Camp N - Nuvali's New Adventure Camp Destination

If you're looking for a thrill-based outdoor activity while developing your balance, mental focus, and self-confidence skills, and at the same time to connect with yourself, with the nature, with friends or with your family, then Camp N in Nuvali is your go-to place.


Last weekend, me and together with some blogger friends were able to experience this latest outdoor attraction of Camp N located at the eco-destination just 2-hours away from Metro Manila.

Arriving past 8 in the morning at the 6-hectare development, we were welcomed with a setup of the familiar obstacle courses and the not-so-familiar ropes and cables inter-connected to towering posts that can be seen from the road.

At first glance, Camp N does not look so big, but during the orientation before starting our activity, I came to know how grand the area and its facilities actually are. Our curiosity were further stimulated as Mr. Mon Jocson and Mr. John Estacio, Nuvali's General Manager welcomed us, sparked our excitement, and tickled our adventure fantasies not just for Camp N but for the whole Nuvali as well.


The orientation was concluded with safety introductions and briefing by Mr. Kerry Asuncion, a certified extreme adventure Facilitator, who gave us confidence about the latest standard and trend in safety technology of Camp N's facilities.

Camp N has an Archery facility for those with or without pulse for a bulls-eye; an Obstacle course for team-building that can cater from the basic, intermediate, to the advanced skill level; the Aerial walk - a series of varying difficulty of 3-level rope-based challenges set high up from the ground that involves balancing platforms, tightropes, and straight ziplines; and the Adventure tower which is set farther at the back which has 2-kinds of wall climbing, a free fall, rappelling facilities, and the most exciting and biggest roller-coaster zipline in Asia.


The archery was what I liked the most at first notice. But experiencing an adrenaline-rush at the aerial walk, it became my top-favorite at the end of the day. Although shivering, I felt so in control at every step and segment of the ropes and platforms of the aerial walk the whole time.

Using an Edelrid smart-belay -- a much and way better alternative than the usual carabiner system, all 3-difficulty levels of the Aerial walk may be completed by a participant without much supervision. In fact, we belayed ourselves through each course of the Aerial walk with the only worry of trusting our own ability, clipping ourselves from post-to-post and ziplining through the final stage with ease. The beauty of this system is, as long as you know how to properly use and utilize its features, you get to focus in building your self-confidence and capacity or skill instead of worrying about your equipment.

Camp N also boasts of its scenic trails that includes a 35-km. mountain biking area for kids and adults, but aside from the physical adventures, the lush sceneries such as the Greens and Patches that serves as a tree nursery, a demo organic farm, art and meditation center, and camping grounds offers a respite from the hustle and bustle of the nearby Metro.

A week from now, on the 16th April 2016, Camp N will have its grand launch to the public and will also host the 1st leg of the “AXN Ultimate Thrill 2016”, a multi-stage adventure race similar to The Amazing Race. Adventurers will go through intense obstacle challenges in Camp N and the first 20 finishers will head to Boracay for the final round. Only 200 teams from Manila may join the AXN Ultimate Thrill 2016.

So before the summer season ends, let's take this opportunity to take further adventure with the kids, friends, and family. Take those finger games away, let the muscles of your whole body have a wonderful stress and build your skills while enjoying and camaraderie with the people nearest to you.
