Who can become a member?
Anyone is welcome to join, from anywhere in the world, as long as you agree with our ideals, values and code of conduct. We are a body-positive, LGBTQA+ inclusive group and we do not discriminate based on age, race, gender, size, marital status, sexual orientation or body piercings. We believe in judging people based on their actions and character rather than on any characteristics that make up a person’s identity. We believe naturism is supposed to be about acceptance and inclusivity!
I’m over 35. Am I too old to join YNA?
Nope! We do not have age limits, and people of any age can become a member. While our event demographic is mostly people in their 20’s/30’s, we also welcome the young-at-heart. But even if you don’t or can’t attend events, a membership is a way to support our organization and keep us going!
What do I get in return for membership?
If you are only looking for discounts or tangible benefits, we would say don’t join YNA. We want people to join first and foremost because they support what we do and want to help keep us going!
That said, a YNA membership can get you a reduced rate at our affiliate clubs / resorts and discounted tickets for YNA events.
Do I need a membership card to obtain discounts at clubs, resorts, etc?
You will need a membership card to present at our YNA affiliated clubs / resorts in order to get a discount. However you do not need a card to get a discount on tickets for YNA events.
Do I have to be a member to attend YNA events?
No. However YNA members typically get discounted tickets to our events.
Where does YNA have events and where can I find out about them?
YNA is based in the northeast and most events take place in the NY / NJ / PA area. Check out our Event FAQ’s page for more info on YNA events and gatherings. Here’s how to learn about upcoming events:
- Subscribe to our newsletter

- Follow us on Facebook and Twitter @Young_Naturists & @FelicitysBlog, and join our main Facebook group. (This group is international and a place where people share events, articles for discussion, etc. It is an inclusive, body-positive, LGBTQA+ friendly online space.)
We also have a subgroup in southern California – YNA SoCal. They are not always active, but you can join the YNA SoCal Meetup group to find out about events and gatherings.
Can I apply for membership by mailing a check instead?
Yes, please send the following information: Full name, birth date, gender, email address, phone number, and list of your memberships to any other nudist organizations / groups (AANR, TNS, INF, etc).
If you are also buying a membership for someone else, please include their information as well.

Can you send my card discretely?
Yes, membership cards arrive in a plain white envelope with “Jordan Blum” and our PO Box as the return label.
When will I get my membership card?
We will send your card out around 2-3 weeks from the date of purchase. If you would like to have your membership number or card right away, contact us.
Can you send me a digital membership card? Or what if I don’t want a card?
Sorry, we cannot offer digital membership cards at this time. But we can provide you with a membership number via email. If you don’t wish to receive a card, simply respond to the confirmation email that you’ll get from YNA and tell us so.
I no longer wish to be a member. Can I get a refund?
