Feature Article: Permaculture Gardening
When I first discovered permaculture gardening I knew I had found a path that would help me achieve my dreams. I've always felt called to actively participate in nature, feel connected to where I live, and provide for my needs while at the same time caring for and nurturing the place where I live. That is what permaculture is all about.
So what is permaculture exactly? Permaculture is... continue reading here
Twin Eagles Summer Camps 2013!!
We are very excited to announce Twin Eagles Summer Camps 2013! We have some really exciting changes this year that you're going to love! We encourage you to register soon, as our summer camps are in high demand!
At Twin Eagles Summer Camps, we believe that connecting deeply with nature is critical to whole child development. The experiences we offer bring kids back to a simpler, more connected way of life where their senses are honed to once again hear the call of the wild, revel in the feeling of mud squishing between their toes, delight in the beauty of wildflowers, and listen to the music in mountain streams. Kids develop authentic resiliency through real world challenges and traditional earth based skills as they experience the deep peace of the natural world.
Our highly trained instructors draw out kids' passions through nature based activities like:
- Making fire by friction
- Learning edible & medicinal plants
- Exploring natural mysteries
- Tracking wild animals
- Building natural shelters
- Discovering the language of the forest
- Training as the native scouts of old did
- Learning earth based crafts, stories, songs
- and much, much more!
For 2013, we are offering ten full weeks of summer camp in Sandpoint, Spokane, and Priest River. They include:
New for this summer, we are offering THEMES for all of our Day Camps for Kids ages 6-13! You're going to love this. Our lineup for this summer includes:

Twin Eagles Wilderness Immersion Program - Update
This winter has been chock full of fun, learning, and adventure at Twin Eagles Wilderness Immersion Program. Snow tracking, pottery, in depth naturalist studies, elderberry containers, and advanced cordage techniques & applications are a few of the topics we've spent time with.
For many, however, the real highlights have been our more intensive experiences. We spent five days high in the mountains on our snow cave expedition, and took three full days to craft wooden bows.
The snow cave expedition brought many gifts and teachings, not the least of which was a deepening of inner resolve. I love seeing the participants grow and access previously unknown inner strengths as we snowshoed up the mountain and built our snow cave. And the sled ride down was just the cherry on top.
Spending three full days carefully carving and tillering our wooden bows was equally rewarding, as the gifts of consistency were brought forward by those resilient hickory staves that are now beautiful and practical bows.
Registration is currently open for the 2013-2014 year at Twin Eagles Wilderness Immersion Program. You can save over $1000 on the tuition by registering early, before April 15, 2013. Please contact us if you're considering joining next year. We're happy to connect with you, give you more information, and schedule a time for you to come out and visit.
Blessings on the journey ahead,
co-Director & co-Founder
