iCross at Camp Benjamin

Once in a while, a person must take time to rest and let his mind be free from worries. Resting serves to renew tired souls and enable us to sharpen our saw. That is what our team did on September 13 and 14, 2012. We took time off from work to experience iCross Program at Camp Benjamin in Alfonso, Cavite. This program was developed by the creative team led by Francis De Vera.
I took also the opportunity to explore this part of south western Cavite by bicycle.
Camp Benjamin's Team Building Program gave the team a new perspective in our work. It helped us how to trust and openly communicate with one another.
Taking time off from work and attending the iCross Program is well worth it. I felt a sudden renewed energy, ready to take on new challenges.
