WHAT TO EXPECT?
1. MAINIT. Well, since summer naman, go lang mga beshies. Laban lang and beat the heat with your gorgeous swimwear. Though medyo malayo ang dagat sa camp site, maganda naman yung sand. So be ready sa pictorial, squad goals, BFF goals, ahasan goals, at kung ano pang goals nyo sa buhay.

2. FOOD. The food is just ok. Hahaha. Sulit naman sa limang tao yung pang 7-8 pax na boodle fight, hmmmm hindi po kami gutom, konti lang talaga yung serving. Magdiet daw para gumanda ang katawan at makarampa sa beach. Kasama na rin ang breakfast sa overnight stay, silog silog ang breakfast. Yung iba hindi na nakakapagbreakfast the next day, walwal pa more. May kainan din naman sa labas, but you need to take a ride pa. May mga tricycle na nakaparada outside camp avenue, or you can ride a jeepney since walking distance lang ang Camp Avenue sa highway. Tipong limang kembot, at tatlong Catriona walk lang andun ka na. And by the way, may corkage po and food at alak. Kaya gamitin ang ipinagbabawal na technique.

3. SHOWER ROOMS. Anim na shower rooms lang ang meron. So hindi talaga pwede mag sabay sabay ang 300 guests. Medyo mahaba yung pila, ewan ko ba naman kasi bakit sabay sabay nila gusto magshower. Yung iba maparaan, sa lababo na nagshampoo, para daw katawan nalang paliguan pag may vacant shower room na. Maya’t maya naman naglilinis ng CR ang mga personnel, kaso marami lang talaga tamad magflush, siguro ganun din sila sa bahay nila.

4. CAMP SITE. Instagram worthy naman yung lugar, though under renovation and construction yung ibang part sa ngayon, marami pa ring spot na pwedeng pwede ka umawra, tiis ganda ka nga lang sa init ng araw. Tiis lang pala kasi walang ganda.

5. NIGHT LIFE. Hmmmm, palubog palang ang araw, may pailaw na si Mayor. Tapos umaariba na naman ang Ex B sa naglalakihang speakers. This place is the best venue for party people, pero dapat open minded ka kasi medyo rated SPG sila. So what you see and what you hear, when you leave, leave it there. Floral polo and dress ang labanan sa party na toh, kaya kung wala kang floral outcast ka, dun ka lang sa gilid. More on vintage ang trip ng DJ, at habang lumalalim ang gabi lalo ring nagiging exciting ang games. The party usually ends at 12mn, kaso yung ibang guest gusto pa magwalwal so naeextend ang tugtugan hanggang 2am. May consideration naman sila sa mga natutulog kasi inilapit pa nila lalo yung malalaking speakers sa camping area, para daw magising yung mga tulog at makiparty pa.
