The Naturals Club of Spokane
The Naturals Club is a nudist colony that is based in Veradale, with only a post office box for its address, but with activities in areas that include secluded or rented resorts. Founded in 1984, this club has opened up membership to practicing nudists who see no malice in nudism, and who agree to follow nudist etiquette while in the resort. The club plans out events and activities very carefully and way ahead of time, with the purpose of maintaining good relationships among its members. Past activities have included: a “Just Nudes” Art Exhibit, a Nude Boat Cruise, a Clothes For Charity Auto Show, an IRS “Too Poor To Party” Party, and a Lake Coeur d’Alene Summer Camp. Activities have included potlucks, hot tub parties, spaghetti feeds, and visits to landed resorts.
