Youth Groups at Alta Rios Resort

Just as 2014 was about to draw to an end, Alta Rios welcomed and hosted a large religious youth group numbering to more than 200 where they stayed with us for five days.

As the resort can accommodate up to 300 guests at one time, our staff had no problem providing board and lodging to the group throughout their stay. Our camp grounds provided the space they need to practice or rehearse their programs and also perform their other outdoor activities as well.

One of our three conference centers provided them a place for their religious activities, as it has a stage and a sound system plus a more than ample seating capacity to accommodate such a large group. Usually used by our corporate clients and student groups for their conferences and lectures, it can also be converted for other purposes that the guests might require.

They also had access to in our pool area during their stay at the resort as we have four swimming pools of different depths so groups can do their different activities at the same time. It is also open for our guests to relax during their breaks.

The 4 hectare Alta Rios Resort, Camp and Conference Center can provide board and lodging to large groups for their team building, survival training, as we have facilities for those, and other activities that may require large open spaces.

Team building and why it is necessary

As defined in Wikipedia

Team building is a philosophy of job design in which employees are viewed as members of interdependent teams instead of as individual workers.[1] Team building (which is correctly spelled with two words)[citation needed] refers to a wide range of activities, presented to businesses, schools, sports teams, religious or nonprofit organizations designed for improving team performance.

During its infancy in the Philippines, team building activities were reserved mostly for large corporations with deep pockets to spend.

Mulberries

IMG_5913Mulberries are not native to the Philippines so seeing them
growing on shrubs in a resort of all places are quite a surprise. There I saw these two
kids picking them and having a fun time while at it. With the
help of their baby sitters, they were able to gather a basket full.

IMG_5906Located at the back of the resort near the covered conference center and the obstacle course, there are two rows of fruiting plants. What was just an experiment by the resort owners if they would grow in the Philippines, specifically on the resort grounds, they are now full grown and are already bearing fruits.

IMG_5915This is just one of the attractions at the Alta Rios Resort, Camp and Conference Center in Indang, Cavite. Apart from the nature trail going to the hidden river, having picked mulberries as part of your trip to Alta Rios is a story worth telling your friends and family.

IMG_5895A word of caution: just pick a few just to taste so that others may also get to pick and have a taste of it as well.

Field trips and safety

It is every parents fear of what might happen to their children whenever they are not in their care. Parents are comforted by the fact that their kids are in safe and able hands when they’re at school and is being looked upon by their teachers and school personnel. That changes when it is time for them to go on a field trip which happens at least once a year. It is only up to a certain age that schools would allow parents to act as chaperon and there will be a time when kids themselves would not want their parents to be with them during these trips.

Recent news about students who sadly had unfortunate incidents during their school-sanctioned fields only made parents more concerned about the safety of their kids. Although the Department of Education had made a statement that it is not compulsory for students to join and has an option to instead be given an activity, kids would normally feel left out hence parents are made to choose. Now the task falls to school authorities to look for places that the kids would be safe and still enjoy the experience.
