After the event, participants are allowed to be dropped of along the way going back to Cubao.

There are  nearby sari-sari stores and participants are allowed to buy there. However, these stores close by 7:00 PM. 

 

While PAS will also be having a mini booth where we will sell basic food items such as instant noodles, biscuit/cracker snacks, instant coffee, and hot water, it is highly encouraged that you bring your own packed food for the camp.

What should we bring?
