Primitive Path signOur Primitive campsite, “Split Rock” sits among beeches and maples overlooking Lake Christopher. Life for our primitive skills campers is far removed from the bustle of the modern world. Imagine the thrill of waking up to the sound of birdsong in a comfortable, dry shelter you built from natural materials the previous day! Working together, your small band of companions and two counselors gather firewood while someone starts a “friction fire” with a bow drill. Become attuned to the cycles of nature by practicing the skills and earth-based wisdom of native peoples. Come prepared to be physically active all week, and to immerse yourself in the experience of living closely with the earth.
