Turtle Lodge at Maine Primitive Skills School: A Symbol of Honor and Connection

This unique Earth Lodge holds a special significance, reserved exclusively for community elders who are granted the privilege of resting within its walls.
Sacred Privilege: Access to the Turtle Lodge is a distinguished privilege, reserved for community elders, reflecting the reverence and respect for their wisdom and experience. It serves as a space for rest, reflection, and a continuation of traditions.
