Rock Lodge Club is the nearest clothes-free community to New York City. Offering a lake, dense woodland, spa, and various game/sport arenas, it has a little something for every-naked-body. The pilgrimage to this magical place is now made easier, and more fun, with the Just Naked Jitney. After many bus trips (and expensive taxis), Lea and Adam decided to create a more practical option for folks to make the trip. We offer one-way tickets, for those who stay overnight at the club, or round-trip for day-trippers. An impromptu hike, yoga class, or other group activity may materialize once we arrive and get a sense of what people would like to do. Before buying a ticket, please see the schedule and notes below for important details. We’ve added instructions in the notes for anyone who is considering public transit/taxi.

- This ticket only gets you from NYC to the club gate. You must make prior arrangements for club access here: http://www.rocklodge.com/how-to-visit.htm. You will not be granted access to the Jitney or refunded if you are not approved by Rock Lodge Club beforehand.
- After buying a ticket, check your email for further information. If you do not see the email, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Please consider RSVP'ing to this event on Meetup. This helps us a lot with attendance and only takes a few clicks starting here: http://www.meetup.com/justnaked
- Public transit and other options: Take the 194 bus to Newfoundland Rte 23 (1h30 min and $12 each way). Once at the Newfoundland stop, order an uber, lyft, or call a taxi. It can take a while for the apps to connect as there aren’t so many drivers active out there. When you do find a driver, I recommend asking for their cell number to arrange a pick up in the evening. It’s more difficult to connect with a driver later in the day. We have paid anywhere from $10-20 each way (from the bus stop to the club) for the taxi. Traveling round-trip from NYC to RLC in this manner, you should plan for 4 hours of travel time and $55 for a single person ($80 for two people). An uber directly from NYC to RLC is between $150-250 each way, depending on the day/time. If you drive, you can easily rent a car with the peer-to-peer app Turo. For car pooling, feel free to post on our platforms requesting or offering a ride.
Meet the hosts:
About Lea: Léa is an hand-embroidery artist. She founded Just Naked after spending a summer at a nudist camp with her husband Adam. Before realizing her love of clothes-free living, she designed and hand-embroidered garments under the nom de plume Lele Vomi. She still loves embroidery as a craft, but is expanding her artistic capacities to include photography and watercolor. She enjoys working with artists to create content for Just Naked, crafting an aesthetic which reflect the gentle freedom of platonic nudity.
About Adam: Adam started Just Naked with the idea that city-dwellers might be open to experiencing nudity within the confines of their rat-infested metropoles. While he believes convening with nature is still the best way to do it, he understands that some people just can’t be convinced to subject their flesh to destructive UV rays and mosquitoes. He studied jazz music before moving to NYC to model in 2013. Teaching yoga and doing massage led him to understand how profoundly disconnected many people were from their bodies. He started teaching naked yoga in 2016, and considers Just Naked as an expansion of that endeavor. His goal is to offer folks an opportunity to shed their insecurities, piece by piece, as they do their clothes at Just Naked events.
Just Naked’s Principles - PVC
Participation: We ask that you are fully engaged at our events. Yes, getting naked is an experience in and of itself, but please arrive with curiosity and the energy to participate in the theme of the event. Another facet of participation is arriving with a clear mind. While responsible BYOB is sometimes allowed, visible intoxication is not.
Vulnerability: This Principle arose from the need to clarify the subjectivity of being naked. A woman going topless publicly, however legal it might be, is likely to arouse a negative response from most crowds. For this reason, we accept that a woman’s edge of vulnerability might mean keeping their bottoms on at our events. For men, we invite you to discover your edge of vulnerability in other ways. Perhaps you cross your arms during conversation? Uncross your arms to feel what that’s like. Maybe you’re afraid of looking stupid when you dance? Attend our Movement and Connection event to explore that fear and move beyond it. If you do not identify with the male or female archetypes, or are transitioning gender, please do whatever suits your needs. Our Builders are knowledgeable about these experiences and eager to help you.
Cohesion: For Just Naked, Cohesion means connecting with others in the spirit of openness and respect. When we do this collectively, we create social unity. In this unity, we are most effective at normalizing naked within the local and global communities. Respect means treating others how they would like to be treated. This may be difficult to intuit, so we ask that you familiarize yourself with our full FAQ.
