Camp N in Nuvali, The Newest Laguna Tourist Spot
In April 2016, Nuvali, a sustainable township in Sta. Rosa, Laguna developed by Ayala Land Inc. (ALI), introduced its newest attraction – Camp N. Camp N is an offshoot of Alviera’s SandBox in Porac, Pampanga – another development by ALI. With evoliving at its core, Nuvali aims to be the top destination where anyone can appreciate and commune with nature while doing unique activities you will find nowhere else in Laguna.
Nuvali publishes specific guidelines for Camp N. First, check the date availability. Second, book tickets through its hotline +63 977 83 CAMP N (2267 6). Third, arrive early at the site. And, four, start the adventure. Speaking of adventure, since Camp N will be launched in phases, the currently available attractions are Adventure Tower, Obstacle Courses, Aerial Walk and Rope Courses.
Interestingly, the Adventure Tower consists of roller coaster zip line (the longest in Asia), rappel wall, climbing wall, and free fall. The obstacles are basic, intermediate, and advanced while the ropes are low and high. The Aerial Walk, on the other hand, are at different levels, depending on the difficulty, and includes high ladder, cargo net climbing, and initiatives.
Packages are also offered. Package A (The Incubator) includes all the attractions; Package B (All Challenge includes ten activities; Package C (All Gravity), eight activities; Package D (Freedom of Choice), five activities; and Package E (Small Steps) with four activities. All packages are inclusive of the entrance fee. If you want to choose specific attractions to try a la carte, this is also possible. Just pay the entrance fee and the corresponding fee for each attraction you chose.
Signing a waiver is a must after choosing the package or activities and paying for it/them. Claim your tickets and gear up. Listen to the facilitator because your safety is the number one priority.
Further, other soon to open attractions include strider play areas and camping grounds for the kids and close-to-nature activities. Examples are running and biking trails and Greens & Patches, which is a demo organic farm.
Due to specific circumstances, Camp N may be closed for the day(s). It is best to check its official Facebook page (fb.com/NuvaliOfficial) to make sure and know when the regular operation will resume. Schedules of operation are regularly posted on the said page. There are instances when Camp N is closed for the day for walk-ins but would allow those who booked the tickets in advance to come in. Also, group bookings are available. Just call the hotline or email firstname.lastname@example.org for the inquiries.
