During our visit at Jest Camp to witness the premier of Magaul Bird Park, were were given a glimpse of the basics of surviving the Jungle outdoors. One of a must-try itineraries when you visit Subic!

Through the help of Butch, a 70% AETA, he showed us how to keep ourselves alive while in the wild. Where there's no means of electricity, cooking stove, but only your guts to stay alive and don't starve to death. First he showed us how to make useful utensils out of a bamboo wood.

Here's a clip of our very own JEST CAMP SUBIC Experience

DIY Drinking cup out of Kawayan(Bamboo) This drinking cup made from Bamboo. It was one-of-a-kind experience. Butch showed us to make it with a nose hole so you don't need to tild your head back.

JEST Camp DIY Spoon and Fork - An important utensil combo to enjoy your meal in the wild. Yes, it's jungle out there!

We also witnessed and learned how to create fire out of the shred dried parts of bamboo(see the video above). He also demoed how to create a rice cooker made of Kawayan (bamboo)
Butch, provided tips on how to keep ourselves hydrated by showing which part of the branch should be cut and a water out of it for consumption. As these young branches have water inside it, preserved to keep the branches hydrated. Thus as part of survival, we can drink it's pure content.

Jest Camp in Subic is the home of: Magaul Bird Park, Kawayan Kitchen, Life-sized Angry birds, and many more adventure-filled outdoor activities.
