Emerging Girls Program
For 10 - 13 year old girls
Friday March 2 - Sunday March 4, 2018
Scotia House Retreat Center, Newport, Washington
Every journey has a beginning. This program's journey begins with supporting girls ages 10 - 13 to feel safe, comfortable and confident in nature as well as learn respect for themselves, other girls and women and the environment in which they live. Our intentions are to help them in developing and trusting in healthy inter-personal relationships and inspire the exploration and curiosity of learning about themselves and their qualities within. We'll discover ourselves through nature and all nature offers us.
This is an opportunity for girls to foster bravery inside themselves, express their strengths through outdoor adventures and develop healthy assertiveness as they move through motivating and inspiring challenges, encountering their wild spirit within. We empower girls to discover and enrich a deep sense of themselves so they can truly see themselves and be seen, hear their own unique voice and be heard, and feel a held belonging in the woven basket of their experiences with other girls.

Father-Son Wilderness Program
For fathers and their 7 - 12 year old sons
Friday May 4 - Monday May 7, 2018
Medicine Circle Eco-Retreat - Priest River, Idaho
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.
