Campfire Sauna To Paekākāriki

Project 2024-04-20 13:08:42 +1200

Tell me more.

We're working to bring a beautiful 14 person sustainable sauna to Paekākāriki. As new Paekākāriki residents we want to contribute to the community and bring people together through a ritual we get great pleasure and health benefits from. 

Whether you want to slow down, unwind and have some time to yourself or simply enjoy some quality time with friends, the sauna is the place for you.

Inside the sauna

It’s magic we promise. 

Saunas are good for mind and body. Some benefits of saunas include:

- Improved circulation

- muscle relaxation

- detoxification

- stress reduction

- improved skin health

- enhanced respiratory function 

Where will the sauna be and how will it work? 

The sauna will be nestled in the Paekākāriki Holiday Park near the ocean (cold plunge anyone!?). 

To begin, it will be open three evenings a week with bookable sessions for individuals and groups. Sessions will be either silent, guided with sounds and scents, or open to talk as you please. As we grow the number of people behind it and people keen to participate, we can run more sessions! 

When can we have our sauna?

If you all PLEDGE NOW and we raise the funds by mid June, we’ll have the sauna ready for the depths of winter, mid-late July this year. 

What are the rewards? 

We really hope there are rewards to suit everyone! You can pledge as many times as you like. Buy some passes for your mates! Crowdfunding campaigns are all or nothing so no money leaves your account until we’ve met our funding target.

Help us buy the sauna! We’re splitting it with the community.

Turns out getting a beautiful, local, safe, sustainable sauna focused on minimizing waste is not free. We’re looking to raise $30,000 by 16 June 2024. It will need some surrounding infrastructure, a deck for a cuppa tea afterwards and a proper shower structure. Let’s break it down.

The actual sauna - $48,000
Building the showers - $3000 
Landscaping the site - $2000
Building the changing shed - $4000
Building wood storage - $1000
Pledgeme fees: $2,000
Total cost: $60,000

As you can see the total is more than $30,000. We - Sal and Malky - will put in money to match your contributions. If we surpass the goal of $30,000 we’ll be able to level up the infrastructure, Malky has already got some awesome ideas!

Who are we?

Sally and Malcolm came to the sauna idea separately. Sally loved the idea of creating a community asset, while Malcolm had been nurturing a dream of building a floating sauna. As new residents of Paekākāriki, they decided to join dreams to make Campfire Sauna happen for the local community. 

Big mihi to Ngāti Toa Rangatira for having us on their whenua.
