I grew up in a working environment where a team building activity means a mere outing – eating, swimming, drinking or some parlor games. I was looking for the real meaning of team building for years. I even wondered how to build a strong team when there are no leaders. I observed only few persons attending the event. Similar faces through the years.

It’s the most spacious team building venue I’ve ever been into. But I blame typhoon Odette for the heavy downpour. We were soaked in the rain and weren’t able to maximize what Phillip’s Sanctuary has to offer.
Phillip’s Sanctuary is a family owned 12-hectare farm land tucked in the lush green mountains of Antipolo Rizal. It is named after the owner’s son Ensign Philip Pestaño. The place boasts a rich ecosytem which makes it a perfect haven to stress away from the “concrete jungle”.
Phillip’s Sanctuary offers its place for various recreational activities such as camping, retreats, nature tripping, trekking, swimming, biking, etc. They have facilities that cater to your desired outdoor activities whether with group of friends or family.
Phillip’s sanctuary also provides facilitators who serve as the “trainers” or “camp masters” to ensure proper briefing, guidance and safety while doing the group activity. However, a group must have atleast 15 members to avail their services for free.

ASP Trustees, staff and other families as well as ASP leaders from Lagro and Project 4 Cubao and their families had a wonderful adventure field trip to Philip’s Sanctuary, last November 6, 2011.
Mr. Pepe Pestaño, owner of Philip’s Sanctuary and his friendly staff, welcomed the ASP Family to their outdoor eco-recreation park, located in Pestaño Farm Road, Antipolo City. The 13-hectare property was created this eco-sanctuary in honor of Pepe and Nene Pestaño’s son, the late Ens. Phillip A. Pestano, PN.
Everyone enjoyed the morning games like the three-legged race prepared by the ASP Staff and the recreational facilities like the hanging bridge, monkey bars, balancing logs, tire-bridge and other exciting team building courses, prepared by the Philip Sanctuary Staff. After the potluck lunch, the group went around the facilities to enjoy the different plant life and cottages. Others swam in the pool and tried the zipline.

2010 Cluster-for-All-Seasons Teambuilding. It was just an idea that was being thrown around during the early part of the year – back when we had our hands full with the Sales Kickoff and the BOI application. Finally, though, what started out as simple discussions became an approved budget request 😛
Through Google searches, we chanced upon the Phillip’s Sanctuary website. What sold us to the place was the fact that it already had teambuilding facilities, plus the rate was within our budget.Read more here
