The art of cooking in Kawayan (bamboo) were taught by the natives living in Subic Bay called the “Aetas”.
During the Vietnam War, Americans used Subic as a base. The Americans were then fascinated with how Aetas survived with only a bolo (machete) and bamboo to survive, and asked the Aetas if they could impart their teachings. Thus, the Jungle Environment Survival Training (JEST) Camp was born.
JEST Camp has since been giving visitors from all around the world a taste of survival, and this is through the ultimate one-of-a-kind dining experience that is KAWAYAN KITCHEN.
JEST Camp has one shift on Mondays-Thursdays and two shifts on Fridays-Sundays.
Schools are most definitely welcome to visit JEST Camp as part of field trips and immersive activities.
JEST Camp is open for private events and corporate affairs after regular operating hours.
