Primitive Living Skills

All our ancestors had one thing in common: a deep and intimate knowledge of their place. They understood the language of the forest, listened to what the seasons dictated, and responded accordingly, learning how to live in balance with everything around them. The Nature Place Day Camp’s Primitive Living Skills is an immersive, hands-on (and hands-in—the fire pit, the dirt, the stream) weekend program, designed to build a foundation in these ancestral skills, perfect for beginners as well as those looking to ​grow their knowledge and abilities​. ​
