Welcome to Northeast Primitive Rendezvous Association, Inc.
The "Original" Northeastern Primitive Rendezvous offers "family camping" with a bit of a twist, everything should be "picture perfect" to the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. All modern conveniences, and there are modern conveniences, are hidden from view.
There are three time periods from the early history of America represented at our rendezvous: French and Indian War, American Revolution, and the Rocky Mountain Fur Trade between 1825 and 1840. Although we cover periods of war our representations are of camp life. Our cut off date of 1840 was chosen because after that time there were significant societal and technological changes influencing daily life.
You might say that the "Original" Northeastern is "old fashioned" in more ways than one. It absolutely is and in more ways than just appearance, it encourages old fashioned family values as well. It provides a safe environment, an unique community, an extended family.

promote these other events?
Although the only event that the NEPRA offers is
the "Original" North Eastern,
it strongly supports the efforts of others that offer similar quality events
regardless of who runs them.
We believe that participants of the "Original" North Eastern
may well enjoy these fine family oriented "rendezvous".
You're sure to see the organizers of these events at the "Original"
