Bodyfest Canada at Bare Oaks Naturist Park (Not A YNA Event)
July 28 @ 3:00 pm - July 30 @ 7:00 pm
Bodyfest at Bare Oaks Family Naturist Park in Canada July 28 – 30th, 2017
The first ever Bodyfest Canada is happening this summer at Bare Oaks! Bodyfest is an annual weekend-long event organized by Photo Naturals / the Naked Club. It usually takes place at Lupin Lodge in California, and this is the first year there will be two Bodyfest events – one at Lupin Lodge June 16 – 18th and the second event at Bare Oaks July 28 – 30th, 2017.
Bodyfest Canada attendees can choose whether or not to be in any photos, and the event will generally have “limited photography.” (The California event has a different policy, so read up if you plan to attend that one.)
About Bodyfest: Free your body and mind through music, art, dance, performances, games, and contests. Stay in one of the comfortable cottages, pitch a tent or just come for the day. Saturday activities peak with the afternoon Nude Olympics where everyone competes in fun and easy games and challenges. Then later that day slow down with body painting, mud painting, water games, massage, or just hanging out! While at Bare Oaks enjoy the hot tub, sauna, swimming pool, trails, lake, and restaurant. Bring your friends! Make new friends! Are you new to this?… come and try this safe, fun, non-sexual, way of exploring body-freedom. This is a participatory, high-energy event, so please be up to this if you attend.
Get involved: Several inspiring individuals are coming to perform, help and conduct workshops but we’re still looking for more ideas and leaders for this event, and certainly for future events as well. Booked leaders, performers attend for free and are paid an honorarium of at least $50 (except for the volunteer category). Please get in touch with Nomad if you want to propose something.
Main Attendance Points
- The event is open to all “nudies” regardless of race, color, age, gender, sexual orientation, religion, etc.
- There are advantages to registering and buying tickets in advance.
- Free for main performers, activity leaders, key event helpers.
- The event is total-nudity-only (weather and health permitting)
- There could be some very limited image recording – always announced in advance.
There are 2 admission fees to be aware of. One is the Naked Club event ticket, the other is the Bare Oaks grounds admission and camping fees which you pay on arrival and depends on how long your stay is – details are posted further below. The Bare Oaks fee is discounted this weekend.

Naked Club has never made a profit from this event (nor anything else). We spend money on food, props, equipment and support materials and performers/leaders. The admission fees collected will hopefully balance with the cost of running the event.
Bare Oaks Entrance Fee
The Bare Oaks entrance fee is paid when you arrive and we have a special discount rate for this event weekend. VERY IMPORTANT: If you have not previously visited Bare Oaks and have not gone through the orientation process, you will have to do this when you arrive. Expect a waiting period. We recommend that you visit Bare Oaks on an earlier occasion or arrive on Friday during the day to do this. You may also save time by completing their form online.
The special rate is a flat $25 per day per single, couple or family. We suggest arriving Friday and departing Sunday, 2 days. There are additional fees for camping. Please check their website, www.bareoaks.ca.
We’ve done a lot of fun interesting things over the years and we will pack as many of them all into one weekend as possible. Saturday afternoon we will again have our “nude olympics” with fun easy contests. Some possible venues:
Performances: singing, music, aerial silk, martial arts, gymnastics, poi-spinning.
Workshops: Body-awareness, yoga, music, contact dance, meditation, massage.
Creativity: body painting, nature costumes, body sculptures, giant bubbles.
Contests: races, tug-of-war, jumping.
- Thursday July 27 – The initial crew of Naked Club elves will arrive and start preparing for the event.
- Friday July 28 – Attendee’s may opt to arrive on this day to set up their camping spot. An evening dinner and event will be planned for anyone who has arrived at this point.
- Saturday July 29 Activities will start early in the morning and continue non-stop through the day including the evening. If you want to be part of the full Bodyfest experience, camp another night so you can stay up late.
- Sunday July 30 – Morning Yoga class and more activities may continue for part of the day (pending arrangements).
- If you are only able come for part of the event, eg. only Saturday, it is completely OK.
Location / Parking / Transportation to Bare Oaks
Just a 30 minute drive north out of Toronto will bring you to the gates of Bare Oaks, an inviting naturist park with it’s own lake, campgrounds, cottages, a pool, restaurant, and clubhouse with sauna and hot tub. This is a true family, nudity-only, naturist destination. An orientation session is required for all newcomers at this well organized facility with plenty of staff available.
There is plenty of parking at Bare Oaks. When the lot fills near the entrance there is an overflow lot deeper into the property – you will have to check in before being able to park in this case. Please plan to come early – the office will open at 9am. There will be minivan pickup available from the Newmarket GO train station, about $20 per person. We are considering a shuttle service from A subway station in Toronto – ask about it if interested.
Weather: The climate of this area at this time of the year is usually warm (or hot) and sunny with occasional brief rain at times.
Please visit the PhotoNaturals website for more information and to read up on all rules and policies before attending!
*Please note: Bodyfest is not a YNA event or organized by YNA. However it is an event and group that we fully support! So we encourage everyone to attend. :)
