Camp Merlion is not your average international campsite. Apart from its sunny, stunning and tropical locale, this 8-acre site is also a heritage complex resonant with this island nation’s colonial past. Located in the very tranquil north-western part of Singapore, this campsite was the Royal Navy School during the 1950s. It also served as a prison staff training camp between the 70s and 90s.The military drills of yore have now been replaced by fun-filled interactive activities that promote bonding with others and teach life lessons so very naturally.
Camp Merlion at Singapore is the base camp of our leadership programs. We also have progressive intermediate and advanced camps in China, Malaysia, and Indonesia that can be opted for by our alumni wishing to take on bigger challenges later for further skill development. The progression of this program ensures steady growth and continuous learning.
Camp Merlion has everything teens need for a comfortable stay with spacious triple share, air-conditioned rooms, attached bathrooms, dormitories and plentiful open spaces. Located in a safe and quiet residential neighbourhood that’s also a quick 5-minute walk from one of the few natural Singaporean beaches Camp Merlion can house up to 550 teens. We can also make special arrangements for double occupancy room on request. Teens are required to maintain their room by making beds and organizing their belongings daily. Common spaces are maintained by the staff on a regular basis. Team leaders and Night Supervisor remain onsite 24/7 for the program duration.
We know that good food is an integral part of enjoyable camping experience. At Camp Merlion, we serve healthy, tasty and nourishing food. Each meal tastefully provides the essential dietary needs for a growing teen. Apart from wholesome breakfast, lunch and dinner, we offer snack twice daily and unlimited beverages throughout the day. Most our meals are professionally cooked and catered. Occasionally, when out on excursions, campers will dine at local restaurants where they can enjoy food from home such as pizza, hamburgers, and pasta.
