Arnot Forest Camp is located outside of Ithaca, New York at Cornell University’s Arnot Forest natural area, with a historic lodge and cabins and over 4,200 acres of wilderness to explore. For 20 years Primitive Pursuits has provided outdoor skill immersions for thousands of youth, in small groups and throughout the seasons. Our outstanding reputation is built on the quality of our instruction and the passion we have for learning, as we facilitate discovery and empowerment for others. What really makes us unique among adventure experiences is this supportive learning community where youth find role models, friendships and the freedom they crave. With encouragement from peers and mentors alike, youth gain a life-long access to the natural world, with skills that serve them wherever they go and a sense of confidence and resilience that parents will appreciate.
