Amidst the age of computer games, Magna Kutura launched the Play Camps to promote active outdoor play, and to open an avenue for children to play with neighborhood friends.
The Larong Pinoy Play Camps are conducted by Magna Kutura Foundation to sustain the games, and as a way to foster appreciation of Filipino culture among the new generation of Filipino youths. The clinic teaches students the popular traditional Filipino street games games like Patintero, Tumbang Preso, Piko, Luksong Tinik and other Pinoy games. The sports clinic features scientific drill instruction methods and a mini-tournament session for hands-on application.
The Play Camps are conducted in a sports clinic fashion teaching detailed mechanics on how to play each game --- and we call it "Eskwe-Laro©". It's fascinating to see the kids to each drill exercise, giggling their way through each task. The 'scientific' methods for teaching Larong Pinoy is something never before done in the history of the games.
Magna Kultura Foundation is using Larong Pinoy as a cultural solution. Instead of lecturing kids on about Patriotism and family bonding --- through "play" we let them experience the Filipino Spirit. In a creative and fun way, we instill Patriotism, and make them realize that the games are Heritage Games played by their parents, their grandparents, and that these are truly Filipino games. We also make them proud to be playing a game that has been passed on from generation to generation. Larong Pinoy makes them proud to be part of the rich Filipino heritage.
