Volunteer Day and Members' Meeting on Saturday

Naturist Volunteers
It's time again for our annual volunteer day. While there are many people volunteering all year, this is the day we set aside for a massive volunteer effort to get things ready for the season. We are told that it is also a fun day that many people look forward to. A big thank you to the multitude of people willing to give up their time to make Bare Oaks Family Naturist Park a better place.

Volunteer Day -  Saturday May 12, 2018

10am to 3pm

  • Everyone is welcome! Lunch will be provided, free of charge, for all volunteers by the Bare Bistro.
  • Jobs vary from light gardening to construction. A little something for every skill level. There will be projects suitable for all abilities and levels of ambition.
  • Non-members who volunteer will not be charged any day fees. (please register at the office)

4pm to 5:30pm – Members' Meeting

All members are invited to come and get an update on what's happening at Bare Oaks Family Naturist Park and ask questions.

Premium WiFi Internet Subscription


Work naked on the web
As we announced in December, we now have a very fast high-speed internet connection. We have spent the last 3 months testing the system, fine-tuning the network, and replacing some equipment with faster hardware. While we've had a few outages for short periods of time, the internet has generally proven to be quite reliable and very, very fast!

So we are confident enough to offer a premium plan for an unlimited WiFi internet subscription. Here are the details:

  • Unlimited data use. People who purchase daily, weekly, or monthly tickets will continue to be restricted if they use a lot of data. e.g. watching videos on YouTube or movies on Netflix. (video uses about 1Gb to 3Gb of data per hour depending on resolution)
  • Priority routing for speed. The actual speed will depend on the quality of your WiFi connection to our network and the hardware you use to connect. 
  • Up to 4 devices may be registered on one plan. With our existing system you have to buy a ticket for each device or log out one device before logging in with another one.
  • Monthly fee: $95 + HST (minimum 12 month commitment)
  • A maximum of 10 subscriptions will be sold to ensure that everyone who pays for this premium service gets what they've paid for. The subscriptions will be assigned on a first-come, first-served basis. After that, names will be added to a waiting list. If there is enough demand and technology allows, we will further increase our internet bandwidth to accommodate more premium plan subscribers. 
Of course, you do not have to commit to this premium subscription. We will continue to offer the daily ($4.76+HST), weekly ($19.05+HST), and monthly ($38.10+HST) tickets. But those users may find the service slows down a lot during busy times if they like to watch videos or participate in audio/video chats. Of course, it will still be much better than it was last year!

To sign up for the premium subscription, just download this form: http://www.bareoaks.ca/files/unlimited-internet-service-form.pdf Then fill it in and drop it off at the office.

But don't take this new service as encouragement to spend more time on the web or social media! Come to Bare Oaks to relax and reconnect with people on a more authentic human level. It is a reality that we need good access to internet for communications and services. Everything is moving to the web. But use it judiciously and with moderation.

Status Updates


Want to know if the pool is open for the season? (it's not yet!) Curious when the hot tub will next be closed for cleaning? Wondering if Bare Oaks is open during a holiday? This information and more will be posted on our new Twitter Account: @BareOaksStatus

We were posting updates on our main Twitter account: @BareOaksPark. But because we also share other social media updates on that account, the status notifications were getting lost. So we created this new account exclusively for status updates on our systems, amenities, and operations.

Twitter accounts are free!  You can install an app on your smartphone to get updates. You can also set your Twitter account to send you updates by email.

Don't have a Twitter account and don't want one?  No problem!  As long as you can get text messages on your phone, you can get notifications by following these instructions:  https://help.twitter.com/en/using-twitter/sms-follow
