PAPUA New Guinea students who are studying at universities in Cebu, Philippines, took part in an adventure camp on July 7.
Organisers from the Paradise International Education Consultancy (PIEC) said in a statement the adventure camp, which was held at one of the finest outdoor encampments, was conducted to encourage participation and camaraderie among students, and at the same time, provide the students with leisure and quality time.
“The adventure camp was really very enjoyable and fun! It was one of my most unforgettable experiences here in the Philippines,” a student, Merolyn Matthew said.
“I enjoyed all the activities, especially the zip line. I am very happy that I participated in the camp because I was able to explore my capabilities and strengths and most of all, I am so proud to have conquered all the challenges and activities.
“The camp helped me a lot to have enough time for leisure and at the same time, focus on my studies. The Philippines is such a wonderful place,” Matthew, a first-year bachelor of science in biology student from the University of San Carlos, said.
The students enjoyed activities such as zip line and hanging bridge adventures, obstacle course, and horseback riding during the adventure camp.
