FREE Forest play DAYS

Welcome to our wooded world...

We invite children from birth through age 5 to join us with a parent or adult care-giver for spontaneous play, exploration of the creek, and moments of wonder around the fire on selected mornings during the year.

Forest Play Days are a great way to have a look into whether a forest preschool might be right for your family! Get out into the woods and experience total nature immersion.

Parents and children birth to age five are invited to join the Ithaca Forest Preschool for a day of stories, stalking, wild tea making & sipping and more as we find our place in the woods at our beloved Trillium Camp at 4-H Acres. The program is free but requires registration. Bring water and snacks; there may be opportunities to cook on the fire.

Opening Circle 9:00AM - Closing 12:00PM

"Absolutely wonderful! Going to Primitive Pursuits opened my son up to a world that is an enormous part of who he is. He also teaches his friends, everything. So it’s not only an amazing experience for him, but it spreads beyond to all of his friends." Esther Greenhouse, Parent
