Happy Nude Year!
We hope you had a nice holiday season, and best wishes for a happy 2019!
February 1, 2019 marks the one-year anniversary of Calgary Nude Recreation in its current form. This means our earliest memberships are coming up for renewal. Rates remain unchanged for 2019, so $10 will renew your membership for another year and allow you to continue to access event details and registration. Memberships can be renewed by logging into your member profile at calgarynuderecreation.ca
A sincere thank you to everyone for supporting us from the start!
New Year, New Guest Options
We had a blast in 2018, and we’re looking forward to making things even better this year. One of the changes is to enable members to bring friends/partners/etc who may be interested in CNR, but aren’t yet ready to buy a membership.
After a successful trial at Volleyball, members are now allowed to pre-register and pay for guests at Wave Pool events.
- Guests are required to adhere to the dress code of the event
- Members remain accountable for the conduct of their guests
- Guests must present current government-issued Photo ID at check-in, matching the pre-registration.
- Guests must check-in with the member who registered them
Dress Code Updates
Calgary Nude Recreation was founded with a vision of normalizing human bodies and providing access to body-positive events for the widest audience possible. One of the methods we will be using in 2019 is that certain events will be designated “clothing-optional” instead of “nude-mandatory”. CNR's very first swim in November 2017, the beach day in June, camping in September, and Beach Volleyball in November were all successful clothing-optional events.
With no expectation of personal nudity, clothing-optional events allow people the opportunity to see our values in action with their own eyes. We encourage anyone who appreciates our values to join us. While some people prefer all-nude events for their first plunge, we also recognize that others prefer to remain in full control of their bodies and process our values at their own pace.
It is incredibly important to us that all attendees feel fully welcome, regardless of how much they choose to wear. Please note that it is not appropriate to comment on the amount of clothing worn (or not worn) by any member, guest, or staff member at any event.
The first clothing-optional event of 2019 will be at the wave pool in February. We hope that you (and your friends) can join us! Registration will open approximately 30 days before the event.
