Jungle Environment Survival Training (J.E.S.T.) Camp was set up and run by the US military during the American-Vietnamese Conflict to train their personnel in Jungle Survival on 1960’s- 1990’s.


Since then the original native Aeta instructors and their descendants have continued to train military personnel, and regularly train the Philippine National Police (PNP) and civilians on this historic site and jungle through the Jungle Environment Survival Training School (JEST Camp). The purpose of this program is to introduce Trainees to Survival Training concepts and Identify the seven basic needs for survival.

These Courses are specifically for Uniformed Men.



For us here at JEST, life is inconceivable without a campfire. When spirits are high, a fire’s flames provide joyful light; when spirits are low, the consoling warmth of the embers will thaw any frozen heart. Fire separates us from the animal kingdom. In our modern day life, think of where we would be without fire. This is why our first Wilderness Survival Certification course is built around the premise of fire and maintaining it throughout the night.

Course Description:

Leave the high-tech, modern world behind as you explore the mountain trails with little more than a knife, tent, and fire under the stars to keep you safe and warm!
