Exploring the creek

Join CMEN celebrating Fall at the CMEN Tennessee Fall Gathering September 13-22, 2024 at Whispering Oaks Retreat Center in Tennessee.

Come and enjoy lots of warm naked men in the new heated swimming pool. There will be plenty of activities during this week and there will be time for the pool, hot tub, workshops and playshops, evening shows, hikes, nature walks, a chance to enjoy the private creek, and much more. Whispering Oaks Retreat Center is located in a natural scenic wooded environment in Tennessee.

NOTE:  Proof of full Covid-19 vaccinations, with booster(s), will be required to enter the camp, NO exceptions.

There are many housing options at Whispering Oaks, including bunk cabins, two-person private cabins, RV spaces, and tent camping areas. And there are always hot showers nearby.

We will have transportation available from the Nashville Airport (shuttle schedule on registration form). Also, the weather in late September is usually mild, with highs in the low to mid 80s and lows in the 60s.

We look forward to seeing you at Whispering Oaks. Register early to take advantage of early bird pricing, don’t miss this great CMEN week at Whispering Oaks!

Social Hour & Evening Themes

Among the highlights of each day at the CMEN gatherings are the late afternoon social hour parties and evening events.

Just for fun, the social hour parties and evening events have a different theme each day. While nudity is still the overall rule, gathering attendees are encouraged (but not required) to wear accessories that correspond to the theme for the social hour and evening. Social hour “costumes” can range from a simple cap or hat to the outlandish.

  • Friday, Sept 15 – White party
  • Saturday, Sept 16-  Pink party
  • Sunday, Sept 17 – Red party
  • Monday, Sept 18 – Orange party
