Calendar of Past Events

Activities from previous years' calendars illustrating the kinds of events Bare Buns hosts year-round

"Upon reflection, I have nothing to add to the positive comments posted on your web site, just 'ditto'. My wife and I (and 5 year old — but I'd expect as much) thoroughly enjoyed the evening with y'all. I dare say, I really enjoyed the wally-ball game — that was just too much fun — everyone was such a good sport. We will join — and watch carefully for future events."

— Pete and Mai Kelly, Winchester, VA

"It went great!! Except my buns are burning. It was so much fun and sooo relaxing. When's the canoe trip?"

— Andrea Daniels, a single mom from Leesburg, Virginia when asked about her first-ever Nudist adventure, a sailing trip with Bare Buns
