UPDATE October 16, 2023: 

 

Empire Haven wanted to get some updates out for those who may already be planning their travel/vacations for 2024!

 

New for 2024: 

 

1.  In order to book accommodations during the time period of Thursday, August 1st through Sunday, August 4th, you must be attending Sentient.  Reservations will be able to be made online through SentientFest.com (once they are open to taking reservations for the event).

2.  The only non-Sentient visitors who will be allowed in for day passes from Thursday, August 1st through Sunday, August 4th are Empire Haven members.  Those EH members choosing to visit for the day must leave the grounds by 7:30pm.

3.  Starting for the 2024 Season, we will be open to the public from May 15th through September 15th.  We found out that many people thought that this was the case already, so we just went ahead and made the change.

BODY JUSTICE: THE REVOLUTIONARY ACT OF EXTRICATING ONESELF FROM THE PERILS OF OVER 500 YEARS OF FAULTY SOCIETAL, FAMILIAL, CULTURAL, POLITICAL, RELIGIOUS AND MEDICAL PROGRAMMING SURROUNDING YOUR BODY!


We offer a wide array of workshops and experiences which invite participants to embark on a journey of connection and empowerment. We partner with facilitators who are aligned with this vision as well as inspired about being an integral part of our Body Justice movement.

Ethical Nudity: A powerful blend of vulnerability & empowerment.

Many of our attendees embrace the unique option of being nude in nature – but we are by no means “anti-clothing”. Our retreat stands by its mandate of being clothing optional and nude neutral. Regardless of wearing clothes or not – we espouse your freedom to move at your own pace without undue pressure or harassment.

SENTIENT: Alert, Aware and Responsive

SENTIENT is a CONSENT FIRST retreat with an established set of community agreements that each participant is required to adhere to. You can learn about our agreements and expectations here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bT-HqzLfw_M

SENTIENT IS A 4 DAY BODY JUSTICE RETREAT IN NATURE

Retreat location, About the Camp, Lodging and Transportation

Empire Haven Nudist Park is located in the heart of central, NY and now represents one of the few remaining clothing optional campgrounds in all of NY State. The camp itself was created by the Robinson Family in 1959 and is located beside the Summerhill State Forest above Fillmore Glen State Park and Owasco Lake. Empire Haven is a full service campground that features seasonal campers, raw tenting, tenting with water & electric, RV sites and rentals. Other lodging such as Air BnBs and hotels are available nearby as well in the surrounding region but may require a short drive. The nearest public transportation via Amtrak is available one hour away in Syracuse, NY. The nearest bus stations are in Cortland, NY (15 min away), Ithaca, NY (30 min away) and Syracuse, NY (60 min away).
