About Primitive Instincts Youth Nature Program
Primitive Instincts Youth Nature Program is a fully immersive and experiential outdoor program for youth (ages 5 to 10 years old), 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, for 2019-2020, 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. More programs will be offered as we grow, including specialized age groups. As the year continues, we will be adding events and courses, such as Community Camp Outs, Camping 101, Making Acorn Flour, and Archery, which will be open to all ages.
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.
The subjects, topics, and discussions of programs include:
Botany and Wild Edibles
Awareness Skills and Games
Will Class Ever Be Cancelled?
The only time we will ever cancel class is if there is an extreme weather advisory in affect, which includes but is not limited to, thunderstorms, tornado warnings, and flood warnings.
