Ramon Aboitiz Foundation Inc. (RAFI) pioneers the creation of KOOL ADVENTURE CAMP, an Outdoor Education Center in the Philippnes situated at Barangay Cansumoroy, Balamban, Cebu last Mar. 26.
It will house outdoor high and low challenge courses, indoor challenge courses, corporate conference halls, training halls, trekking trails, dining & kitchen facilities, tent areas, youth bunks and corporate cabins. It will also feature the High Element Challenge Cluster, a challenge course that combines both low initiatives and high ropes courses in one, and an Iconic Structure, a multi-face, a multi-element high challenge ropes course.

The groundbreaking was graced by RAFI President Roberto E. Aboitiz, RAFI Executive Committee Chair Ma. Cristina C. Aboitiz, RAFI Chief Operating Officer Dominica B. Chua, Balamban Mayor Ace Stefan V. Binghay, and Department of Education 7 Regional Director Recaredo G. Borgonia.
Representatives from corporate partners—Aboitiz Equity Ventures, City Savings Bank, Cebu Industrial Park Development Inc., and Julie’s Franchise Corp.—wasl also around to attend the groundbreaking event.
We have a 10-year-old program that deals with the hearts and minds of the youth in the Philippines. We have graduated close to 8,000 campers. What we promise is that those who will attend our program will never be the same again. You may come into the program with different backgrounds but when you graduate from our program, you will be enthusiastic, you will engage in various activities, and you will become leaders of tomorrow,” Aboitiz said.

Kool Adventure Camp, launched in 1999, is one of the programs under RAFI’s Leadership & Citizenship focus area, with program offerings that include youth adventure camps, adventure training and consulting, corporate adventure workshops, land and sea expeditions, urban backpacking, games and initiatives, and trainer’s training, among others.
