Up on Nudist Peak

Up on Nudist Peak

Formed in 1939 by a group of dedicated locals (includingRay Connett, the self-described “Father of Canadian Nudism”), the Van Tan Club is the oldest nudist organization in Canada. Far from the well-known bustle of Wreck Beach, with its roaring commerce and heavy police presence, the group makes its home on a quiet seven-acre property near the end of Mountain Highway, on a compound which features a sauna, a volleyball court, compost toilets, solar panels, a generator, its own water reservoir and even a pool (though, due to health code restrictions, it is carefully referred to by members as a “fire suppression area”).
