YOUTH PROGRAMS Ages 6-14

We are honored to deliver an experience of connection with the natural world to young people who choose to come back into the woods with us year after year. From our homeschool community to our summer camps and school break programs we’re weaving our basket of community and connection that has been growing and evolving for over 15 years.

  • School Break Days
    October - April
    So much BETTER than just a day off. Put away those devices and come outdoors for some epic Fall, Winter and Spring fun!
  • After School
    September - June
    Does your current after school program engage children on a journey of self discovery in the outdoors?
  • Homeschool
    September - June
    Our homeschool programs are our oldest and longest running programs and very near and dear to our hearts.
  • Summer Camp
    July - August
    Since 2003, Primitive Pursuits Summer Camps based in Ithaca, NY have brought amazing outdoor experiences to kids and teens in the Finger Lakes area and beyond.
