Go trekking or hiking.

Volunteer.

What better way to spend the summer than to devote a couple of hours to service? There are plenty of different charities and non-government organizations you can support or contribute to. If you’re an animal lover, reach out to the Philippine Animal Welfare Society (PAWS) to find out how you can help their cause. You can also check out the Marine Conservation Philippines if you're passioante about helping clean up the country’s coasts and marine wildlife conservation.

Go camping (or try its fancier version: glamping).

Camping is another great way to connect with nature and make the most out of cool summer nights or balmy summer afternoons. Sometimes all it takes is a two-day retreat for you to feel recharged and ready to take on city life again. Of course, there’s no shame in admitting you aren’t fond of roughing it outdoors. In this case, glamping may be for you!

 

 

Attend workshops.

Why not make your summer fun but productive? Learn a new skill or take up a new hobby through the many workshops offered across Metro Manila during the summer. Sign up for a painting class, learn how to cook or bake, or learn how to apply makeup like a pro!
