My Experience at Heroes Camp and Father and Son Camp
by Ardy and Ricky Mercurio

 

    It was a fun weekend at Heroes camp. At first, I didn`t like to go but my Dad forced me at both camps. I liked it when I went there. I saw my classmate in school! She is our class president. And then I saw Makisig Morales. He was a normal kid like anybody else. We laughed at the bathroom. He said he never laughed liked that in his life. We became friends. We went to an obstacle course. It was easy when we went to the climbing things. My groupmates called me Spiderman because I was fast. And I found a new crush.

 

    Moving on to my Father and Son camp. It was also a fun weekend and again I didnt like to go at first but I liked it again. I had bestfriend named Fredrich. We cooked on a fire and it tasted good. We also lighted a bonfire and the service team demonstrated a very funny performance. We went to the same obstacle course and a night trail. We went to mass. I was happy I was chosen to read the responsorial psalm. My dad and I bonded.

 

 

    My sharing:

 

    Just like Ardy, Luz and I had a fun time at the Heroes Camp. This gave us an opportunity to serve in the KFC and at the same time spend quality time with Ardy. I liked watching the kids in the obstacle course because I saw them really excited in every hurdle they face. They do not mind being dirty in the process. It seems like the dirtier their clothes were the happier the experience. I was really glad that the kids learned many things in the camp from tree planting, to making things to sell, to singing new songs which kept them away from internet and computers during the weekend.

 

    The visit to the Batang Bayani Village was truly a sight to behold. There were plenty of kids so excited to help in any way they can to build the GK houses. They enjoyed shoveling, passing the materials from one to another and any tasks assigned to them. It was a great feeling to see kids in such a tender age live out the bayanihan spirit.

 

     I had a great bonding opportunity with Ardy in the Father and Son camp at Los Banos. I discovered many things in this camp about my son. I did not know that Ardy knows how to cook rice already.  I thought I will be the one to teach him in the camp but surprisingly he knows it more than me. While walking blindfolded during the night trail, we had a chance to talk and share stories with each other. I did not know that we had the same "most embarrasing moment" in school. I also did not know that he has a good stock of jokes in his mind. We laughed together at each others jokes while walking blindfolded in the night trail. I got to know more of my son during the bond camp.

   

     We had a fun time doing things together. From pitching the tent,  listening to camp talks, cooking our own food, washing the dishes and preparing for the presentation. We would not have done this on our own individual schedule. We enjoyed each others company.

 

    I am really grateful with the service team headed by Tito Freddie for putting up up a great Father and Son camp. Kudos to all of them. This camp is highly recommended to all fathers in CFC.
