As the country celebrates its longest festive season, the magic of Christmas is now upon us. As early as September, Filipinos gather together to enjoy food, make lists of fun and exciting things to do for the holidays. Christmastime is a time for giving and for spending time with our loved ones, and this is what Christmas adventure in Alviera is all about.
Alviera offers a one-of-a-kind Christmas adventure for the whole family with the Christmas Jamboree on November 28 and 29 at Porac, Pampanga. This unique holiday camping adventure for families is a great way to celebrate Yuletide. You get to camp out under the stars and enjoy day-long arts and crafts workshops, live performances and holiday games.
During this weekend, SandBox transforms into a Christmas wonderland with festive workshop tents, life-sized Christmas displays and numerous parols or Pinoy Christmas lanterns lighting up the campsite. Alviera’s majestic 360-degree view of scenic hills and mountains enhances the fantasy setting.
Packages to the Alviera Christmas Jamboree come in Day Dasher and Christmas Camper variants. The Day Dasher package, at P1,900 per person, includes roundtrip transportation from Manila to Alviera, free use of SandBox attractions, access to all Christmas Jamboree Day Workshops, passes to the evening entertainment, stage shows and Starlight Cinema outdoor movie theater.
