Youth Campsite

A youth campsite is a location developed to facilitate youth activities requiring accommodation, alongside youth training centers and youth hostels, according to the Enforcement Decree of Building Act. Youth organizations are given priority for use, and it can also be provided for corporate group training activities as long as it does not interfere with youth activities.
Statutory Definition
Youth campsites refer to ‘training facilities equipped with facilities and equipment suitable for camping, providing youth training activities or camping conveniences,’ and are distinguished from general campsites and auto campsites as they are intended solely for youth activities.
Lobin Commentary

The Youth Activity Promotion Act mandates that the state and local governments establish and implement policies for youth activity facilities, youth activity programs, and youth leaders to enable youth to participate autonomously and voluntarily in various youth activities. Youth activity facilities are broadly categorized into youth training facilities and youth utilization facilities. Youth training centers, youth training centers, youth culture houses, youth specialty facilities, youth campsites, and youth hostels fall under youth training facilities. Among these, youth training centers, youth campsites, and youth hostels provide accommodations for overnight youth training activities.

Annex 3 of the Enforcement Regulation of Youth Activity Promotion Act specifies additional facility standards for youth campsites, beyond the common standards applied to all training facilities:
