What on EARTH are your kids doing for Winter Break?
Bouncing off the walls? Zoning out on video games? Driving you crazy? No thanks!!
As a parent myself I know how hard it is to have energetic kids with nothing to do during school break. It can be frustrating, stressful, and downright crazy-making when my kids are stuck inside for a week or more.
Why not send them to Twin Eagles this winter break where their energy is welcome and honored? Kids need nature. We provide a safe space for kids to fully express themselves as they deepen their connection to nature, other fun loving kids, and caring mentors. Our instructors are carefully trained to not just mentor kids in super cool wilderness skills, but drive home the deep life lessons that support them to develop into healthy, caring, empowered human beings. The actions we take today influence who are children become tomorrow.
We're offering a three day winter break camp that meets Tuesday January 2 - Thursday January 4, 9:00 am - 3:00 pm daily. Our location is just 15 minutes SW of downtown Spokane, where we have access to 50+ acres of beautiful and diverse land, rich with areas to explore.
Learn more and register online for Twin Eagles Winter Break Camp here.
Kids spend their days practicing skills like building practical & warm snow shelters, tracking wild animals, safely making fire, exploring natural mysteries on the land, learning primitive crafts, as well as storytelling around a warm fire in our tipi. Its an experience like no other that meets a deep need in today's youth that is typically otherwise going unmet for most kids.
"Twin Eagles is a holistic world to be a part of. We are so happy to find this for our entire family and especially our 9 and 11 year old. Instilling deep value in the meaning of the woods and how to navigate it on many levels is important to us, and Twin Eagles creates a community that helps us teach them. They are learning many skills we don't have ourselves, so we learn, too. Our kids loved summer camp and are now a part of the weekend program. A place for all ages, they are always learning in an environment of genuinely kind people.
The Fall Harvest event was especially enlightening as we participated in primitive cooking, nature arts, song and the art of storytelling. Children tended fires and split wood and use knives responsibly. They were taught to respect the forest and care for it as well as use it wisely. I can't say enough good things about Twin Eagles and the staff and their sincere passion for outdoor living. We will continue to participate and learn from these teachers as a whole family." -Kate Wilson, Nov 13, 2017

P.S. - Our Winter Break Camp is a GREAT way for kids to get started at Twin Eagles! At just three days long, its a great starting point for new families who are interested in checking us out, but not yet ready for a longer commitment. The three day school break camp format allows us to get to know your kids, build relationships, and form a mentoring foundation in partnership with you as their parent that has the potential to positively impact them long into the future. "It takes a village to raise a child", so lets do this!!
