Twin Eagles Wilderness School
eNewsletter - April 2012
Greetings! Spring has arrived here in Sandpoint, and with it, the spirit of new beginnings is strong at Twin Eagles. The past nine months have been a huge gestation period of going within, re-evaluating and re-visioning for our organization. Just like giving birth, it has been a huge process of transformation. We are so excited that the new expression of life is finally here!
As you have probably noticed, we have a new and improved eNewsletter! You can count on our new eNewsletters being more concise and more consistent from here on out. They will all include general updates, special nature connection articles, and program announcements.
Our new website is now up and running! Same address, new site. If you haven't seen it yet, go check it out at www.TwinEagles.org. Once there, you'll find a whole new section of free nature connection articles, as well as updated adult and youth program information including new and improved online registration. Please be aware that our new website is a work-in-progress, so check back regularly for updates.
Twin Eagles Summer Camps 2012 are currently enrolling, so get your kids and teens registered now! This will be another record breaking summer for us with eight full weeks of camps, more than ever before! More info below.
We are very proud to launch our new-and-improved, nine month long transformational Wilderness Immersion Program for adults. This is huge for us, and it will transform our organization and community, as well as the lives of the participants. Check it out below.
Lastly, we have stopped using a sliding scale for tuition, and replaced it with normal, static prices, combined with a scholarship program. Our intention with this change is to simplify and increase our program availability to those in need of financial assistance.
Enjoy the changes!

One of the biggest reasons so many people love edible wild plants is that they're free! As well, the nutrition content is higher in wild edible plants than store bought foods because they are wild and you're gathering them fresh and in season. Often store bought food is sitting on the shelves for ages before you get to it and you don't get to see your food in its natural environment before buying and eating it.

Twin Eagles Wilderness Adventure Summer Camps 2012
This summer, give your kids the gift of making deep relationships with nature, community, and themselves. This is an unforgettable experience that kids and parents alike rave about:
As a parent, Twin Eagles fills the category of medicine for my child's soul. The magic that is created through the amazing instructors, the children, and the natural world isn't to be found easily in this fast 'developing' world. She is continually being challenged in the perfect way for her, the mentors are so acutely aware of their role and so able to meet her in her true self just where she is in any given moment. I feel our lives are so blessed to have the resource of Twin Eagles Wilderness School in our community. -Jennifer Ott
