Back in the early days, the Digos was a watercourse, this is a meeting place of inhabitants belonging to the Austronesians settled along the southern foothills of Mt. Apo. The Digos River meets the Davao Gulf and it is ideal for fishing and bathing.

Also During the Spanish Era, a group of natives carrying bows and arrows were approached by some Spaniards traversing the very fertile tracks of land in Davao. One Lopez Jaena Pacheco, a conquistador during the administration of Governor Claveria serving as the head of the group, inquired about the name of the place from the barefooted natives. Believing that the Spaniards were asking where they were bound to, the natives answered "Padigus", which means "to take a bathe". Since then the place was identified as Digos.

As a portion of the "food bowl" of the province of Davao del Sur, otherwise known as the Padada Valley, Digos lured many migrants, majority of whom came from the Visayas and Ilocos regions to settle permanently in the area. Before World War II, an enterprising American by the name of N.E. Crumb leased 10.24 km² and transformed the place into an Abaca Plantation. This became the hub of economic activity in the locality during those days.

We all have grown and experienced camping – going to the forest, cooking meals in impossible situations and staying inside tents. We do all of these just to experience the outdoor first hand. However, if one thinks about it, old school camping is not at all that fun especially if there are no sports and games to keep the campers occupied. If you want to have a camping experience plus loads and loads of adventures, then Camp Sabros is definitely the most commendable place for you. Imagine staying in up in the highlands of Kapatagan in Digos City and be enveloped in fog as you traverse through walkways lined with pines. This is surely something you thought you would only see in television. More than the ambience, one major reason why the place has been able to gather many avid fans is because of its zipline facility. Yes, it is indeed a very marvelous experience to zip through thick foliage of pines and see a panoramic view of green luscious forest. Truly, this is something that is difficult to forget.]
