The schoolrooms have been equipped with heating and cooking facilities for indoor accommodation while a sprawling natural grass sports field provides the perfect spot for camping and outdoor activities.

Take a deep breath of fresh air in the quiet mountain village, either alone or with a loved one, and recharge your weary soul from the rigors of city life. Relive your childhood memories of a small rural school while camping and lodging in this quaint setting. The vast sports field is complemented by a 150-person indoor auditorium equipped with sound equipment, making it an ideal place for church retreats, alumni meetings, and other group gatherings.

When night falls in this peaceful mountain village, the city lights are replaced by countless stars twinkling in the sky. It’s a perfect place to recharge your body and soul, embracing the refreshing energy of nature. The nearby mountains, including Pung-ak Mountain, Yong-gul Mountain, Mu-ryang Mountain, and Moon-deok Peak, provide easy round-trip trails and trekking opportunities.
