Summer 2021 Comes to a Close

Let me set the scene: A slight chill in the air that brings color to your cheeks and a sting to your ears. Shiny, sharp rays of sunlight slipping through the trees and heating up small spots on your face. Hoards of kids running up and down the grass, talking to one another in excited voices, eager to get on with their day at camp.

With just two weeks to go, we are savoring every moment in the woods together. Here are a few shots from the fun we had during week 8 of summer 2021. Sadly, this is the last week we have our photographers Amy and Joe on board.

We were BLOWN away by the community and engagement our son felt this summer. He came home excited to share all the new things he had learned that day (from day 1!) – as well as show us his impressive collection of sticks, rocks, bows and arrows, cordage, etc. Primitive Pursuits has fostered such a love of outdoor learning and he loved seeing counselors through the weeks (especially Pickle!) who shared his excitement for being outside and exploring. We can’t wait to send him – and his younger sister – again next year, and we’ll be ready for the muddy clothes, collection of sticks, and stories of their adventures each afternoon. Thank you, Primitive Pursuits, for making this nervous mom feel great about dropping my kiddo off at camp each day!!”
