El Nido Resorts’ eco-discovery resort, Miniloc Island, invites young adventurous campers, 11 to 16 years old, to participate in this year’s Be Green Youth Camp.
Now on its second year, the camp is focused on discovering Miniloc Island’s wildlife while leading the campers in gaining a deeper understanding of one’s role in the protection and preservation of the environment.
The camp also encourages independence and camaraderie through enjoyable nature and island activities.
The resort’s environmental officers organized enthralling outdoor activities such as nature scavenger hunts, bird-watching, sunset kayaking by the mangroves, and fishing.
Campers get the chance to work with the resident island chefs by cooking their fresh catch and take part in the mural painting activity at the local town.
Prominent resource speakers are also invited to talk about responsible wildlife interaction and the importance of environmental advocacies.
Other activities include nature hikes, S’mores night on a private island and movie night screening by the sea.
Before heading back to urban life, campers are rewarded with a tour of the lagoons and swimming with Miniloc’s famous jackfish and colorful marine species at the resort’s house reef.
