You’ve probably heard about the Alvierra Hero Camp– The for heroes-to-be camping weekend in the great outdoors of Alviera in Porac, Pampanga on October 15 to 16. But before you take out those masks and pack up your costumes,  here are 7 things you should know before signing up for this “Super Weekend.”


1. What is the Alviera Hero Camp? The Hero camp is unique for being a training camp to mold heroes. We have uniformed heroes making headlines these days, and costumed heroes are now all over movies and TV. The Alviera Hero Camp is for heroes-to be, those in search of a weekend of purposeful adventure and learning. Participants here will experience the thrills of hero role-playing throughout their time at camp, and learn a thing or two about what makes a hero.

The camp will be held at  Alviera–a sustainable mixed-use estate located in Porac, Pampanga. Since the estate opened with the launch of the SandBox adventure park, Alviera has become the premier adventure destination of the north.

2. What challenges await the heroes in training at the Hero Camp? To start things off, there will be a Hero Training Crash Course for kids and kids-at-heart that involve four main activities. Hero Basics 101 takes participants through a short outdoor survival course led by expert adventurers and outdoor guides. After deciding on a hero name, participants can complete the new identity at the Costume Crafting Corner. Here they can create their hero mask or jazz up their own hero costumes.IF

KAPOW! Hero Combat Training will teach heroes some evil-fighting skills. Martial arts masters will demonstrate and teach defense moves to practice on the spot. Then there’s the Monster Obstacle Course with Aqtiv Archery, where they battle monsters through an outdoor archery maze.

At night, we have a Parade of Heroes where kids wear their hero costumes and can go trick-or-treat across the booths and tents at the campsite.

For those looking for galaxies to save far, far away, the Mind Museum will lead stargazing activities in the starlit skies of Alviera. It’s quite exciting since their experts will lead naked-eye stargazing with laser pointers, and telescopic viewing of planets, and even the moon. Within each one-hour activity, participants will learn about planispheres and astrolabes, orienteering using the stars and learn to identify different constellations.

There will also be a giant screen where superhero movies will be playing after dark.

Aside from all this excitement, the SandBox attractions will be open for visitors to rev up their hero training. That means the Giant Swing, Aerial Walk, Adventure Tower free fall, rappel, wall climbing, plus Avatar One rollercoaster zipline are open for players. There’s also outdoor archery, the children’s playground and mini-golf course to try.IF

Participants as young as four to five years old to join this zero-to-hero adventure experience.

3. Why hold a “Hero Camp” in October? The main October event is Halloween, which gives people a chance to dress up in costumes for fun. The costumes are probably the best part of the occasion. Given that Alviera is surrounded by beautiful and natural terrain that can be enjoyed day and night with our camping facilities, they wanted people to gain something positive in dressing up and changing into costume.

Instead of scaring each other as with Halloween, why not inspire others to do better, the way heroes do? So the Alviera Hero Camp concept grew from there, a camping weekend that is fun and thrilling where kids and kids-at-heart discover the superhero in themselves.

4. Can Alviera Hero Camp participants come in costume? Of course! Superheroes in costume are also encouraged to post their best superhero shots in Alviera tagged with #ALVIERAHEROCAMP on social media. They get a chance to win Alviera prizes.

However, elaborate costumes will not be allowed when trying out SandBox attractions as these might restrict your movement or worse. As a precaution, it might be best to leave your secret identity in your vehicles or in your tents.
