“…a verdant sanctuary for outdoor enthusiasts and a haven of all sorts for intrepid individuals.”
In a busy modern world, getting lost in the daily grind and the perpetual hustle and bustle of the city can be easy.
With technology evolving day by day, we have so many things to distract us that we often take the little things for granted. As a result, we often overlook how beautiful our surroundings are and how much it has taken care of us until now. We get so wrapped up in our individual lives that we often overlook what we can see beyond our screens.
It is time to take a step back and relax for a moment. Give yourself pause and reprieve, and start going back to the basics. Consider having a weekend where you can disconnect and unplug from technology and the world. That said, get out of your comfort zone and try your hand at camping. If you have a penchant for the great outdoors and intrepid adventures, you will certainly love camping. And with so many camping sites sprouting all over the metropolis, you do not even have to go very far just to unwind and immerse yourself in nature.
AN ACCESSIBLE NEW CAMPSITE IN PAMPANGA
Located in Porac, Pampanga, and within Alviera Grounds, WCcamp is the newest campsite near Metro Manila. This relatively new campsite offers a verdant sanctuary for outdoor enthusiasts and a haven of all sorts for intrepid individuals.
As the campsite is located in Alviera, it is only an hour and a half away by car, making it one of the most accessible campsites in the metropolis—perfect for short trips or long weekend getaways. While it is a relatively new campsite, it is an ideal location for camping—especially for those coming from the south, considering its proximity to the city.
THE WCAMP EXPERIENCE
A virtually untouched haven, Wcamp offers novice and seasoned campers alike a camping experience that allows them to go back to the basics without having to commute or drive too far. The camp is equipped with clean toilets, bathroom areas, and a wide-open field where you can set up camp and watch the stars at night.
The camp enclosure also has a river nearby which is within walking distance. Campers who wish to pepper their stay with fun activities will enjoy dipping their feet and cooling off in the river.
The biggest allure of WCamp is its proximity to the city, which allows campers to get away from the city, unwind, and unplug without having to travel far.
FULLY IMMERSE YOURSELF IN NATURE
Outdoor enthusiasts who wish to get the full experience of the refreshing Porac Environment should set up camp at WCamp. Welcoming car campers, traditional campers, and even glampers (upon request), the campsite presents a refreshing alternative to escape from the habitual stress and conventions of the city. It features open skies, nearby streams, and lush and verdant greenery—all of which would make a welcome respite from the city’s eternal hustle and bustle.
AN OPPORTUNITY TO EXPLORAC
As WCamp is located in Alviera’s compound, campers can experience Alviera’s unique and activated facilities. Short for “Explore Porac,” Explorac offers visitors unique outdoor experiences for all ages.
At Alviera, Outdoor Buffs can get the ultimate outdoor experience at the Sandbox. This 2-hectare adventure park caters to all kinds of adventurers and outdoor enthusiasts. Visitors can test their limits with the core-engaging Aerial Walk, where they can have a fun racing challenge with friends or family.
Alternatively, they can launch into a thrilling ride toward the sky with the 10-meter Giant Swing. Apart from these, visitors can get their adrenaline pumping at the Adventure Tower. The Sandbox facility also has the country’s first roller coaster zipline, climbing and rappel walls and a Free Fall Jump. For individuals seeking a little hydro fun, the Sandbox also features the Splash Tub, which has 11 water-oriented obstacle courses (such as the Over and Under and the Ball Traverse).
BE ONE WITH NATURE
Alviera has no shortage when it comes to scenic views and routes, offering a grand expanse of natural beauty and attractions, which gives visitors a chance to connect with Pampanga’s natural beauty. In addition, the compound has bike trails that are open to everyone and designed for trail and gravel bikes. Promising hours of fun and adventure, cyclists will certainly enjoy these routes with picturesque backgrounds.
Motorists are not left out either, as the estate now houses the KYM Off-road Track, a 3-hectare motocross course that hosts off-road events and offers training programs.
RELAX AND UNWIND
Individuals seeking quick respite from the city’s hustle and bustle should definitely visit Wcamp. It offers an opportunity for visitors to slow down, unwind, and relax for the weekend. The camp also features wide lush open spaces, stunning vistas, and sprawling mountain views, which serve to revitalize and reconnect anyone with Mother Nature herself.
