About Primitive Instincts Youth Nature Program

Primitive Instincts Youth Nature Program is a fully immersive and experiential outdoor program for youth, teens, the whole family, and adults interested in growing a stronger relationship with nature. We are located on 11.5 acres in beautiful Wimberley, Texas. 

Programs that are currently offered throughout the school year begin the first week of September and end the last week of May. They include monthly programs that meet on Saturdays and weekly programs that meet once a week on Thursdays or Fridays. There are a wide range of different events that we offer, including Camping 101, Community Camp Outs, Outdoors with Your Family, Making Acorn Flour, and Fire Day. We will be adding more events and courses as we grow,

The weekly programs are more curriculum guided, although, all the courses at Primitive Instincts Youth Nature Program will be motivated by Passion-Based Learning, where we build relationships to focus on the children’s passions as well as creating passions within the students. At times, students will not be given the answer to their questions and left with the option to further investigate themselves. Kids will be able to utilize books and field guides in our research room, as well as be able to record their discoveries. We want to influence independence, a love for the outdoors, and for kids to grow their passions.
