COMMUNITY AMENITIES FUND $600,000.
The Ngamuwahine Learning Education Outside the Classroom Lodge is situated 25 kms from Tauranga City on the edge of the Kaimai / Mamaku Forest Park. The lodge is used by over 3,000 people annually. Demand for the Lodge is high so the Ngamuwahine Trust embarked on a major building project to extend the current facility to allow greater community use.
With funding from TECT’s Community Amenities Fund ($600,000), the project started in May 2013 and the Camp now boasts an extra-large multipurpose room, a commercial kitchen, eight additional twin bedrooms and bathroom facilities. The lodge now has capacity for 90 overnight and 150 daytime visitors.
Regular visitors include schools, kindergartens, rotary youth, rotary service clubs, Scouts, Girl Guides, church groups, Canteen, sports groups, Youth Search & Rescue, NZ Police, and Civil Defence.
