Almost after a month after completing the part 1 of this course due to our busy schedules, we are able to find time on November 10-11, 2018 at Layong Bilog Set Camp, Nasugbo Batangas. The place was at foot of Mt. Talamitam a known hiking destination. It was another challenging weekend and lot of fun even though we are down to 7. It was inevitable and expected to happen, but if you are certain with your goal and commitment to something all things will be in right place no matter what. This training course were headed by Ma’am Neza &  Sir Jerrel who continued the lecture for the Camp Management, Sir Rhynald

For this particular Course your strength and skills will be tested, and your alertness is important since this is not the part where you try to survive in the wilderness. We certainly didn’t want to end up to survival mode, but when you are out there anything can happened, so it is important that you are prepared. You should know how to become resourceful but at the same time keeping in mind the LNT principle because as a mountaineer you should know the importance of nature, so that we can preserve the resources and beauty of the wilderness. We don’t just explore mountains/forests, we should also keep them the way they are and protect them.
