Laan Tau Mountain Camp Residents' Association (1925-) | Special Collections & Archives

Name: Laan Tau Mountain Camp Residents' Association (1925-)
Variant Name: Lantau Mountain Camp Resident's Association

Historical Note: The Laan Tau (Lantau) Mountain Camp was built in 1925, in the mountains above Hong Kong, as a retreat for foreigners to escape the hot humid summers of South China. The camp consisted of a number of small stone huts, and over the years expanded to include a mess hall, swimming pool, watchman’s house and a house for laborers that served the camp. The camp closed during World War II and the Japanese occupation of Hong Kong, and most of the buildings were heavily damaged during this period. They were repaired after the war, and the camp continued to house church groups and other vacationers throughout the 1970s and 1980s. The camp is now owned by the Methodist Church of Hong Kong.
