A general view of the Sarimbun Scout Camp located at Jalan Bahtera, off Lim Chu Kang Road. This 12-hectare campsite provides a rural enclave for local scouts. Its design is reminiscent of the ambiguous boundaries associated with vernacular kampong architecture. Completed in phases from 1986 to 1996 by Akitek Tenggara, with Tay Kheng Soon leading the design team, the campsite was initially made up of an assembly hall, a canteen, a dormitory, and 3 washrooms. In the later years, more structures were added, including a 7-storey high steel tower and A-frame timber huts.
