On CheFoo Center and Camping

We’ve just arrived from our conference from CheFoo Methodist Centre at Cameron Highlands. Our conference went on very well and the people who organized it have chosen the best location and accomodation – CheFoo.

Our room in Chalet number 3

The CheFoo is 210-bedded resort is located 1,542 meters above sea level and enjoys cool climate with temperature no higher than 20°C and rarely falling below 10°C. Cameron Highlands is home to Malaysia’s tea, vegetable and flower growing industry. The centre is sited on six acres of land amid surrounding hills and greenery forest with complete privacy of its own, just outside Brinchang town and 5km from Tanah Rata.

It has rooms for dual, triple or quad capacity. They have dorms that can accomodate 6 to 12 occupants per room as well as rooms and chalets. Facilities include an assembly hall / Conference hall, meeting room, Dining hall, Library, Basketball court, Volleyball court, Futsal Court, Tennis Court. They also have a big soccer field which can actually be made into a camping ground. But I’m not sure though if camping is allowed there. But when I looked at the huge ground, I was so tempted to get some camping gear and start camping.

It’s been quite a while since I’ve gone on a camping trip. I remember that I was only a teenager when I went on a camping trip with my family. I could share a few family camping tips such as 1) you must never to forget those mosquito repellant lotions 2) you must have a comfortable sleeping mattress 3) you must have enough food and water 4) you must never forget to pack matches and torch lights.
Anyways, back to the CheFoo Methodist Centre, this has just been newly renovated and it’s really a very nice resort centre that would not just be ideal for conference and seminars but would make great and affordable accomodation for family retreats too. My Hubby and I have already planned to bring our family there for our family retreat for next year.
