The LGBTQ+ community has endless exciting opportunities to meet new people as a gay single and experiences to create memories with your partner. But bars and clubs, the traditional way, may be deemed as boring by some; what options do you have besides that? Single or taken, gay nude camps and summer camps are great fun!
Many of us in the LGBTQ+ community have experienced discrimination because of our sexuality when planning trips or experiences, which leaves us feeling unwelcome and unaccepted. Of course, we should not have to find gay-friendly places whilst trying to find experiences to enjoy. However, boycotting the homophobic hosts makes our trips much more enjoyable,
Getting naked at a gay nude camp may seem a frightening idea at first. We can assure you that there are queers of every shape and size flaunting their bodies. It’s a great way to gain confidence, find someone to flirt with, get chatting to new people and make new friend connections, potentially even someone to date.
There are endless gay nude colonies and experiences in America, as well as gay nude camps. Here are some of the best locations to look at if you’re wanting to feel the whole gay nude experience.
- Hillside Campgrounds
At Hillside Campgrounds, clothing is optional for all males. Based in Northern Pennsylvania, Hillside has been running for over 35 years now. Although it requires a membership to take part, you can choose your style of camping from a tent to a rented cabin, and even choose whether to stay in the heart of all the action or deep in the woods for some extra privacy. Here you have the choice to be as busy as you like or more relaxed than ever. Relax by the pool or dance away at the disco; Hillside has something for everyone.
- Aqua Beach Bungalows
Fancy getting a little further away from home but without the stress of traveling too far? Aqua Bach Bungalows has you covered. The only thing better than a standard gay nudist camp is this gay campsite located in Gran Canaria, which is one of the most popular holiday destinations for gay men! With a swimming pool, large jacuzzi, modern gym, bistro, and bar, the resort has everything you need to relax and unwind. Just a short walk away, you will find yourself at the popular gay beach or the shopping center Yumbo.
- The Woods Campground
Located in the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania, the Woods Campground is a “clothing optional” resort for gay men. Choose your style of stay from a popup camper, trailer, motorhome, or rent a cabin/tiny home throughout your visit. This campground is a great opportunity to meet new people and enjoy some classic face-to-face interaction with other gay men that creates a friendly and warming community. There are many activities to take part in and plenty of themed events like drag queen events, foam parties, and live performances.
Most gay nudist camps won’t demand you to take your clothes off, so it’s ideal to have the option to flaunt your fashion or soak up the sun over every inch of your body. But in gay nude camps like these, it’s important you know that there is absolutely no judgment. Everyone is free to do as they please without a care in the world! That’s what makes it so fun.
