GNI RULES at THE GATHERING

  • This is a NUDE EVENT for men aged 21 and over. Clothing is permitted only for medical conditions, inclement weather, and as a costume for stage performers and theme parties. If you are a first time attendee, you can participate in our clothing-optional weekend; clothing is permitted ONLY during Opening Weekend (for 2024, from arrival on Friday, August 16 until 5 pm on Sunday, August 18).
  • Cameras can be used only in photo approved zones. Always ask permission before you take anybody’s photo to avoid problems. DO NOT take photos of anyone with a red dot / card (no photo) name badge.
  • In the same spirit, red dot / card wearers should not participate in any high profile contests, shows or activities that attract photographers where cameras may be used.
  • The use of video cameras is PROHIBITED. Violators may be expelled from the camp without refund.
  • Your name badge must always be with you at all times and must be worn at all meals.
  • Always sit on a towel.
  • No indoor smoking (includes e-cigarettes). Please dispose of all cigarettes properly.
  • No littering. Please use the receptacles provided for both trash and recycling.
  • No open displays of sexual activity on the “near” side of the lake.
  • No nudity on buses, within sight of camp boundaries, or off-premise.
  • No illegal substances, drugs, firearms or weapons of any kind on the campgrounds. Authorities may be notified and violators expelled from camp without refund. This is a Drug-Free event.
  • No fires except in designated campfire areas.
  • Monitor your own health and report any suspected COVID-19 or other medical issues to GNI staff.
  • No pets.

Before you register, please read our Payment, Cancellation & Refund Policy. You will be subject to this policy so it's best to know what to expect. Return to Top

CHECK-IN / CHECK-OUT POLICY

Please arrive at or after the check-in time found on your FRONT GATE PASS. The gate will otherwise be closed and monitored by security.

Although you may arrive after hours at the Front Gate, there will be no one available to complete your check-in in the GNI Business Office between the hours of 10 pm and 9 am. The Front Gate will not allow new arrivals onto the camp property after 10:00 pm so if you are planning to arrive late, please be sure to arrive before 10:00 pm or plan to arrive the following morning after 9 am, then come to the GNI Business Office to complete your check-in.

Check out time any day of the week is 11:00 am. Attendees who will be departing any day of the week other than ending Sunday will be required to officially check out at the Front Gate by 11:00 am on the day they are scheduled to leave camp. Those who stay beyond the checkout time of 11:00 am will be charged for an extra day at the published rate. Those who don’t check out at the Front Gate will be charged through ending Sunday. By registering for The Gathering, you agree to abide by GNI’s check out policy and authorize transactions to your credit card should the need to collect additional fees arise.

  • You agree to keep a valid credit card on file with GNI.
  • You agree to authorize your credit card to be charged if you stay beyond your checkout time. Return to Top

GNI PHOTO POLICY

Please respect and abide by these rules, question those who may be misinformed, and, if you cannot resolve an issue, contact a Board or Staff member immediately.

  • Those wishing to not be photographed must indicate so on their registration form. They will be issued a GNI Name Badge that is red, contained in a red holder, or be affixed with a red dot or red stripe (a “Red Tagged Badge”).
  • Photo or videographers must be mindful of members wearing Red Tagged Badges. You may not take their photo without their permission.
  • Photo or videographers must also be mindful of “No Photo” zones (if any) that may be posted in certain areas or at certain activities. Taking photos or videos of people in that area is not permitted.
  • Except during certain sanctioned photo opportunities, the taking of photos or videos is always prohibited at all times in the Dance Club.
  • Red Tagged Badge wearers should not participate in any high-profile contests, shows or activities where the primary activity involves being seen by others in such a way that it is impossible to segregate themselves from non-red-tagged badge wearers (e.g., on stage). If a Red Tagged Badge wearer does participate in such a contest or show, they are giving tacit approval to be photographed.
  • For smaller events and activities, especially those organized around photography, the organizer or facilitator may establish rules specific to that event or activity. Red Tagged Badge wearers should notify the organizer of their Red Tagged status so that they may inform the other participants and ensure that the rules are understood. In any case, it is strongly suggested that photographers proactively seek the consent of participants, regardless of Red Tagged Badge status.
  • Anyone willfully and knowingly violating this policy may be expelled from the event without refund. Return to Top
     

ACTS OF WAR, PANDEMICS, AND NATURAL DISASTERS

In the event The Gathering is cancelled, postponed or cannot be held due to acts of war, pandemics, natural disaster, hurricanes, floods or other weather emergencies, public unrest, terrorism, or other causes beyond the reasonable control of GNI, GNI shall not be obligated to refund any Gathering registration fees, either in full or in part, unless approved on a case-by-case basis by the Board of Directors of GNI. It is your responsibility to protect your travel investment; thus, we recommend you purchase travel insurance from an authorized agent. Return to Top

WiFi access is available in limited areas, although the network is unsecured. Information sent to or from your device can be captured by anyone else with a wireless device and appropriate software, within the range of the access point. We cannot provide technical assistance and are unable guarantee a wireless connection. Return to Top

WEATHER

The Gathering site takes place in the Pocono Mountains of Eastern Pennsylvania. Evenings can be cool, and it may even rain, so plan accordingly. Forecasts will be posted daily on the information board by the camp’s main office. Return to Top

CASH, VALUABLES, and SECURITY

Registration fees cover all your expenses for the week. There is no need to bring large sums of cash, although you may want to shop at the GNI Craft Fair or purchase something at the Naturist Action Committee (NAC) auction. Credit cards are accepted at the GNI store and auction. Please leave valuables at home as we do not provide a safe, locked room, or secure area. You can, however, purchase a portable safe at a nearby office supply store and keep it with you in your cabin or if you drive to camp, leave valuables locked in your trunk. Understandably, you will need to bring drivers licenses, passports, credit cards, cash, laptops, notebooks, cell phones, etc. and may be concerned about securing your possessions; you are responsible for your own security.
