A Rhode Island nudist campground put out an ad Tuesday looking for a lifeguard to help out around its campground.

Dyer Woods Nudist Campgrounds wants a qualified lifeguard with “excellent communication skills” and the ability to be a team player for the part-time position over the summer, the Associated Press reported.

“Good with children and families, light pond maintenance, excellent communication skills, and the ability to work as part of a team,” the job description placed on the campground’s Facebook page reads.

The campground president, Jim Johnson, said a bathing suit also isn’t needed for the lifeguard position.

“We’re a nudist campground. We’re not clothing-optional,” Johnson said. “We found over the years, with clothing-optional places, you get more gawkers, people who just want to show up and look.”

The campground launched 53 years ago and seeks to provide a place where families, couples and singles can spend time outside in the nude. The campground has a sauna, cabins, sand volleyball courts and picnic areas.

“There’s really no difference between us and whatever campground you’d go to,” Johnson said. “It’s a family campground and people just show up to relax.”
