"My son was enrolled in the Forest Preschool and eagerly anticipated his days at forest school. He spent time in traditional pre-kindergarten programs as well as this special outdoor school. The difference with forest school is the palpable engagement of my child's senses. He came home grinning, muddy, smelling of wood smoke and eager to tell me about the blue jay he heard, the creek he discovered, and the "mountain" he climbed. The sense of aliveness and wonder was all right there on his face! I highly recommend this program for all kids of any age!" T.O., Forest Preschool
"Primitive Pursuits is a fabulous camp. Great counselors. It is actually one of the best managed camps with intelligent, knowledgeable, caring, and empathic counselors I’ve ever met." L.K., Summer Camp Parent
