Social Hours

GNI encourages participants at the themed Social Hours to be as creative as you would like, but in a manner that is appropriate to the theme and consistent with the nudist character of The Gathering. Have fun with it! (Confused about a theme? We recommend you Google it!)

GNI thanks the sponsoring clubs, cabins, or other groups whose members provide volunteer staffing for Social Hours.
