Camp Greaves ( 캠프 그리브스 )
Place Category: Accomodation
Camp Greaves is the returned place as of August 2007 after US Army Force withdrawal in 1997. It was a camp base for the 506th US Second Infantry Division for about 50 years after the ceasefire agreement of Korean War. An accommodation for officers, living hall, physical activity hall and several other army facilities remained intact, and are considered to be the ‘Modern Cultural Heritage’ cultural assets. The camp turned into a peace and security experience facility, and it is located just about 2km away from the DMZ. It is also the first youth hostel to be located within a restricted area for civilians in Paju city.
An entire building of the US Army officer’s accommodation was remodeled into a youth hostel and it can accommodate up to 240 guests. The hostel is comprised of an office room and a small auditorium on the first floor and rooms on the second through third floors, and a large auditorium on the fourth floor. To fulfill every need of the visitors, the camp offers diverse programs such as Security OX Quiz, making mini jangseung (totem pole), sotdae (wooden pole), camp playing activity, ‘Challenge DMZ Golden Bell’, and other exciting programs.
