How do you decide if your child is ready for a camp if he/she has never been to a camp? Trust the Scout Masters.
Some may not realize just how good the experience camping really is. Camping is a creative, educational, and cooperative outdoor living experience. It contributes significantly to physical, mental, spiritual, and social growth of it’s campers.
The Children’s Ark Preparatory School held a Day Camp last March 27 at the La Mesa Dam Ecopark in Quezon City. The Ecopark is an ecological nature reserve site which is part of the Angat-Ipo-La Mesa water system — the dam which supplies most of the water supply in Metro Manila.
A nice and cool place to walk around and commune with nature, the Ecopark is a great venue for camping. Our day camp was under the guidance of Teachers Kellie Grace Santos and Jona Biescas, our Scout Masters. Some of the activities include hiking, knot tying, mapping, neckerchief knots and folds, and other leadership skills training.
Our Scouts have come together to have fun and at the same time have a sense of independence as they try new adventures away from home.
