Camping tents must be pitched at least 5m apart, with a maximum of six campers per camping permit. This is the same as permitted group sizes for camping before Covid-19. Eight people are allowed at each barbecue pit, with permits valid from noon to 10.30pm. In addition, there should be no intermingling between different groups. 

Other measures such as wearing a mask except when engaging in strenuous exercises or consuming food, drink or medication, as well as observing a safe distance of at least 1m from other visitors should be observed. 

We hope that reopening of camping sites and barbecue pits may help you tide through these tough times. Here’s to sunnier weather and more camping and barbecue adventures in Singapore to come!
