A Montana Democrat running for Congress is also a popular performer at a nudist camp, the Washington Free Beacon reports.

Rob Quist, seeking a congressional seat in the state, is a frequent performer at Idaho’s Sun Meadow Resort, which features nudists looking for a “family nudist experience.” Quist is in the centerpiece of the nudist resort’s website that promises he will perform with his daughter, who is also exhibited as a singer. The duo are not advertised naked, though the website is replete with others who are.

The nudist camp is providing this degree of publicity now as it has in the past, as Quist has been a prominent performer at the nudist resort.

Quist first gained renown at the nudist resort in 2009, when he played at the second annual “Skin to the Wind Festival of Fun” that was designed to set a record for the biggest skinny dip ever attempted in North America.

He performed at the “Festival of Fun,” that featured “Friday night volleyball, homemade soup, salad bar and homemade bread, and a DJ dance.”

Quist was back at the nudist camp for a 2011 concert with daughter Halladay Quist, according to the American Association for Nude Recreation newsletters, and had another encore with the fifth annual “Skin to the Wind Festival of Fun,” which also featured the “now-famous pot luck chocolate feast.”

If there was any doubt about Quist’s desire to play at the nudist camp, he was back in 2014 with this daughter, who is still a regular at the resort, as she says on her website.

Neither Quist nor his campaign are responding to questions from the Free Beacon about his performances at Sun Meadow. The resort did not reply to questions to about Quist’s prominent role in their cavalcades over the years.

The Sun Meadow performances coincide with period’s in Quist’s life when he said he was “unable to work” due to “significant health problems” that were allegedly the result of an unsuccessful gall bladder surgery in 1996.

Pictures posted on the nudist camp’s website depict concert goers sitting naked on metal chairs. It is not known if Quist was performing for them in a similarly unclothed fashion.

The park also offers its guest an experience in nude volleyball, nude kite-flying and nude archery. They can even try cross-country skiing without clothes, weather permitting.

The resort offers nudists the first day free at the resort, where participants can choose to rent cabins or hook-up their RVs and campers. Guests can also buy land at the site after purchasing a lifetime membership with the resort.
