Environmental Education Internships at
Twin Eagles Wilderness School
Our Environmental Education Internships at Twin Eagles Wilderness School are an opportunity for an immersive experience in deep nature connection within a culture of conscious mentoring. You'll experience a plethora of tools for connecting with the land, yourself, and others.
Our vision weaves together the timeless wisdom of our indigenous and earth based elders and mentors along with current best practices in experiential outdoor education. This combines into powerful and transformative community building, self-discovery, and sense of place. We'll show you how this can be done so you'll leave with a strong set of practices and a felt sense in your body of authentic deep nature connection mentoring.
We welcome you here! Being an intern is a chance to meet like-minded people who care about nature, enjoy community, and have a passion for self-awareness. You'll get to be a part of a growing community and see the living results of the nurturing power of deep nature connection alongside the timeless wisdom of mentoring relationships that create the kind of people needed for a healthy, vibrant planet.

The impact I feel I've made on the community will never leave me. I not only learned the basics of wilderness survival, but I've learned how to inspire others through full wilderness immersion, how to teach important concepts through storytelling, and how to truly connect with the natural world by experiencing the value and wisdom that it holds at every turn. My experience with Twin Eagles has inspired me to discover how to use what I've learned to make a difference in my own community.”

Summer Environmental Education Internships - Details & Logistics
Duration: Anywhere from two to nine weeks between mid-June and mid-August. Interns select a minimum of two week-long day or overnight summer camps. This is a full time, nature immersion internship that asks for a lot of your time and energy and gives you just as much experience, training, learning, transformation, and fulfillment.
Provisions: We provide a place to camp. You provide travel to & from, camping supplies, meals & cooking gear (except for overnight camps), and basic living amenities.
Spring Environmental Education Internships - Details & Logistics
Duration: Anywhere from two to ten weeks between April and mid-June. This is a more relaxed internship than our summer internship, but still gives you plenty of experience, training, learning, transformation, and fulfillment.
Provisions: Spring interns are responsible for all of their own basic living needs, including finding accommodations in our local community of Sandpoint, Idaho, as well as all their own meals.
