"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
"Absolutely wonderful! Going to Primitive Pursuits opened my son up to a world that is an enormous part of who he is. He also teaches his friends, everything. So it’s not only an amazing experience for him, but it spreads beyond to all of his friends." E.G., Parent
