What makes Primitive Pursuits the most outstanding outdoor adventure camp in ithaca?
Here are some things to consider...
It all starts with world-class role models. Our core staff are in the field year-round, honing skills and sharing their passion for learning with kids of all ages. Our summer recruiting is competitive on a national level, and new staff receive up to 16 weeks of training before taking lead roles. We are an organization that retains, trains and cherishes exceptional nature education educators. Even our teen staff includes individuals with many years of experience working on the skills that they teach. The rich experience that distinguishes Primitive Pursuits from other nature camps reflects the high caliber of our crew.
