Tioman's setting is ideal for summer camp activities. We have a friendly jungle, absolutely brimming with life and a balmy crystal-clear sea that's calm most of the year. To top it off, we have miles and miles of coconut tree-peppered, white sandy beaches.

All of this within arm's reach. Best of all, we have great accommodation options at our disposal too, for a wide variety of budgets. Summer camp doesn't necessarily mean that everybody has to slog it out in a hot room without aircon after all. Although this is an option for parents that prefer this route, given the number basic chalets available in Tioman.
So, if you're a parent in the concrete jungle of KL or Singapore and you're dreading the seemingly endless summer holiday period, then what better way to make the days rush by for your kids than a back-to-back blur of adventure, excitement, fun, games and all-round camaraderie at a Tioman summer camp?

In fact, given the accessibility of our distinct types of unique environments, "adventure camp" would be a more appropriate term. As it happens, here in Tioman, we go beyond the more familiar activities like volleyball, tug-of-war, egg-race etc, the kind of events you may come across at the more run-of-the-mill Summercamps.
Whilst these more traditional activities can be decent fun too, thatnks to Tioman's castaway-type wilderness, kids not only get to spend more time in the breezy outdoors, but things also tend to have a bit more of an adventurous angle than in more typical summer camps. In short, Tioman's awesome outdoors provides a more physically active, confidence-boosting and all-round more enriching experience - the kind of excitement kids will be all abuzz about for months.
Plenty of time for fun and playing around
Activities here include kayaking, jungle trekking, beach-combing, snorkeling, island hopping and of course camping. But let's not forget the considerable focus on educational aspects too, since both environment and conservation obviously play an important role on the island of Tioman.

That said, the main objectives of Tioman's summer camp include teaching kids a variety of skills, whilst also stimulating their problem-solving capabilities. In so doing, participating kids aren't only challenged to reach a little higher, but they also learn to be comfortable operating as a group outside of the usual confines of an urban environment. A Tioman summer camp is the ideal counterpart to live in the concrete jungle.
Generally, by mastering the various summer camp's character-building and communally-spirited activities, the vast majority of participating children don't only come away with added self-confidence and a more comprehensive sense of the importance of teamwork, but improved social and physical skills as well. In fact, whilst the benefit that children get from attending a summer camp cannot be measured as such, educators worldwide tend to agree that a summer camp experience is a personal enrichment that becomes especially manifest as kids grow to adulthood.
Tioman summer camp, not your ordinary summer camp.
N.B: given the various water-based activities, please ensure your kid(s) can swim and do not have water phobia.
