"I whole-heartedly believe that the way in which Primitive Pursuits connects children with nature is a genuine saving grace of society. The amount of respect that is displayed towards children as well as each other has been unparalleled in any other organization that I have been a part of." T.L., Summer Staff
"The experience I had working with Primitive Pursuits remains fresh and sharp in my memory. Primitive Pursuits is exceptional and rare in its employee cohesiveness, support and provides a community in the truest sense of the word! I continue to grow inwardly and outwardly due to the experience." C.W., Summer Staff
