Jungle-Environment Survival Training (JEST) Camp is the most famous (and toughest) survival school in the Philippines. Since 2002, we have offered adventurous souls a chance to uncover their primitive instinct for survival through teaching them indigenous skills inside the mighty Jungle itself.

On almost a decade, our instructors have taken people of all ages on real wilderness expeditions, teaching outdoor skills, leadership, and environmental ethics in one of the Philippines’ wildest and most awe-inspiring “classrooms”.

We Believe that people thrive when challenged

Real growth happens when the answers aren’t easy: working through a new skill, dealing with mosquitoes (or pesky coursemates!), battening down the tent in the middle of the night during a storm. These are experiences that lead to resilience.

We Believe that living in nature teaches responsibility

RIn JEST Camp wilderness classrooms we feel incredibly small, yet our personal impacts become more obvious. We learn simplicity, we develop respect for our world and our coursemates, and we learn that we have a responsibility to all that is around us.

We believe that learning should be fun.

There is no more engaging Teacher than nature with a JEST Camp instructor as facilitator. Hands-on learning in the context of an extended expedition leads to mastery and excitement. We learn it because we need to know it. But don’t take our word for it! Get out there on one of our JEST Camp Courses and be amazed at what you can achieve when you push yourself to the “limit”!
