Happy Spring The sun is shining, birds are singing, frogs are peeping, and nature's promise of renewal is here. Everything seems to be waking up from a long winter's sleep. This past month has been a season of transition, one we've been staying present with here at Twin Eagles. We've stayed busy making wooden bows and arrows, tracking wildlife, telling stories, and celebrating the end of the winter season. We've also been working hard to prepare for our upcoming spring programs and summer camps, which we're very excited for! We're grateful for life, and hope you are too!

Twin Eagles Summer Camps 2017
Registration is now coming in very steady, with some camps already over halfway full! If you are considering having your kids join us this summer, we encourage you to enroll soon in order to reserve a spot! We have online credit card registration that is quick and easy. We are anticipating that most if not all of our camps will fill to capacity with waiting lists this year.
At Twin Eagles, 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.
"The first word that comes to mind as I write about my son's experience with Twin Eagles is 'Grateful'. I, as his parent, could not be more grateful for the week he spent exploring the wilderness with you. It was such a joy to send him off each morning knowing he sincerely looked forward to the day, and likewise, to pick him in the afternoon and see the smile and look of complete satisfaction on his face. EVERY DAY was like this! You all gave to him knowledge, skills, and spirit that I, as a person, simply could not provide for him. Thank you!"
- Amy Barberry

Father-Son Wilderness Program
For fathers and their 7 - 12 year old sons
Friday April 28 - Monday May 1, 2017
Medicine Circle Eco-Retreat - Priest River, Idaho
When was the last time you stripped away all the distractions, and just connected with your son(s) and what is most important in life in the simplest way possible?
When was the last time you slowed down, really slowed down, and just connected with nature, on nature's terms?
Imagine taking four days with your son(s), and connecting deeply with nature and your boy(s) through ancestral wilderness survival skills, all within a small "tribe" of other fathers & sons that are like minded with similar values.
Since the dawn of time, fathers and sons have bonded deeply in and with the wilderness. Ancestral wilderness skills have an innate ability to deepen the Father-Son connection like nothing else. This Spring, we're running a very special Father-Son Wilderness Program at Twin Eagles. During this program, we'll make fire by friction, build and sleep in natural shelters, learn traditional hunting and gathering techniques, and track wild animals. Primitive wilderness survival isn't a "Man vs. Wild" scenario, it is an opportunity to build a deep relationship with the Earth. As you and your son do so, you'll find that your relationship with your son deepens in powerful ways.
We'll have facilitated, open heart Father-Son relationship deepening time, and of course opportunities to connect with the other fathers and sons present. Just as our earth based ancestors did, we'll utilize traditional earth based spiritual practices to help facilitate the connection, and have surprise elements too. We're looking for fathers and sons who are ready to open their bodies, minds, and hearts to a deeper connection, have epic fun, and take the time to connect with what matters most.
Interested, or know someone who might be? Learn more here.
