Membership and Dues Structure

Yearly Membership Dues are only $20.00 per adult person* for the
membership year of April 1st to March 31st of the following year.

*Families automatically get free memberships for all children under age 18, with at least one adult member.

The SLUGS have a policy of running a background check on all applicants to assure our membership that we do not inadvertently admit a person that has a conviction of a sexual crime or of domestic violence. Your membership application and signature grants to us your consent for these background checks to be performed.

The membership application packet –in the form of a downloadable PDF file– also has a “Hold Harmless” agreement to sign and return with your membership application.

There are a couple of basic rules for membership:

  1. We run a background check annually,
  2. Treat others with friendly respect,
  3. When bare, do nothing that you would not do when clothed and in public,
  4. Pay your dues annually,
  5. Sign and return the Waiver form.

Once you have turned in the application, waiver, & membership fee, then the criminal background check is performed and our club’s Board of Directors will review your application. Upon Board approval, your membership card is mailed to you. It is a very easy process and it promotes the safety of our members.

You will also receive an E-mail invitation to be added to our Yahoo-Groups private discussion forum, where much of our event information is provided. It is a great way to met other naturists and learn more about the opportunities for naturist fun. Finally, you will need to select the version of our newsletter to receive, paper or digital.

Also on our application form are options to join the national naturist organizations at a special reduced cost that we offer our members. We do not require it, but we encourage you to join The Naturist Society (TNS) or the American Association for Nude Recreation (AANR) – both if possible. Membership in TNS or AANR is often required before you can be admitted into many landed club’s facilities across the nation.

Why have a formal membership process, when joining most social groups on the web is accomplished with a click?

Your safety. Especially for those new to naturism, where unfamiliar people and places could make shedding one’s clothes for the first time awkward. Our membership process promotes a safer environment and a community of friendly people. Get Started by downloading the SLUGS_Application_&_Waiver_Form.pdf and start living a more natural life.
