The entire cost of The Gathering and bus transportation is payable in full at time of registration. You can pay by credit card (Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover), check, or money order in US funds. We are not able to take Venmo, Zelle, or CashApp payments at this time. Sorry, payment plans are not available.

Each applicant – including couples – must submit a separate registration form using their unique profile and login credentials.

A confirmation email will be sent to your email address on file with GNI. Confirmation emails will not be sent until June 1 at the earliest. This email contains your Front Gate Pass, confirmation code, and additional instructions/information needed to help plan for your naked vacation. You are not required to print any documents to bring with you. If you are driving, we recommend that you print the confirmation email and place your Front Gate Pass on your dashboard when you park your vehicle to help us identify the owner in case we need to contact you.

After August 1, there are no refunds for any reason, even if you purchase the Cancellation Guarantee. Consider purchasing comprehensive travel protection in case you have any concerns about needing to cancel anytime. If you do not purchase travel protection, the Cancellation Guarantee will not protect you after August 1 when the “no refund” policy takes effect. Return to Top

TripAssure Travel Insurance


GNI’s Cancellation Guarantee allows a member to cancel his registration without paying the cancellation fee until August 1. The Cancellation Guarantee DOES NOT allow you to cancel and request a refund of your Gathering registration fees for any reason after August 1. There are no refunds after August 1 for any reason, even if you purchased the Cancellation Guarantee.

If you need to cancel and request a refund after August 1, you must purchase Travel insurance that allows you to cancel at the last minute which the Cancellation Guarantee DOES NOT allow you to do. GNI’s travel insurance company – TripAssure – may offer travel protection with trip cancellation. You must purchase this coverage separately from TripAssure directly.

Please consider purchasing Travel Protection. This coverage protects you not only from a last minute trip cancellation, but also offers protection for many other things listed above and more. You are responsible to insure your travel investment; TripAssure helps you do that easily and affordably. Return to Top
