Respect and the naturist charter
In a society where we are seeing the return of a certain form of prudishness, where young people have a tendency to hide their bodies, it is important that every naturist seeks to defend the fundamental values of naturism.
Respect for nudity
Upon arrival we ask every holiday-maker to sign the “Commitment to the Naturist attitude” which represents a moral commitment to respect naturist values. Do not be surprised when you asked to sign it!
We ask our leaders and parents to ensure that activities and entertainment for young people are carried out naked whenever possible.
Some events and sports tournaments are reserved only for naturists who are naked.
Signs with the slogan “Live naturally, live naked” will remind you that you are in a Naturist Village.
Nudity and teenagers
Young children take to nudity very easily, but this is unfortunately often not the case of teenagers. Their changing body as well as the first hormonal developments and associated emotions disrupt and often puzzle them. Undressing for them therefore seems a terrible ordeal.
At Le Clapotis, we are quite aware of these difficulties faced by young people. We do not want to apply “enforced” naturism on them which may block them in future and turn their attentions away from this wonderful lifestyle forever. We invite them to try to wear suitable clothing such as sarongs. We try to familiarise them with group nudity through appropriate activities, for example in the swimming pool where nudity is compulsory.
Respect for the environment
But naturism is not limited to living naked in a community. Respect for the environment and being aware of its fragility is perhaps the core value of our movement. So it seems essential to conduct year-round eco-citizen activities to protect the environment.
So that Le Clapotis remains a fantastic naturist area where we live together and which we love so much, please all be careful to respect the environment.
