"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." E.G., Parent
"I can feel my heartbeat beating to the rhythm of a freedom song. When I say "yes" to the beat in me I can let my spirit free... I am truly grateful for the hours we spent together, for the baseline, the camouflage, the sit-spot, the fire, the talk, and the listening. Thank you." Central Fire Participant
