TNS Membership

Why join TNS through SCNA?

Thank you for your interest in TNSF, The Naturist Society Foundation.

Founded in 1980, The Naturist Society advocates for clothing-optional recreation opportunities on public lands and beaches. Through the Naturist Education Foundation, they do outreach to the general public on non-sexual nude recreation and the actual rules that pertain in shared spaces. The Naturist Action Committee is the government affairs arm of TNSF, working to prevent legislation and enforcement that unnecessarily restricts public naturism.

TNSF provides many benefits to members. It publishes a quarterly premier magazine for the naturist movement, Nude & Natural, also known as N. Your membership card enables you to receive discounted rates at many affiliated resorts. Members also get discounts on TNS merchandise at the Skinny Dipper Shop.

TNS also conducts regional events, called Gatherings, where naturists meet for fun and education on the state of naturism.

SCNA is proudly affiliated with this foundation and actively support its mission and activities. While not required, we strongly urge you to support their efforts to protect our privilege to enjoy nude recreation on public lands in this country. Joining TNSF through SCNA helps to maintain our affiliation, allows us to request support for our own outreach and advocacy mission, and it increases our opportunities to provide input into TNSF operations. In exchange we can offer to you a discount over the national direct membership rate.

TNS membership has a single rate per household. When joining through SCNA the rate is $55 per year. The SCNA also offers a special Senior/Vet/Student rate of $45 per year. The magazine can be delivered early by first-class mail for an extra $15.
