Youth Leadership Camp at Shangri-La Ranch in New River, AZ, as well as nudist camps operating in Virginia and Florida, are just a few of an increasing number of nudist camps for children ages 11-18. Since many of these children attend the camp without their parents, the camp has raised concerns among state officials and lawmakers mainly because of their lack of investigating, and jumping to the wrong conclusion.ClothesFree.com film crew was there, see Nudes in the News Show #25.

These camps are good for teens' self-esteem and nudism is NOT about sexuality and exploitation. But opponents, like Florida Congressman Mark Foley, are concerned about sexual or lewd behavior between campers, as well as the background checks and the application process for camp counselors, volunteers and staff. 

Four pre-teens and teens Ali, 12, and her sister Amanda, 15 & Justine, 11, and her brother, Kyle, 16. Kyle and Justine told John Walsh on his TV show that they love going to nudist camp because they feel secure and are not judged based on what clothes they have on or what their bodies look like. Ali has gone to the nudist camp for 3 years and says she enjoys it because going to camp makes her feel good about herself, and kids really get to know each other and care about what's on the inside. Amanda has gone to nudist camp for 6 years; she insists that people have the wrong idea about the camp. Eric & Kathy, Ali & Amanda's stepfather and mother, say that nudist camp has helped their daughters have more confidence and higher self-esteem than they would have at a regular camp, and say opponents of the camps should really investigate before they condemn nudists' way of life. Marion, Kyle & Justine's grandmother, also defends the existence of the camps. She's been a nudist for 15 years and even worked as a volunteer this past summer at the teen nudist camp that her grandchildren attended. Patty is the manager of Shangri-La Ranch, a clothing optional resort just outside of Phoenix, AZ, which recently hosted a teen nudist camp that her three children - ages 11, 14 & 16 - attended. Patty believes kids benefit from the camp. 22-year-old Steven, who was a counselor at a teen nudist camp this past June, says he's tired of hearing all the misconceptions about nudism.

Nudism Good for Children ? Aren’t Kids Nudists Anyway?

Children and Nudism

Nudist Kids – Is Nudism Good for Children - Benjamin Spock, Ann Landers, and Abigail van Buren, all popular authorities on child-rearing and other matters, have often warned of the dangers of exposing children to nudity. Though their theories on the matter are well-known, are they truly valid? Is there solid research to prove it? Studies of how nudity affects kids are actually sparse, though they have slightly increased in number in recent years. The findings and their interpretations are often influenced by researchers’ own preconceptions, including findings that may better explain the effects of parents’ attitudes toward nudity on kids rather than the actual effect of children being exposed to nudity. However since the late 1970’s, more objective and controlled research has taken place in an effort to identify the truth of how exposure to nudity affects child development. All of this research indicates not only a lack of negative effects, but a whole list of benefits to children.

1.)   One of the first truly objective studies was developed by Dr. Marilyn Story, a researcher who sought to examine the role of family social nudityclassification on body self-concept development in preschool-aged children. Dr. Story interviewed 264 children aged three to five years as well as their parents. The children were classified in one of three categories: socialnaturists or simply put – nudist kids , at-home nudist, and non- nudist kids. Each child was interviewed individually as they were asked about their body parts, namely whether they like each of the 16 body parts discussed.  Within this study, a correlation was identified between gender and which body parts were most desirable. The study also found that non- nudist kids most often identified their genitals as their least-liked body parts. Adversely, nudist kids ( which basically means – children from nudist homes ) identified their genitals as their most-liked body parts and identified no parts of their body that they liked the least. Within this study, naturism / nudism was found to be a more important variable than gender, race, and geographical area in terms of having a positive self-concept, body acceptance, and self-image.

2.)   Another important study was conducted by Ron and Juliette Goldman in 1981 to examine children’s perception of clothing and nakedness in regard to modesty in four different locations: North America, England, Australia, and Sweden. Within this study, children aged five to fifteen were studied, and research centered on children’s perceptions of the need for clothing in different circumstances as well as the reason given for the need for clothing. Though the study was intended to determine which societies were most insistent on wearing clothes for the purpose of modesty, this study determined that children’s perceptions of nakedness was strongly tinged with guilt. As they aged they conformed more to their parents’ modesty training, thereby causing children’s guilt about nakedness to increase with age. Such guilt was found in children who did not understand, accept, or enjoy their body and its sex organs as natural and normal.

 

3.)   Robin Lewis and Louis Janda conducted a study in 1998 to examine the relationship between adult sexual adjustment and childhood exposure to nudity, sleeping in the parental bed, and parental attitudes toward sexuality. These components had mixed results in previous studies, which necessitated further research. Lewis and Janda used an extensive questionnaire to survey 210 undergraduate university students about their childhood experiences with nudity. The results of the study were clear: there is a positive relationship between childhood exposure to nudity and adult sexual comfort. Further, the study found that children from birth to age five who were exposed to nudity felt less discomfort with affection and physical contact as they grew older. Children ages 6-11 who were exposed to nudity (i.e. nudist kids ) had greater self-esteem and knowledge about sex.

 

4.)   Margaret Mead is an anthropologist who has completed many studies on the effects of nudity on children and is one of the most well-known researchers on this topic. Dr. Mead studied cultures throughout the world and noted many negative effects that clothing had in the western culture’s clothing-dependent society. These effects include a separation of “self” from the “body,” a lack of point of comparison for all body parts due to clothing covering them, a preoccupation with sex that is emphasized through clothing, and a lack of education about the human body related to lack of exposure to it. She further identified that the nudity or partial nudity common to more primitive cultures was not an indication of a lack of modesty, and the way nudity is handled within a culture is more important than the presence of nudity in determining whether it will have negative effects. One area that she emphasizes is that a child must see nudity amongst adults so that they know what their body will become; this is essential to the developing person.

One common theme throughout the research was the effect of the family’s and society’s attitude about nudity on children. The presence of a positive or negative attitude towards nudity was far more important than any other factor in nearly every situation when it came to how a child would react to nudity around them. These studies show that not only is nudity not harmful to children (sorry Dr. Spock), but that they can benefit in various ways from exposure to nudity in a body-positive, accepting environment. Children can gain increased knowledge and understanding of the human body in all of its forms along with greater comfort with sexuality and physical contact as they grow older. They also learn to accept their own bodies and have greater self-esteem.

Thus it is really up to us as parents, as educators, as individuals, as a society, to adopt a more open and accepting view of nudity for children to benefit.

I also concur that children and naturism are a healthy combination. I'm living proof, if I may say so myself.

My parents were naturists from before my birth and I've grown up with a healthy body image as well as respect for other humans irespective of gender, race, sexual orientation, validity, obesity or any other labeling possible or customary.

 

A health body comes from a healthy mind!

nudism is good for children because when a boy sees a guy with an erection he won't feel ashamed or embarrassed about asking his parents regarding his bodily functions

Makes one wonder what Messrs. Spock, Landers and van Buren's exposure (pun intended) to social nudity is/was - ? - if any whatsoever. How can one advise someone else whether or not they should smell a rose, and indeed what it smells like, if one has not in fact inhaled deeply of a rose oneself?...

I have always thought that Ann Landers and her twin sister, Abigail Van Buren, (both pen names) were quite liberal about nudity in the family. I did a google search of some of their columns on nudity and i think over all they thought that children raised in a nudist family was a good thing. As for Dr. Spock, I haven't seen anything he wrote about the subject, yet.

We are a nudist family, and my son seems to be very well adjusted. He doesn't seem to have the issues with body image or hangups about clothes that most of his peers seem to have.

One has to go to any family nudist club to see the effect of nudity on children. Our so called experts are, as usual, clueless. Have Dr, Spock at all ever been to a family nudist club? One of the first books I read about child rearing was this book, which I found in the local library -http://www.amazon.com/Growing-Without-Social-Nudity-Children/dp/1555990010/ref=cm_cmu_pg__header

Nudist is about

All Colleges should be Clothing option. God is very pro-nudity, pro-sexual enjoyment for all. At creation God made all creation Nudist and gave everyone sexual freedom to have many loving sexual partners. King David a "man after God own heart" had over 20++ wives and concubines and "unlimited" virgins or “single girl” available to him (2 Sam 12:8) (SOS 6:8). inkaboutit4ucom

 

God is very pro-nudity, pro-sexual enjoyment for all. At creation God made all creation Nudist and gave everyone sexual freedom to have many loving sexual partners. King David a "man after God own heart" had over 20++ wives and concubines and "unlimited" virgins or “single girl” available to him (2 Sam 12:8). I can prove it. Where did he get this? Answer:  From God himself. God himself gave 100% creation unlimited sex partners over a life time , at creation. Just like King David and King Solomon and to everyone. King Solomon ,the “wisest man on earth” from God give wisdom. He  had over 1000++ wives and concubine and "unlimited" amount of virgin available to him. (SOS 6:8) Where did he get this? Answer: From God at creation. God gave this to all creation at creation. To you and me also, to all creation, then and now.

They have the wrong definition for the word Fornication in the Bible. They wrongly define fornication as “single sex” or sex outside of a “one man one women” marriage. TOTALLY WRONG DEFINITION. Fornication should be fined as the “misusing of your God given sexual freedom of unlimited sex partners (that God gave everyone at creation) to join in the sex orgy in the worship of a pagan fertility god, one of pagan Baal's pagan gods, in order to get a promise of good crops and more animal reproduction ending up making lot more money. Compare Nu 25:1-9  1 Cor 10:8. (The Bible defines the word  fornication for you correctly, not some man made corrupt dictionary. Paul used the word “fornication” in 1 Cor 10:8 and the definition is in Nu 25: 1-9 where Paul is pointing and comparison the same thing being done.) In all the Bible days all around them pagans worship this pagan fertility god, both in the OT and NT. This is a major violation of the first commandment and makes God very angry.
