With its theme, "Handa Ka Na Ba?"

It is anchored on Republic Act (RA) No. 9512 (Environmental Awareness and Education Act of 2008) and Republic Act (RA) No. 9729 (Climate Change Act of 2009).
It seeks to achieve the following objectives:

  2. inculcate among pupils, students and teachers the importance and relevance of Climate Change Adaptation and Preparedness;
  3. develop pupils and students' deeper awareness on the state of the environment, focusing on significant issues and concerns;
  4. encourage pupils and students' active participation and determined concrete action in the protection, preservation and rehabilitation of the environment;
  5. instill environmental values in every pupil and student to motivate actual involvement in worthwhile programs, projects and activities for the environment; and
  6. strengthen the implementation of the YES Program pursuant to DepEd Order No. 52, s. 2011 (Strengthening Environmental Education in Public and Private Schools) and DepEd Order No. 93, s. 2011 (Mandated Programs, Projects and Activities, Various Forms, and Targets Pertinent to the Youth for Environment in Schools Program).

The Camp also features the Kabataang Bayani ng Kalikasan Awards and YES Program Awards. Guidelines for the YES Program Awards shall be contained in a separate DepEd Memorandum.

Participants to the camp are the officers, members and teacher-advisers of the YES-0, Supreme Pupil Government (SPG) and Supreme Student Government (SSG), other interested pupils, students and teacher-advisers of other school-based organizations implementing environmental programs, projects and activities in both public and private elementary and secondary schools nationwide, including school heads (SHs) and supervisors handling Science.

Participation and any award received in this camp shall be credited to the co-curricular points of the pupils/students for School Year (SY) 2012-2013.

Travel of participants shall be on official business. A registration fee of Four Thousand Eight Hundred Pesos (PhP4,800.00) shall be charged to each participant to cover accommodation and meals from dinner of Day 1 to breakfast of Day 5, use of venue, lights and sound services, training kits, certificates, reproduction of modules, environmental magazines, trophies, cash prizes, transportation, honoraria of speakers, facilitators, guests, and entertainers, T-shirts and bags, supplies and materials, and other incidental expenses of the Camp, chargeable to local funds/local school board funds, or sourced from the Parents-Teachers Associations (PTAs) and private organizations.

Just want to report what is happening now at the venue of the YES Camp in Baguio. It takes about more than 3 hours for a participant to get his lunch/meal due to a very bad system of distribution of meals. Instead of staying at the session hall to hear lectures, their time are wasted waiting for their turn to get the foods. Please fix the system. The participants are not adults; they are in their teens.
