Summer Talent Camps: A Venue for Discovering, Nurturing and Celebrating Every Child’s Gift


As parents, summertime is considered the perfect time for children to not only take a break from school work but also to engage in different activities to stay productive. As such, we are always on the lookout for summer workshops and talent camps, which can help our kids learn new skills and discover their talents.


According to Dr. Tippy Tanchanco, a developmental-behavioral pediatrician, talent camps unlock many opportunities for kids to explore and learn on their own, which is important in discovering their true gifts.

“Children give cues early on. They can be showing signs of what they’re naturally inclined to in just a few months of age. It could be music, motor skills, or language,” added Dr. Tanchanco. “There is no particular age for it, but we need to look for signs that your child is developmentally ready.”

She noted that if we want to hone a  child’s athletic abilities, then we have to ensure that he or she is physically fit and ready. The same goes for developing academic abilities. If children show signs of absorbing information, then they are prepared for activities that they can delve into.

Dr. Leticia Ho, president and founder of Philippine Center for Gifted Education, couldn’t agree more. She explained that every child is born with potentials but, they do not necessarily develop.They need to be exposed to intervening factors so that they can be developed and transformed into gifts.


These variables include proper nutrition, proper stimulation, and proper care. Jong Icasiano, BSFT. MSc, a food scientist and nutritionist, firmly believes that providing our child’s nutritional needs play an important role in nurturing one’s gift or talent.

“A proper diet serves as fuel for the child since it is needed for his or her body and brain to achieve optimum development. Other factors may include boosting their confidence, good hygiene, enough sleep, and giving them a venue to shine brightly and further explore their full potential,” Icasiano added.

This is where the PROMIL® Four i-Shine® Talent Camp 6 comes in. Now on its sixth season, it featured four intensive workshops, under the mentorship of experts in the field of arts, engineering, dance, and music, such as Teacher Robert Alejandro, Teacher Lei Sta. Maria, Maestro Ryan Cayabyab, and Teacher Georcelle Sy, respectively. These camps ran, simultaneously, from April 2 to May 3 in different locations in Metro Manila.


As its culminating activity, all the participants of the four camps showcased what they learned in a recital, held recently at the Kia Theater. It also gathered the parents, as well as the Camp Masters, who joined the kids in their performance.

Kids who joined the Dance Camp blazed the stage with a number with Teacher Georcelle and the G-Force. Maestro Ryan also sang and played musical instruments with the kids from the Music Camp.




The kids from the Arts and Engineering Camp, on the other hand, showcased a performance that highlighted their creativity and engineering skills with Teacher Robert and Teacher Lei.

“We are happy to see all the kids perform on stage. They really stood out and shined their brightest and I know that their parents are also very proud of them,” said Yvette Villegas, the brand manager of Promil® Four.

“This what the PROMIL® Four i-Shine® Talent Camp 6 is all about—to help hone, share, and celebrate the gift of every child.”


Since its inception, the PROMIL® Four i-Shine® Talent Camp helped discover and nurture the young Filipinos’ gift in partnership with parents. It is initiated by PROMIL® Four, a milk brand, specially formulated for children above three years old. It is also the only brand that contains NUTRISSENTIALS®—the combination of the unique and important nutrients that help support mental and physical development to help Nurture the Gift, together with balanced diet and healthy lifestyle.
