Stay Tuned for More Primitive Pursuits Long Island!
We'll be back with more outdoor adventures! In the meantime....get outside and stay outside this summer!
It was an exciting winter and spring launching the first Primitive Pursuits programs on Long Island! Over 50 kids, and even a few of their parents, explored the woods, nibbled on wild foods, tracked mysterious signs of animals, collaborated to create primitive shelters and camps and ran like wild animals at play! And that's not even the half of it! It was a wonderful beginning to building a nurturing, nature-connected community of Primitive Pursuiters on Long Island! Thanks to everyone that took the plunge to be among the first to frolic in the woods with us!

"My son was enrolled in the Forest Preschool and eagerly anticipated his days at forest school. He spent time in traditional pre-kindergarten programs as well as this special outdoor school. The difference with forest school is the palpable engagement of my child's senses. He came home grinning, muddy, smelling of wood smoke and eager to tell me about the blue jay he heard, the creek he discovered, and the "mountain" he climbed. The sense of aliveness and wonder was all right there on his face! I highly recommend this program for all kids of any age!" T.O., Forest Preschool
