COVID-19 and Our Programs

Hello friends, family, and community of Primitive Instincts YNP!

This is Ms. Cat, owner and Executive Director. First, I hope this message finds you and your family safe and well.

As a small business that just began in September of 2019, Primitive Instincts Youth Nature Program was devastated by the news of COVID-19. When the virus first started hitting this area, I decided it was best to stop all programs and events for the safety and wellbeing of the students and their families. I carefully followed the news, numbers, and science as time progressed.

However, due to the severity of the virus during the Spring, I could not open Primitive Instincts for a summer camp program, which I was looking forward to providing. As Fall came around, I chose to allow families and schools to adjust to their new normal, as well as allow for the numbers of the virus to adjust to in-person schooling.

During this time, I have continued to develop the land for the nature program, as well as planted many herbal, edible, and medicinal plants. I also was certified as Texas Master Naturalist for Hays County!

Currently, as of May 2021, all of my family and I are fully vaccinated. 

It was not an easy year, having to completely end what I absolutely love doing. I am very much looking toward the future and having outdoor learning adventures with all of you! 

To all the families and friends who supported me during my first year, thank you for everything.

Thank you all for your time and love!
