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.

    So much BETTER than just a day off. Put away those devices and come outdoors for some epic Fall, Winter and Spring fun!
"Primitive Pursuits is the highlight of my son’s year! He loves everything about it." J.H., Parent
"There is pleasure in the pathless woods, there is rapture in the lonely shore, there is society where none intrudes, by the deep sea, and music in its roar; I love not man the less, but nature more." Lord Byron
