Wilderness Week

Summer Day Camp (Ages 6-10)

Dates & Locations

Travel into the wilderness of the Finger Lakes National Forest to celebrate the peak of summer and feast on berries! Follow streams and beaver trails, and tell tales of big adventure around the cook fire. Learn to navigate and travel safely in the vast landscapes and blueberry thickets. Go beyond “survival” and practice “leave no trace” principles while we learn to care for ourselves in this wild place.

Regular on-site drop off 8:30-9am and pickup 3-3:30pm. Please leave plenty of extra time to find your way to the Finger Lakes National Forest location http://primitivepursuits.com/our-locations

Standard late drop off/pick up fees apply: http://primitivepursuits.com/payment-policies


New option: sign your camper up to be transported by CCE van to the National Forest! Limited spaces; add $40 transportation fee. Van will leave from CCE at 8:30am sharp. Drop off at CCE 8:15-8:25am, pickup from CCE between 3:45 and 4pm.

Dropping Off at CCE:

The parking lot at the office can be a bit of a challenge with lots of coming-and-going at CCE.
To help everyone navigate drop off and pick up more easily, we ask that you use the following system in the morning and afternoon:

1) JUST CIRCLING THROUGH:
Feel free to circle through the CCE lot if you're simply letting child/ren in or out of your vehicle. An instructor will be on hand near the CCE garden to receive them in the morning and guide them to your vehicle in the afternoon.
2) NEED TO PARK to deal with gear, discuss something with an instructor or another parent?

Please park along the side streets. Dey Street is usually the easiest to access and park on. There will be an instructor near the CCE garden gate on Dey St. to receive kids in the morning or send kids to you in the afternoon.

We appreciate your help in keeping the CCE parking lot safe and accessible for all the folks that come through!
