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.
"My daughter loves your program, it is the highlight of her summer! Every day when I pick her up, she is happy, grinning from ear to ear, excited to share everything she's learned, or to show off items she created by hand, and filthy with good old fashioned mud. What could be better than that? Thank you!" E.F., 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
