Mission Driven Nature Education
"I whole-heartedly believe that the way in which Primitive Pursuits connects children with nature is a genuine saving grace of society. The amount of respect that is displayed towards children as well as each other has been unparalleled in any other organization that I have been a part of." T.L., Summer Staff
NATURE MENTORING CERTIFICATION
While designed specifically for teachers, mentors, and parents, this course is also an excellent way to develop your own capacity to learn and grow individually and implement local ecological knowledge and outdoor adventure skills in your life. It's a great supplement for those enrolled in or graduating from a related degree program, and an ideal entry into the field of experiential education careers. A variety of wilderness skills will be covered, catering to the variety of experience levels present. Program open to individuals 18 and over.
