Bush blushes at teen nudist camps
Richard Luscombe in Miami
Sunday July 6, 2003
Florida’s politicians are planning a cover-up as a
furore grows about the existence of nudist summer
camps for teenage children across America.
State Governor Jeb Bush, President George Bush’s
brother, promised last week to launch an investigation
into whether illegal or inappropriate activity had taken
place at the camps, designed for children aged 11 to 18.
Now one Republican in Florida’s House of
Representatives wants to make it illegal for
children to be naked outdoors without their
parents being present.
‘When we’re dealing with children,
we have to make sure we protect
them from negative exposure,’
said John Quinones,
who represents Kissimmee,
where one of the state’s largest
nudist camps is based.
The controversy over children stripping off in the
presence of adult strangers has grown since the
New York Times highlighted the popularity of the
Organisers insist the children’s welfare and safety
is their top priority and that 24-hour security guards
are on duty to protect them from unwanted attention.
The assurances did not satisfy Florida Congressman
and demanding an investigation.
‘I am also deeply troubled that these camps are
businesses specifically exploiting nudity among
minor children to make money,’ he said.
Supporters of naturism suggest Foley’s motivation
is a desire to find a ‘family values’ issue in his
campaign to win a seat in the US Senate.

Duh. Nudist camps have existed across America (and the world) since the
early part of the century.
No reason for this, as no such allegations are being made – by anyone.

You’re there in Florida, are you not, Ms. Morfil? There’s an American
Association for Nude Recreation youth camp near Tampa. Go on an
investigative field trip and then tell us the local perspective on
this matter, if you wish. Is this a scandal with legs?
Can someone do the same in West Virginia? Don’t forget your sunblock!

But the truth of the matter is that some people don’t see
nudity as naughty and don’t see nudist kids in a nudist camp
as being any more at risk than kids involved in a host of
other, clothed, activities.
Do Floridians have a problem that investigation should lay … BARE …
and should Floridians thank, not Governor Bush, but Mr. Foley for a
tempest in a teapot?
The search for truth requires the courage to accept it.

Yeah, to the cons, nudism is bad while violence is good. How screwed up can
people be. We were born naked, somehow not with guns. Where the h*** are
American values of “life, liberty…”?

Naturism exists all over the world, yet only in America, “land of the free”
do we see such ridiculous sanctimony.

Sounds like fun, but no.

Teen nudist camps?
Why the h*** didn’t my parents send me to one of those when I was a
teen? All those years I spent trying to catch a glimpse of a naked
girl, they could have saved my time…
