Young Nude Recreation in
The Carolinas

We are a group of open-minded naturists who are welcoming to all genders, skin colors, sexualities, and experiences. 

About Us

Originally named the Charlotte Young Naturist Association, our group began as a small MeetUp focused on connecting local friends with a desire to hang out naked. In December 2019, we expanded to Facebook where we quickly ballooned to over 300+ group members!

After 3 years of nude game nights, pool parties, outdoor field days and a global pandemic, we re-named to Carolinas Young Naturist Association in August 2022. This change better reflects our membership spanning two states and attracting visitors from beyond the region. Our dedicated board members have organized incredible events and established the foundation of this non-landed association.

We are always in search of new ideas and volunteers to co-create the future of naturism.

Join our group today to access a growing network of naturists and exciting events across the Carolinas!
