Action Speaks Louder at Tanay Adventure Camp
Besides the mountain bike and ATV trails or the extreme “mud slide”, Tanay Adventure Camp features other sporting activities that redefine teambuilding, making it one of the best venues for schools and corporate excursions.
Everybody requires a withdrawal from the routine urban hustle and, once in a while, take on the spirit of adventure point blank. And at Tanay Adventure Camp, that spirit of adventure may just turn out to be an adventure of a lifetime. A one-stop activity bonanza, Tanay Adventure Camp offers considerably more than one can engage in a day.
“Building Character through Adventure” is the camp’s slogan. But slogans are just words. One really has to experience it to know. The wise say, actions speak louder than words. This is especially true at Tanay Adventure Camp.
Slide down an exhilarating 230-meter long Zip Line. Enjoy a cool swim in a pool. Sweat out work tensions with a series of physical exercises. Test your level of fitness in a ropes course or an obstacle course. Climb up to the challenge of a 40-foot wall. Experience a new thrill spelunking in intriguing caves. Trek on cool waters. Hike to a cascading water fall. Tour a jungle lane or have a serene nature walk. Feel deeper camaraderie playing a series of team building games. Get down to some wacky fun inside Zorb Balls. There are also other thrills…the more social and laid back kind. Exchange tales around a campfire. Mingle with fellow puffers on “Smokers’ Night”.
But education, in some ways, can also be an adventure. This point is largely emphasized with the adventure camp’s offerings of programs for the development of various camping skills, including orienting/navigation, basic first aid, jungle survival training, field training exercises, basic rappelling course, and basic mountaineering. Tanay Adventure Camp can easily be deemed as ‘the complete getaway’ as, aside from its institutional offerings, it has, too, a number of conveniences.
Located in Sitio Malaanonang, Sampaloc, Tanay, Rizal, the camp is only about an hour’s drive from Marikina City via Marikina-Infanta road along the Sierra Madre mountain range. It is precisely the camp’s proximity to Manila and immediate access to outdoor activities that make it ideal for Family Out-of-town Trips, Company Team Building Activities, Youth Camps, School Excursions, Religious Retreats, Outdoor Enthusiasts, War Games and ATV junkies as well as the best place for Mountaineering side-trips within the vicinity of Rizal. Added to this is yet another advantage.
Supervised by highly-skilled facilitators, the camp provides peripheral services and amenities to satisfy your outdoor, overnight needs as well as corporate and social function requirements to make it an exciting and worthwhile stay. “Building Character through Adventure” is the camp’s slogan. But slogans are just words. One really has to experience it to know. The wise say, actions speak louder than words. This is especially true at Tanay Adventure Camp.
