Boasting captivating landscapes, splendid beaches, and lush rainforests, The Philippines has become one of the most popular destinations in Asia. Due to its location, the Philippines is a tropical country with only two seasons- wet and dry- making it a famous choice for beach trips and vacation getaways. Although the country technically does not have a “Summer” season, locals usually refer to the dry season as summer due to warmer temperatures and fewer chances of rainstorms.
According to the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA), the warm and dry season for 2023 is expected to last until May. Recently, the harsh effects of the summer heat experienced by Filipinos have been all over the news, and this is why more families have started to think of ways to beat the heat and enjoy the summertime. The great news is, this year, we have more freedom to travel and go on vacations compared to the past three years when we had to spend most of the days locked down at home.
Camella, one of the Philippines’ premier real-estate developers, purposefully develops well-thought-of communities that allow homeowners to engage in various recreational activities and amenities that enhance homeowners’ living experiences.
Summer with and within Camella Communities
Have you planned out your activities this summer? This year, Camella aspires to strengthen community ties through fun and spontaneous activities that families and friends can enjoy within Camella communities.
Every weekend for the rest of the month, a summer-related activity will happen within or near a Camella community. Take the chance to enjoy a simple weekend activity that you can participate in with the rest of your family. Enjoy a delightful and recharging weekend with the activities organized by Camella, such as picnic and glamping dates, drive-in movie dates, food fairs & bazaars, chalk art brigades, tie-dye making events, and bicycles for rent for kids and kids at heart to enjoy.
Take Your Best Splash
All ears from hobbyists and professional photographers! Here’s an exciting activity for you. Aside from weekend activities, Camella will have a photography contest featuring the amenities and community features inside Camella Communities or their affiliate food and beverage outlets. (i.e., Dear Joe and Coffee Project)
Showcase a spatter of creativity through Camella’s splash photography contest. “Splash” refers to a small amount of liquid that has fallen, dropped, or spattered. Hence, splash photography captures different types of water movements, whether natural or with force. This technique can range from waterfalls, mildew of plants, raindrops, or dropping an object into a pool of water. It can also mean capturing the perfect shot for water sports and leisure activities to showcase a place; for example, swimming in pools, kids splashing water in puddles, and water droplets from the fountain.
The Fun in Splash Photography
Splash Photography is a creative way to show fun and document a great summer getaway. Likewise, it is a great way to capture the beauty of community features such as ponds, pools, and fountains. Splash photography is also an excellent way to convey different emotions through photos, such as the scenic feeling of staring at a waterfall, the refreshing feeling of waiting for the dew to drop from a leaf, and other images that stir the emotions and feelings of its audience.

Note: All Registration
Traditionally, summer vacations require families to go out of town or out of the country. However, due to the shift in academic calendars wherein classes are still ongoing during April and May, along with the busy schedule of those working in the family, it can take a lot of work to find a good day to schedule a summer outing. Camella aspires to allow families, friends, and homeowners to enjoy summer activities right within and near Camella Communities. Those interested in taking part in this creative way of spending summer amidst the scorching summer heat should go ahead and make a remarkable splash this summer of 2023.
