Club Policies

Clothing

At Pine Tree, clothes are not appropriate when the weather permits nudity. Pine Tree is not a “clothing optional” club; therefore, you are required to be nude, weather-permitting. Clothing may be worn at dances or parties, but in the common areas, members, guests, and visitors are required to disrobe. Towels should be used to sit on.

The wearing of lingerie or underwear is not appropriate at Pine Tree, but hats and normal length tee shirts often prove beneficial for those exposed heads and red shoulders. Don’t sunburn!

Small children and teenagers are permitted to wear clothing in most common areas. However, they are not permitted to wear clothing in the pool areas. The exception is in the case of infants who are governed by the pool rules.

Pets

Pine Tree is pet-friendly and the club features a large fenced-in pet exercise area. There is also one rental cabin which is pet friendly. Please keep your pet on a leash and under a watchful eye at all times. Pets are not permitted within the club’s sports and pool areas. All members must register their pets with the office.

Children

Children are natural nudists and are always welcome at Pine Tree under continuous supervision of a parent or responsible adult. Parents are not permitted to go outside the camp property and leave their children inside unless they have written permission in the office designating an adult to be responsible for their child. Parents will be held accountable for specific policies for children as they pertain to various subjects depending on the rules of the club. (I.e. swim diapers)

Alcohol

We expect consumption of alcohol to be in moderation. Only those 21 years old or older may drink alcoholic beverages. No alcoholic beverages are permitted in the common area without special permission from the Board of Directors.

Noise

Refrain from using loud, abusive language. Happy noise and laughter is contagious and indicative of a good time. It is always welcome during non-quiet hours.

Quiet Time

In consideration of those who may be sleeping, quiet time is observed from 11 pm until 8 am. Please keep the noice level lower after 11:00.

Privacy

It has long been customary at Pine Tree to respect the privacy of all members. First names and last initials are used rather than using a member’s last name. In addition, it is improper to ask other members personal questions such as where they live and work. Respect for others and their property is common courtesy and insures the peaceful and relaxing atmosphere Pine Tree nudists seek and deserve.

Radios

Please do not play your radio loud enough to disturb other people around you. Earphones are perfect to use. Many people come to Pine Tree because of the tranquility they find here.

Cameras

You are not permitted to take any pictures at Pine Tree without the permission of the Club Manager and a Board Member, one of which must be present while the picture is taken. Many nudists are shutter-shy. Never photograph anyone without his or her permission. These rules apply to camera phones as well as standard cameras. Pine Tree has strict photography rules; ask for details at the office.

Towels and Lounge Chairs

For sanitary reasons, always carry a towel with you to sit on. Pine Tree provides lounge chairs to use around the outdoor pool facility. Chairs are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Please do not remove these chairs from the pool area. We ask that you not leave your towel to reserve a lounge chair if you plan on being gone for more than an hour. While we try to keep an ample supply of chairs available for our members and guests, we need your help to be sure they are available for everyone.

Members and guests are responsible for removing their chairs and any personal belongings from the common areas at the end of each day.

Touching

An affectionate hug between family members and good friends is a healthy exchange of energy, but a loving touch should not become overt sexual behavior. In the event a male member finds himself overly stimulated, he should either cover himself or take a quick dip in the pool.

Emergencies

All emergencies should be reported to a Board Member or the Office. An automated external defibrillator (AED) is located on site and is available 24 hours a day should it be needed. This device is designed to be used by anyone, regardless of whether they are trained in emergency response.

Government

Pine Tree is a Cooperative club. The members own it by virtue of their ownership of a bond. Each summer an election for members of a Board of Directors is held according to the Bylaws of the Club. Nine members are elected to be the directors. Among themselves, they choose a President and other officers. Board meetings are held on the second Saturday of each month. Rules are made and enforced by the board. The President appoints committees to help make important decisions and to help make the club operate. The club employs a full time manager, office assistant, and maintenance personnel. The club functions according to its Bylaws.
