of Young Naturists America. YNA was founded in the northeastern United States, with original chapters in New York City and New Jersey.

Due to the large size of New York State and interest in YNA upstate, a chapter in the Ithaca / Finger Lakes Region has been founded. There are many opportunities here for naturist activities in a beautiful area surrounded by lakes, vineyards, and rural landscapes dotted with family farms. We are within easy reach of many central NY communities, such as Rochester, Syracuse, Auburn, Seneca Falls, Waterloo, Cortland, Ithaca, Watkins Glenn, Binghamton, Corning, Elmira, and beyond. You do not have to be a resident in upstate NY to attend our events or join the group. We are open to young naturists everywhere, whether singles or couples, and do not discriminate against race, religion, sexual orientation, or anything else that makes you who you are.

Going in line with the same mission and goals as the parent organization, YNA Upstate aims to engage the 18-35 generation and connect more young naturists or young adults who want to try nudism in upstate New York and the northern tier of Pennsylvania. However we also welcome experienced naturists who are older than 35, but who are young at heart. Especially those who actively want to help us reach out to the 18-35 generation! We have a passion to grow naturism’s community of younger members.

A focus of YNA Upstate NY will be to work on a well-rounded calendar of activities throughout the year, including fall and winter months. In this way we hope to serve the large student population located in central New York colleges and universities, who may want to try naturism but find it difficult to connect with naturist events during the cold months of the year. We will look to host creative events that fit right into our foody Ithaca area, such as “naked locavore cooking”!

In summer months we will work to organize meet-ups at appropriate area locations, and events at local nudist resorts, BBQ’s and games, body painting parties, social gatherings, and more. All events can be found on the YNA events page.
