One day, quite way back, I challenged my niece on an activity trip to Camp N, Nuvali Laguna. Yep, this was one more thing to do in that province just an hour or so from South Manila that you could enjoy.
Anyway, me and my siblings together with my niece went to Camp N one early morning. Camp N was a new attraction that opened up, which I saw on the internet back then. They offered 3 packages to choose from; and since I wanted to make the most out of our trip, we opted to do the All Gravity Challenge (Package C), which included the entrance fee, Roller Coaster Zipline, Free Fall, Rappelling, Wall Climbing and Aerial Walk.
Our first stop was the Adventure Tower for four activities. We were dressed up in harness and didn’t know what awaited us.
I found the short and long roller coaster ride fun, tummy tickling, wherein I felt like laughing all throughout until the end. I wouldn’t mind doing this over and over if only it was permitted, but alas we were allowed only two times.
We went back up the stairs of the tower for the free fall. This activity was bone chilling scary. We did the low jump and just looking at the drop will make your heart skip. The ate and kuya instructors will tell you to take a deep breath and step into thin air. That was my real challenge… my weight just wouldn’t go on the foot that need to step out on air. I think, I tried three times to walk off the ledge, but to no avail. I just made a small leap in the end. We kinda chickened out on the high free fall and asked if we could do the lower one again instead.
Next was rappelling. Up we go again for the fifth time, slightly panting from going round and round the tower. My harness was clipped, and down I went. I found rappelling a little bit of a work out on the hands and arms, but it was okay. My right hand, which I used to control my descent, felt hot afterwards. It was nothing to worry about, since we were given gloves to wear.
Our last activity on the tower was wall climbing. The goal was to ring the victory bell at the very top. We both didn’t make it to the top. It was hard clinging to the wall and pulling myself up with my arms.
After finishing all 6 courses in the Adventure Tower, we then went to the Aerial Walk site. I was talking to my niece that this would be an easy activity just by looking at the obstacle course. It was not easy. My upper body and legs really had a pretty good work out, and we were beet red by the time we reached the end. Even my rubber shoes broke down.
All in all, me and my niece really enjoyed Camp N. It was an activity were you would pant, sweat and laugh at the same time. A place where you would be challenged physically, but I wouldn’t recommend it for the faint at heart. We were glad that we had a shutterbug photographer to chronicle the activities at the camp. It was an enjoyable half day, which I highly recommend. Are you up for the challenge?
