A Summary of the Mid-Winter Naturist Festival with Morley Schloss

February 14-20th, 2013 at Sunsport Gardens, Florida
Jordan and I am attending the coming Mid-Winter Naturist Festival, right after we disembark from your Bare Necessities Naked Cruise. We are quite excited about it! It will be our first visit to Sunsport Gardens. With over 280 different workshops and activities in the festival schedule, there’s bound to be something for everyone to love. So if you need a fun nakation in sunlight, come check it out!

This year’s festival will be its 25th anniversary. Did http://kors4all.com/index.php/2016/05/16/since-my-early-teens-i-have-always-loved-the-sunning-nude/ attend the very first one? If so, is the holiday today any different? What are some of the highlights from years past?
In my opinion that I’ve attended all the Midwinter Naturist Festivals at Sunsport. Originally the Naturist Society planned the program. At some point, I took over the production of the Holiday. The Festival is now held more days with much more activities. We now have a more “New Age” flavor. For a while, highlights have included unbelievable performances by Armand and Angelina and http://x-nudists.com/index.php/2016/08/04/nudists-use-no-clothes/ . We have always had a field trip to clothes-optional Haulover Beach and, for the last few years, “canuding” on the magic Loxahatchee River. We have drum circles each evening.
For the advantage of those who might have not attended it in years past, can you share with us what they should expect if they attend?

We phone the Holiday “Seven Days of Enjoyment, Development, and Community.” A caring community committed to exploration and growth develops, particularly for individuals able to attend the entire Festival. There’ll be around 290 actions during the seven days. Experiential workshops will concentrate on personal growth, wellness, spirituality, the arts, ecology and relationships. There is certainly also a complete program of activities for kids. You can locate a description of all the activities and Sunsport’s restaurant menu online at http://www.sunsportgardens.com. We usually have wonderful weather; the warmest February weather in the USA.
Sunsport has an 87 degree swimming pool, a big hot tub spa, a sauna, lots of sports activities including volleyball and tennis, a jungle nature trail, boating, a fitness center, and free wi-fi on 40 acres of lush, tropical plant life.
Are any profits created from the festival, and if so where do the funds go?
Enrollment fees beyond expenses are contributed to the Naturist Society and South Florida Free Beaches, the protector of Haulover Beach.
How many people usually attend? Where do they all come from largely? What kind of people are they?
We expect over 300 people to attend the Festival. They come from all over North America. Naturists of all ages, genders, sexual orientations, etc. attend; most are interested in having fun, healthful living, and being part of our caring community. We don’t entice individuals dependant upon alcohol or substances for an excellent time. Sunsport is smoke-free except for a couple of out of the way designated smoking areas.

FKK has been the focus of controversy because we talk about sexuality, so with that in mind with workshops on Polyamory and Tantric massage, would you consider this to be a naturist festival, or new age festival? And why?
This really is a naturist, New Age kind festival. In workshops, there will be talk of sexuality and relationships. Nevertheless, there will be no sexual activity except in individual private accommodations. All actions in common areas will be appropriate to take place in the existence of children. Hugging, kissing, massage, holding hands are all OK; public obvious sexual activity is not. Sunsport Gardens is a family naturist resort; 14 kids now live at Sunsport, and many others frequently visit. We do welcome expressions of loving relationships.
Is there anything people shouldn’t forget to bring?
Bring a tent unless you plan to rent a furnished tent at Sunsport or stay at a nearby hotel. All Sunsport’s rental cabins, trailers and rooms are already taken. Additionally you will want towels and, in case we get a cool night, something warm. A picture ID such as a drivers permit is required. Sunsport’s restaurant serves wholesome, rich meals, however you can bring your own food if you want. Sunscreen can be obtained in the Sunsport office, although it is possible to bring your own. If you are flying in, I propose making your flight reservations when possible.
Are you doing anything different / unique to mark this 25th year anniversary?
The Festival is one day longer than customary. Also, we shall show a group of popular films like unclothed scenes as an intrinsic part of the scheme. We are happy that FKK is joining us this year.
Is there anything you’d like to add or say that we didn’t ask?
Daily ground fees are only $6 for individuals aged 18-30 who have a membership card from FKK (or another naturist group for young adults), a student ID, or are members of the Naturist Society. Please join us for a memorable week.
