Innovative New School Combines Reading and Camping


CHANGWON, April 13 (Korea Bizwire)The Gyeongsangnamdo Office of Education has announced the creation of a new school which combines reading and camping, with the goal of opening in September.

The Gyeongnam Reading School, which will be established on the site of a closed school in Hapcheon County, South Gyeongsang Province, will use the playground as a camping site with 10 huts and 10 decks for tents.

The closed school building will be renovated into a library.


Local authorities plan to provide reading camps to encourage a family reading culture. They also plan to run reading programs linked to school curricula and present reading experiences combined with the natural environment.
