Booking Procedure and Booking of Water Sports Facilities

Booking Procedure

  • Duly completed Day Camp and Tent Camp Booking Form (LCS357a) should be sent to the Centre by mail or by fax at least 3 calendar months in advance (e.g. application forms for camp places for the month of May should reach the Centre by the end of January).

  • In case the number of application exceeds the quota for the same camping date, allocation of places will be determined by ballot on the 5th working day of each month at 10 a.m. at the office of the Centre. (e.g. places for booking in May will be determined by ballot on the 5th working day of February.)

  • Applicants will be notified of the result within 7 working days after balloting.  Applicants who have not received any notification on the 20th day of the ballot month may assume their bookings unsuccessful.  No separate notice will be sent to unsuccessful applicants.

  • Successful applicants should return the duly completed Day Camp and Tent Camp Booking Form (LCS357a) together with a crossed cheque made payable to “The Government of the Hong Kong SAR” to the Centre by mail before the due date specified.  Postdated cheque will not be accepted.
