Our Primitive Skills campsite is set in a stand of beeches and maples overlooking the hills to the east of Bryant Pond. Life for our primitive skills students 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 instructors gather wood for the fire 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.
