Currumbin Camp School Opens New Accommodation

Posted on Tuesday, August 29, 2017

Currumbin Valley’s Camp School has recently announced a $1 million accommodation extension to their campus.

The Currumbin Community Farm Campus is an environmental and outdoor education centre and facilitates an extensive range of residential, day, community and international learning programs to support prep to year 12 students, special needs and adult education based on environmental and outdoor learning experiences.

In addition to the three existing cabins at the school, local Currumbin business, East Coast Homes and Park Cabins, has constructed six new cabins with a capacity for 79 people, a new amenities block as well as wheel chair access to both buildings.

With funding granted through the Department of Education Smart Schools Subsidy Scheme and from the Tallebudgera Beach Outdoor Education School, the project is not only a significant investment into the local region, but will continue to benefit students of all ages for many years to come.

The accommodation will be officially be opened by government and community representatives in October with a traditional smoking ceremony conducted by local Indigenous representatives to name the buildings.
