school breaks

Hunter Gatherer Days

When school is closed the woods are open. Turn off those devices and come outside!

TV Day or Let 'em Come Play?

School is out so why not join us in the wood for some epic outdoor fun?

Fall is the season of the harvest and of the hunter! At Primitive Pursuits we are celebrating this bountiful season with three "Hunter Gatherer" themed school break days in October and November.

Each day will go from 9:00AM to 3:30PM filled with fun and adventure for participants ages 6-12.

Epic Day Add On: dropoff starting 8:30am, pickup by 4:30pm @ $5-10/day - LIMITED SPACES, FILLS QUICKLY!

October 9* & 27
November 9 & 10

We cordially invite your children to join us as we harvest and process wild foods, practice our stealth (while playing the games of the predators that walk our landscapes) and hide in the shadows of our own shelters.

When school is closed we are thrilled to be able to offer kids a day to experience the skills that have been passed down through the ages!

Payments above $65 per day/ $5 per Epic Day are tax-deductible donations; thank you for your generous support of our scholarship fund! Please note that a space is not held until we've received payment in full.

*We couldn't be happier that the Ithaca City Common Council unanimously voted to recognize the second Monday in October as Indigenous Peoples’ Day in lieu of the nationally recognized Christopher Columbus Day. What better way to spend the day!
