"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​
"Advancing my primitive skills along with permaculture studies and leadership has invited me into a world that I would have never imagined had I not joined the Primitive Pursuits family! You opened my eyes to a lifestyle, community and profession that I love and plan to dedicate the rest of my life to." C.W., Wilderness Skills Alumna
"Earth and sky, woods and fields, lakes and rivers, the mountain and the sea, are excellent schoolmasters, and teach some of us more than we can ever learn from books." John Lubbock
"You all do an amazing job inspiring kids to be actively engaged in their environment. Every week, Isaac is eager to demonstrate his newly developed skills and knowledge, including catching crayfish for dinner, collecting plants for tea or medicinal uses, and carving wood into bows. He is proud to be able to teach his parents a thing or two!" Summer Camp Parent
