"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
"My daughter loves your program, it is the highlight of her summer! Every day when I pick her up, she is happy, grinning from ear to ear, excited to share everything she's learned, or to show off items she created by hand, and filthy with good old fashioned mud. What could be better than that? Thank you!" E.F., Parent
