School Camps in Malaysia
Fuze Ecoteer run rainforest school camps at several locations throughout Malaysia. We can adjust the content of the school camps to suit many different age groups and purposes. For example we have run school camps for primary aged children as young as 8 years old to service learning programmes for university students. Amongst the more popular programmes are team building, motivation camps, Duke of Edinburgh Adventurous Journey and group volunteer service projects. You can find out more about our regular rainforest school camp locations below.

Just 2 hours from KL and Penang, Ipoh is well placed for back to nature school camps. We recommend Ipoh to younger Ecoteers with programmes focused towards team building, motivation and communication games. However all programmes finish with a slice of adventure.
Accommodation at Ipoh is in a nice, safe & secured facility. Rooms are dormitory style but can also be camping if required.
The closest hospital is KJP Ipoh, a private hospital 20 minutes away from the accommodation. All staff are first aid trained and an emergency vehicle will be present.
Belum-Temenggor is in the northern half of Peninsular Malaysia. The area if famous for its man made lake and for being the wildest back to nature area in Peninsular Malaysia. Its home to the largest wild populations of Malayan Tigers, Sun bears, Hornbills and more. The area is also home to over 5,000 indigenous people from the Jahai and Termiar groups.
The accommodation at our Belum site is varied, we can organise for you to go camping or stay at a 4 star hotel. If you fancy something a bit different then why not try out the houseboats.
There is an army base next to the accommodations. The base has all the equipment to deal with medical emergencies. We provide evacuation boats for activities away from Banding Island.

FE recommends Merapoh for a wild introduction to the forest for students aged 12 to 15. We always involve an element of rainforest conservation and also an adventure activity such as caving and abseiling. FE introduces the rainforest and the Bateq people who are semi nomadic people and have lots to teach us about the rainforest.
At Merapoh there are different accommodation types available. There is a large camping ground on the edge of Taman Negara, houses we rent for groups in Merapoh and a 2 star hotel in Gua Musang 30 minutes away.
There is a good government hospital at Gua Musang which is 2 minutes away from the hotel we use and 30 minutes from Merapoh where the activities take place and other accommodations are located.
Taman Negara, which directly translate into the National Park, was the first national park in Malaysia. It is located in 3 states and Fuze Ecoteer works at Merapoh which is the western gate. Merapoh is famous for the Sungai Yu Wildlife corridor which is the last wildlife corridor between Taman Negara and the main mountain range in Malaysia, The Titiwangsa Range.
