Camp Glenorchy

If you are in the Southern Lakes Region, we totally recommend you visit Camp Glenorchy. They are incredibly inspiring to us. Designed, built and operated in line with the Living Building Challenge they are certifying under three petals for Energy, Water and Beauty.

Built out of recycled materials from homes broken in the Christchurch earthquakes, alongside locally sourced, natural, non toxic materials, they are a wonderful example of energy efficient buildings, but have gone a step further, building resilience into this fortunate community, halving the amount of water most accomodation places use, minimising waste and operating in a contagiously collaborative and educational way.
