Naturist camps provide for people who adhere to the cultural movement of naturism--the advocacy of private and public nudity. Naturist camps for children give young adolescents the opportunity to socially interact with others who share the naturist lifestyle as well as camping in the great outdoors. Many naturist camps believe that public social nudity teaches children body acceptance.
