Twin Eagles Wilderness School
Wild roses are blooming, Juncos have fledged, fawns are being birthed, and the summer solstice is just one week away. The season of intense growth is upon us, and Twin Eagles is no exception. We're gearing up for our biggest season of summer camps yet, our largest week long adult workshop ever - the Art of Mentoring (coming up next October), as well as the launch of our completely redesigned nine month long transformational Wilderness Immersion Program.

Feature Article: What is Mentoring?
What is mentoring? What is a mentor? What is a mentor relationship? These terms are being used more and more in the world today in a variety of contexts and environments.

Summer Camps Update
We are just a few days away from the beginning of our 2012 summer camp season. Campers, MITs, volunteers, and staff are traveling in from all over the western US to be a part of the epic adventures that will unfold. If you've been to Twin Eagles, you know that we don't just run summer camps, we redefine what summer camps are. Sure we do storytelling, songs, and games. But we take much deeper than that.
Deep connection to nature is facilitated that words can't do justice to. We give kids real skills like finding edible plants, making fire by friction, or tracking animals, the same skills that kept our ancestors alive. We facilitate deep personal growth in the context of nature, and kids discover who they really are and surprise themselves by what they are capable of. The bonds that form are like family. All this adds up to an unforgettable experience that people come back year after year for.
We still have openings in most of our camps, and we also still have some available funds for summer camp scholarships. Don't wait any longer to register! The time is now. More info on the web here.
Save $100 on the Art of Mentoring!
This past week we hosted an absolutely amazing free conference call on the Art of Mentoring. The response was huge, with over 325 people registering for it from all over the world. Jeannine Tidwell spoke on the call, as well as Jon Young (from the 8 Shields Institute) and Mark Morey (from the Institute for Natural Learning).
The call was deeply inspiring, and we also offered a special limited time $100 discount on the Art of Mentoring workshop happening here in Sandpoint, Idaho October 8 - 13, 2012. The discount is only good for one more week, so we really encourage you to take advantage of this offer while you still can. In order to get in on the discount, you'll need to listen to the recording of the call here.
