night camp

night camp are truly rewarding. it builds camaraderie from a casual conversation. from jokes to some serious thoughts it all boils down to building a stronger friendship.among my favorite night camps in the past two years are as follows:
1. night camp at the crater of Mt. Pinatubo (March 2006) - the whole night, we were talking and every line from each of us always ends up in laughter.
2. night camp at Mt. Gulugod (June 2006) - we were 41 in the group so you can imagine how big our circle was occupying a large flat area.3. night camp in Bantayan island (May 2008) - was definitely the most silent night camp yet it was also soothing as very few people were on the beach shore. no lights on the beach line except for the lights from the cottages from afar. silent and relaxing. 4. night camp in Calayo Batangas (June 2008) - we played pusoy dos the whole night and ended around 4:00am while others enjoyed the karaoke. the next day, we were still in high energy and did kayak the rest of the day. 5. night camp in Capones island (July 2008) - we were ten in the group. shared something about ourself. ended sleeping around 9:00am, which is the earliest time to end a night camp, because it started to rain. but we woke up 12 in the midnight and continued our conversation till 3:00am. imagine seeing people building sand castle around 2:00am others were playing cards while the rest are having some conversations.these are just some of the recent memorable night camps. maybe you want to share your night camp experience too. all photos here were taken from Capones night camp.

Pietro said...

That's true, night camp is certainly very good for friendship.
Making karaoke there must be very nice and amusing: I should like that experience.

>luke, thanks!

>pietro, hahaha... yes. it's really fun. but rarely sing with karaoke. im not really good at singing.

>kingdaddyrich, hehehe... hindi sya yon.

>hi ifoundme, saya talaga sa beach. kahit walang tulugan okay.

oo meet tayo sa september. pero wala naman akong maibibigay na tips sa yo kasi point and shoot lang gamit ko. basta kita pa rin tayo dyan.

Rio said...

sobrang kukulit siguro ng mga kasama nyo ni lawstude?....imagine, 2am?...gumagawa kau ng sandcastle!! hehehe..

salingPUSA said...

Wow. ....namiss ko bigla ang mag-camp. We went to san Antonio Zambales last March and I saw Capones Island....di nga lang kami nakapunta sa island....

must be nice there...

luna miranda said...

ang ganda naman ng nighscape header mo. i wish girls bond in camps, too. nowadays, my girlfriends bond in spas or in salons.:D i went camping a few times in my life...medyo masakit sa likod but it was a fun experience.

me said...

ooii.. balik na ang nightscapes, sarap talaga camping, with the bonfires, the tents, sleeping bags..tas me iniihaw sa gilid ng bonfire...sarap!

Lawstude said...

hala napagbintangan pa ko nag tetext ni kdr hehehe.

sayang dong. wala tayo dala marshmallows at hotdogs.

ganda ng mga pics. kung wala ako jan maiingit tyak ako.

the donG said...

>hi doc rio, hindi lang yon. naglalaro pa ng pusoy dos. hehehe... makukulit talaga. parang mga tahimik lang tingnan sa pictures pero makukulit talaga.

>salingpusa, naku sayang naman. next time, punta kayo. garantisadong enjoy doon sa island. kung hindi kayo mahilig mag swimming, pwedeng tumambay sa taas ng bundok.

>hi luna, oo nga. spa, videoke, shopping. pero alam ko meron din iba na mahilig talaga umakyat sa mga bundok.

masakit talaga sa likod lalo na pag mali yung pagkapwesto ng tent.

>mangyan, kuhang kuha mo talaga ang nangyayari sa camping. oo balik ang nightscape pero babalik din ito sa mga byahe. maulan na kasi may bagyo pa.

>lawstude, oo nga. talagang hinanap ka pa ni kdr sa mga picture. hehehe... hindi tay naka isip nung mga marsh mallows.

itong mga pictures na to, talagang hindi mo malilimutan yung kwentuhan, mga kidlat na nasa background natin at ang mga fireflies sa isang kahoy.

Abou said...

nung boyscout pa last ko na camping ha ha

redlan said...

na-miss ko tuloy noong college friends after graduation, nag beach- outing kami sa guimaras island. nagtesti kami na nakapalibot sa bonfire. hanggang 3 am lang kami( lupet nyo hanggang 9 am kayo ha). Hindi ko yun makakalimutan dahil first time ko nagsinungaling sa sister ko at first time ko nawala sa bahay overnight. lmao.

Naiimagine ko ang bawat sinasabi mo. takot ako dun sa kidlat sa background ha. lol. ganda ng mga firefly. na miss ko ang probinsiya.

what the exact date ng punta mo sa bcd?

Raft3r said...

the only camping experience i have had sofar is yun sa boyscout pa
man, i live an awfully sad life
hehe

Stanley said...

Did you BBQ?? Hhahaha...I love a good BBQ =) Btw, I noticed your new header. Its awesome!!

eastcoastlife said...

The last time I had night camp was : 2 decades ago!!! Gosh. :(

Lalaine said...

namiss ko blog mo... lalo na yung mga pictures... sarap siguro mag night camp sa beach with your love ones... hayz...

the donG said...

>abou, naku tagal na nun siguro. sana maka akyat ka ng bundok para makapag camp ka ulit.

>redlan, at least once mo lang ginawa yon. hehehe... sanay sa walang tulugan.

may kidlat nung time na yon kasi papasok yung typhoon igme kaya nung sumunod na araw masama na talaga ang panahon at malakas ang hangin. daming fireflies sa island.

sa september 20 ako sa bacolod. hindi ko pa alam kung kelan kami papuntang iloilo. siguradong within the week na yon.

>raft3r, then it's time for you to try doing it again. as i always suggest, sama ka sa mga climbers.

>stanley, no we didn't. that's something that we didn't thought of doing. maybe next time.

thanks!

>hi eastcoastlife, really? maybe try to camp with the whole family. i think it's a good time to bond.

>hi lalaine, kakamiss nga din post mo.

Photo Cache said...

lei said...

Dakilang Islander said...

bw said...

nice shots of the bonfire bro. :)

Did you use a tripod for this?

the donG said...

>photo cache, salamat!

>lei, saya talaga pag kasama ang barkada.

>dakilang islander, you're back! oo nagkita kami kasi mahilig syang bumyahe kaya naisip kong imbitahan sa pagpunta namin sa capones.

>bw, no. i don't have tripod. kaya challenging talaga ang pagkuha. bibili rin ako in the future.

jericho said...

night camp (HK, August 2008). we worked. (office pala toh .. hehe)

Isadora said...

Bring out the hot dogs and marshmallows and let's sing along. :)

Major Tom said...

Nothing beats the serenity at night. I used to go camping into virgin forests so often in the past, in my college days. And now that you mention night camping, I truly missed those days.

the donG said...

>jericho, hehehe.... iba pala ang night camp pala dyan.

>hi isadora, party! party!

>major tom, tama. sana nga magawa mo pa rin ang mga camping. pwedeng pwede pa.

TENTAY™ said...

in my entire existence, hindi pa ako nakaranas ng night camp. does that make me half human? =( haha.

the donG said...

>redlan, sure. basta ikaw. saan mo naman gagamitin? hehehe...

>hi aisha, you can still do it. it's never too late.

>dave, meron palang ganung award. astig ah! bibong bibo ka siguro.

>hi tentay, hehehe... hindi naman half. siguro a quarter. just kidding. as i always say, it's never too late.

Carver said...

Sounds like a great time. Beautiful shots of the bonfires.

prinsesamusang said...

redlan said...

Panaderos said...

I love night camps. The best memories I had were from by Boy Scout and ROTC days. Everyone always had fun talking and laughing around a camp fire. Cool evenings also help make for a very comfortable scene. :)

eye in the sky said...

those night shots stir up the imagination.

Ely said...

the last time na nag-bonfire kami, college pa, in a friend's place. San po ba yung Capones? :P
