What are the meal arrangements like?
The SUFES Campsite practices a “self-service” concept at the SUFES Campsite. Besides serving food, we believe it is a good practice for campers to wash their own plates and cups (and whatever else they use). So, please assign duty groups to help wipe the tables and chairs, and sweep the floor, etc. before/after meals.
Please also assign a group of 3-4 persons to distribute the food to the campers. Our caterer will be present to guide you.
The food will be served “cafeteria” style (a sort of buffet). The first round, everyone will be given an equal portion of food. For our big-eaters, you may come back for more serving(s) until the food is finished.
Cutlery will be provided – fork and spoons, cups, plates, etc. (remember to wash these after use. Thank you!)
Will there be any water provided throughout the day in the canteen?
Filtered and reverse osmosis drinking water will be provided 24 hours a day at the dining hall.
I have a small budget for meals. Can I rent your kitchen to cook my own meals?
No. In our experience, we find that the quality of food is a major factor for campers to grade their camp. If the accommodation or programme is not up to the campers’ expectations, but the food quality is good, the camp will turn out to be a positive experience for them. If the accommodation or programme is great, but the food is bad, the camp will usually leave a negative impression.
With this in mind, the SUFES Campsite engages quality cooks who provide quality pork-free food at affordable rates. However, for a small group fewer than 25 pax , we may allow their own cooking but this is subjected to the management’s approval.
May I check-in with lunch?
Our SOP is to check-in first day with dinner, and check-out with lunch on the final day.
We advise that you arrange to have your own lunch before your check-in to the SUFES Campsite at 2pm.
May I check-out without lunch?
Groups usually check-out with lunch.
However, if you plan to check-out earlier, special arrangements for your last lunch may be made. For example, we may pack lunch for you to take home, or have it on the way home; or compensate you with add-on food variety for your earlier meal.
