You are invited to join an educational experience in a relaxing environment with an affordable opportunity for everyone to enjoy. We look forward to building the same temporary community and enjoying a laid back event in the tradition of the Great Lakes Primitives Gathering. Prior experience or skill levels are not necessary to join these activities. Evening campfires will be a time to relax, share some stories, talent and get together with new friends and renew old friendships. This is also a great learning opportunity for children.
