[SUPER=03-Southampton Co./June 20;]


Republican Delegate Jack Reid pre-filed a bill yesterday that would outlaw camps such as the one at Whitetail Park, a nudist resort in Southeastern Virginia.
Whitetail held a weeklong summer nudist camp for 11 to 18 year olds last summer.
It was the first of its kind in Virginia and only the third "au naturel camp" for kids in the nation.
Such gatherings are legal in Virginia, even for children, as long as lewd activity is not involved.
Whitetail officials say strict bans on sexual or (la-SIVE-ious) lascivious conduct at the camp are enforced.
