Prior to the camp, teachers underwent a three-day training program at Sarangani Highlands Resort. The training aimed to equip educators with tools and strategies to optimize the learning experience for the participants and ensure the camp’s success.

To equip teachers with the necessary knowledge and skills in the implementation of the National Learning Camp, a three-day training was held led by Reading Coordinator John Jerson P. Constantino.

The training emphasized collaborative learning and knowledge sharing among educators, focusing on differentiated instruction, personalized learning plans, and creating inclusive classroom environments.
With the training successfully concluded, the Schools Division of Sarangani is fully prepared to embark on the National Learning Camp journey. The combined efforts of educators and learners are set to create a conducive learning atmosphere that fosters academic excellence, personal growth, and holistic development.

In addition to the NLC, some schools also continued with their usual End-of-School-Year activities such as reading camps and remediation classes for other grade levels.

These activities represent the commitment of the Schools Division of Sarangani to prioritize education and provide transformative learning experiences.
