Do you yearn to feel at one with nature?
Do you wish to guide others on the journey of deep nature connection?
Are you seeking a community of like minds & hearts?
Do you want to truly discover yourself?
Twin Eagles Wilderness Skills Instructor Training Program is a ten day intensive that provides adults a rich opportunity to immerse themselves in the teachings of the Earth and develop themselves as nature connection mentors. Wilderness survival, wildlife tracking, wild edible & medicinal plants, naturalist training, bird language, nature based mentoring, outdoor leadership, and inner tracking become pathways to a transformational journey of deep connection with nature, community, mentoring, & self.
This experience will give you the chance to slow down and embrace time-tested, ancient practices of connecting deeply with nature and earth based approaches to education that we've been successfully facilitating for nearly twenty years. You'll steep in a culture of nature based mentoring with peers that will feel more like family by the end of the experience. You'll be guided by experienced, gifted, open-hearted mentors to discover your authentic self.
In a fast paced world that is increasingly fostering disconnection, this opportunity is designed from the ground up to holistically develop resiliency, a sense of place, confidence, vision, peace, meaning, leadership, mentoring, and connection. It is an opportunity to build relationships with what is truly important in life.
The Twin Eagles Wilderness Skills Instructor Training Program is for adults with a passion for nature, community, mentoring, and self-discovery who are ready to transform from yearning for deep connection to nature and mentoring, to living a life of deep connection with nature and mentoring.

Summer Camps 2023 Update
All of our Summer Camps are now 100% full. We filled up about 75% in the first 4 hours, and then it took about a month for the rest of the spots to be claimed. We are working on creating more capacity and we do get cancellations, so we encourage you to sign up for our waitlists.
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.
Our highly trained instructors draw out kids' passions through nature based activities like:

Father-Son Wilderness Program - Almost Full!
For fathers and their 8 - 13 year old sons
Thursday September 7 - Monday September 11, 2023
Medicine Circle Eco-Retreat - Priest River, Idaho
Imagine taking five 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.
