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:
  • Making fire by friction
  • Learning edible & medicinal plants
  • Exploring natural mysteries
  • Tracking wild animals
  • Building natural shelters
  • Discovering the language of the forest
  • Training as the native scouts of old did
  • Learning earth based crafts, stories, songs
  • and much, much more!

Attention Parents, become a volunteer instructor at our summer camps!

Parents, are you interested in volunteering at Twin Eagles as an assistant instructor? Volunteering with Twin Eagles is a great way to gain a deeper understanding of the magic that is Twin Eagles, and also have some fun! As a Parent Volunteer Assistant Instructor, you'll get to step into the community aspects of raising kids, seeing firsthand how "It takes a village to raise a child". You will get to be a part of our collaborative staff team, including receiving training in nature connection, leadership, and mentoring.

This will help you bring some of the potency of the Twin Eagles culture into your own family and your role as a parent and community member. You'll get to be a witness and contributor in the weaving of a powerful learning experience for your child/children. As a parent, you bring an important perspective that benefits the camaraderie and powerful unity, compassion and understanding to our staff. This is a great opportunity to recharge in a natural setting and remember the joys and timelessness of childhood close to nature.

Parents choose at least one program to be a part of, and receive 50% off the tuition of any children attending that program, priority placement of their kids into our programs (including our very popular summer camps), a free Twin Eagles Wilderness School t-shirt, and other benefits!

"When I joined my 2 kids at Twin Eagles summer camp as a volunteer staff, I sunk into a whole new understanding of nature connection. It is such a privilege to lead my own kids through a process of deep nature connection within the context of a wider group - to watch them master skills, learn new concepts, and experience the many layers of connection to the land. However, the greatest joy is listening to them share their deep thoughts and impressions around the fire. I get to hear firsthand how their souls were connecting with the loving kindness of nature around them, whether that be through a story shared around a fire, or the sighting of a red tail hawk, or the tracking of a moose. Life is short - and there is no place I would rather be than at Twin Eagles allowing the magic of nature and mentoring to guide both myself and my children together."-Lisa Bowman-Trefts
