Twin Eagles Wilderness School
Warm summer greetings from Twin Eagles Wilderness School! The summer season is in full force, and with it an incredible amount of deep nature connection moments are happening. We've had up close encounters with white tailed fawns, timeless moments sitting by the water with dragonflies landing on muddy feet, taking in the sweet smell of the flowers of wild rose and elderberry, tasting the delicate nectar of honeysuckle flowers, havivng our awareness peaked by poison ivy, ticks and yellowjackets, discovering the tracks of raccoon and mink in creekside mud, finding camouflaged skinks hiding in the thick bark of ponderosa pine trees, and watching families of canada geese and mallard ducks grow, just to name a few. What natural mysteries =have you been encountering?
eNewsletter - June 2018
Our summer season is equally abundant. June began with a very successful ten day Wilderness Skills Instructor Training Program, followed by the first three weeks of summer camps in Sandpoint, Coeur d'Alene, and Spokane. Nearly 100 kids have already had countless moments of deep nature connection like those described above, mentored by the caring hands and hearts of our summer camp instructors. The kids don't want the games, activities, or camps to end, as the relationships are woven deeper and deeper day by day. Just today we received a beautiful thank you card from one of the campers and his mom, acknowledging our "passion for earth & nature and most importantly sharing it with new generations". While some camps are completely full with waiting lists, we do have a few camps with spaces remaining, and we continue to work to create more available slots as interest continues to increase. We hope to see you out there this summer!
Here is what we have in store for you in this months eNewsletter:

Summer Camps 2018 Update
Twin Eagles Wilderness Adventure Summer Camps have begun! While some camps are full with waiting lists, we do still have some spaces left. Don't delay! Sign up now while you still can!
There is so much to love about Twin Eagles Summer Camps:
"My boys LOVED Twin Eagles. Wish everyday of school and learning was like a day in the wild with Twin Eagles. We are grateful for all you teach and the deep nature connection you foster in each child. I wish every child could have this experience. We will be back! Thank you!"
- Kids get to be kids again, roaming wild and free in nature.
- Safety. We take campers physical and emotional safety seriously, and hold every member of camp to a high standard that creates a safe space for powerful experiences to emerge.
- Real skills, real challenges, real adventures. Trailing coyotes, making healing salves from St. Johnswort and Yarrow plants, crafting wooden bow and arrows. Does it get any better?
- Our highly trained instructors are some of the finest in the field. First Aid/CPR certification, background checks, and a high level of training in both nature based mentoring and traditional earth skills are all requirements. Our staff are adept at really listening to kids, drawing out their passions, and engaging them fully.
- We have the most fun! Year after year, our campers, instructors and parents consistently report that the Twin Eagles experience is the most fun, engaging, and relevant.
- We offer a genuinely holistic experience rooted in hope, connecting with what is truly important in life - nature, community, and self.

Ben Greenfield Fitness Podcast with Tim Corcoran - Vision Quests and Rites of Passage
Earlier this month I (Tim) was featured on the Ben Greenfield Podcast. Ben is a paleo fitness expert, author, and podcaster who is also happens to be a good friend. He has trained with me here at Twin Eagles, and sends his twin sons to our camps each year. During our podcast we spoke about vision quests, rites of passage, and how the human search for purpose in life intersects with nature. It was a lively discussion, with lots of fun stories and insights. Ben grilled me with questions, which I happily ate up! Lots of folks are reporting that is was a great podcast, so feel free to check it out if you're interested: Listen to this special podcast here!
