"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
"We love Primitive Pursuits and part of our exuberance is for the program itself and perhaps even a bigger part is the amazing energy, respectful child centered, youth development-focused, democratic approach that you and your staff have with kids." K.Y., After School Parent
