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.

    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.
  • Overnight Camps

    Young people ages 11-15 are invited to come experience a week of immersive nature-based skills training, inspiring challenges, and outrageously fun activities under the guidance of seasoned wilderness instructors.

"I can feel my heartbeat beating to the rhythm of a freedom song. When I say "yes" to the beat in me I can let my spirit free... I am truly grateful for the hours we spent together, for the baseline, the camouflage, the sit-spot, the fire, the talk, and the listening. Thank you." Central Fire Participant
"I want to thank you for voicing for our young people an appreciation and way of recognizing the deeper importance of our human connection with nature. This gives these children a new vocabulary that enables them to articulate for themselves...their feelings about their connection to nature." Parent
