Wherever I roam, nature is the only stranger that feels like home. ~ Angie Weiland-Crosby

It doesn’t matter where one might travel, we need the time to retreat into nature when we need a piece of home. There, we were greeted with familiarity even in a foreign location. Mother nature simply embodies the ability to nurture the soul when we wander. We know of a great place to get away from the city and be surrounded by a whole lot of nature – at The Camp Cebu

This beautiful campsite is a place for outdoor fun and adventure plus the comforts of home. And is a place where we can disconnect with the city life and the virtual world and reconnect with nature, with our friends and families, and also within ourselves.

The Camp is a great place to practice some morning yoga and meditation. I can just imagine all the fresh air that’ll come into my lungs and it makes me feel giddy. Even told my parents, we should come to visit the place, also with my kid, of course. We all love the outdoors, for sure we’ll have a wonderful time here.
