Twin Eagles Summer Camps 2024

Wilderness Adventure Summer Camps for Kids & Teens
Sandpoint, ID · Coeur d'Alene, ID · Spokane, WA · Bozeman, MT
Inland Northwest

Twin Eagles summer camps bring out the best in kids by connecting them deeply to the natural world, forging strong community, and developing genuine self-awareness. Since 2005 we've been offering day and overnight camps for ages 6 - 18 in Sandpoint, Coeur d'Alene, Priest River, Spokane and now in 2024, Bozeman, Montana! Our highly trained instructors draw out kids' passions through nature based activities like:

  • Making fire by friction
  • Learning edible & medicinal plants
  • Exploring natural mysteries
  • Traditional archery
  • Tracking wild animals
  • Building natural shelters
  • Discovering the language of the forest
  • Training as the native scouts of old did
  • Learning earth based crafts, arts, stories, songs
  • and much, much more!
Through my son's participation in Twin Eagles, what I have seen grow most is a tremendous amount of respect. Watching his awareness of nature, people and everything unfold is just beautiful. His excitement in everything he learns and experiences - his yearning to learn more - has grown vastly. Thank You!”

- Tammie Martinsen

At Twin Eagles Summer Camps, we believe that deep nature connection 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.

As the deep nature connection journey unfolds, our learning community of kids and instructors become tightly bonded, feeling more like family by the camps end. Natural curiosity is fostered into a heartfelt passion for learning, and a love for the earth rises from deep within. Inspirational and meaningful experiences in nature serve as a doorway to powerful life lessons.

Top Ten Reasons to choose Twin Eagles Summer Camps

  1. Kids get to be kids again, roaming wild and free in nature.
  2. 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?
  3. 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.
  4. Our small group sizes (1-6 staff to camper ratio) allow for intimate learning groups to form that feel more like family by camp's end. The deep bonds that form between campers and instructors alike last a lifetime.
  5. 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.
  6. The community. Our nature based mentoring approach is rooted in authentic relationship building. Each year the community grows stronger and stronger, and new families often report that they take it in like a breath of fresh air.
  7. We're totally unique. You won't find any other camp like us out there.
  8. 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.
  9. An honest guarantee. If your child doesn't like our camps and chooses to leave before the camp's end, we'll give you a pro-rated refund for all the remaining days they don't attend. Please see our registration process for more details.
  10. We offer a genuinely holistic experience rooted in hope, connecting with what is truly important in life - nature, community, and self.

Day Camps for Kids ages 6 - 14

Outdoor Adventure Camp

Our week long day camps are an ideal starting point for kids ages 6 to 14 to embark on the deep nature connection journey. Grand adventure, creative expression, huge fun, and unending exploration all join together in these unforgettable experiences that help kids discover comfort and confidence being outdoors and bring their spirits to life.

Passionate engagement opens the door for deeper teachings to take root. Authentic gratitude, self-confidence, patience, good communication, awareness, teamwork, problem-solving, and respect for all things all build as kids deepen their connection to nature, community, and self.

All of our summer day camps run Monday through Friday from 9:00 am - 3:00 pm. Camper families are invited to join our closing circle on Friday from 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm to celebrate the week's experience together.

Hands down, the summer outdoor adventure camp offered by Twin Eagles was my son's favorite experience, over and above any art camp, sports camp or other organized activity he has attended. I believe the overwhelming positive response can be attributed to the unique nature based mentoring process Twin Eagles offers children, answering some core childhood needs that too often go unmet for many of today's busy children.

Particularly, Twin Eagles offers children the experience of becoming a community that shares stories, songs and rituals, and that learns through age-old mentoring practices that build on a child's sense of wonder and expand children's awareness about their place in the natural world. This experience is precious.”

Theme based Day Camps at Twin Eagles

This summer we are continuing our inspirational theme based day camps here at Twin Eagles! 2024 Day Camp themes include:

You are welcome to sign up for as many summer camps as you like. Our camps are all highly engaging and unique, so feel free to pick one or more themes!

We run our summer camps in a way that makes each individual week of camp unique. No two Twin Eagles camps are ever the same! If you return to the same theme a second time, you'll find new and exciting skills, challenges, and adventures that will keep you coming back for more. We take the act of engaging participants in the nature connection journey very seriously, and invest heavily in staff training to honor the art and science of long term mentoring. This is one of our core values that makes our organization unique.


Nature Adventurers Day Camp for ages 6 - 12

Mystery and adventure await all those who heed the call of the wild. Have you ever looked out onto a wild landscape, and imagined all the possible natural adventures, just waiting to be experienced? Indeed, there are great treasures in the natural world for all those with the eyes to see them and the ears to hear them. Treasures like music in mountain streams, or a picture of the universe in a delicate wildflower.

This is what Nature Adventurers do. We band together to heed the call of the wild, and experience activities like:

  • Exploring Natural Mysteries
  • Super Fun Nature Based Games
  • Songs & Storytelling
  • Track Wild Animals
  • Sensory Awareness Activities
  • Crafting with Natural Materials
  • Explore forests, creeks, meadows, wetlands, & more
  • Discover Edible & Medicinal Wild Plants
  • Immersion in Nature
As a parent, Twin Eagles Wilderness School fills the category of medicine for my child's soul. The magic that is created through the amazing instructors, the children, and the natural world isn't to be found easily in this fast 'developing' world. The places my child is able to explore, in relation to mentors, peers, the natural world and herself is so valuable and enriching to her developing being.

She is continually being challenged in the perfect way for her, the mentors are so acutely aware of their role and so able to meet her in her true self just where she is in any given moment. I feel our lives are so blessed to have the resource of Twin Eagles Wilderness School in our community. I am truly grateful.”

Wilderness Survival Day Camp for ages 8 - 13

There is an ancient calling deep in the heart to experience the freedom and adventure of living wild and free, close to nature. A desire to provide for one's own needs directly from the Earth, ultimately leading to self-confidence and a powerful sense of place, an almost indescribable, magical sense of oneness with the natural world.

This is the journey of wilderness survival. By the week's end, the experience won't be just learning to survive, but to thrive in the wilderness. During this week of camp, we'll steep in a variety of nature based activities. Possibilities include:

  • Making fire by friction
  • Building strong natural shelters
  • Safe use of knives and carving
  • Harvesting wild edible plants
  • Tracking wild animals
  • Stalking and catching frogs
  • How to obtain clean water
  • Earth crafts like basketry and cordage making
  • Traps, throwing sticks, and slings
  • Primitive cooking over a fire
  • Lostproofing
  • Navigation by map & compass, sun & stars
The first word that comes to mind as I write about my son's experience with Twin Eagles is 'Grateful'. I, as his parent, could not be more grateful for the week he spent exploring the wilderness with you. It was such a joy to send him off each morning knowing he sincerely looked forward to the day, and likewise, to pick him in the afternoon and see the smile and look of complete satisfaction on his face. EVERY DAY was like this! You all gave to him knowledge, skills, and spirit that I, as a person, simply could not provide for him. Thank you!

So, was Twin Eagles a good choice for my son? Absolutely. I believe he is changed forever, and has new and wonderful insights on the world around him because of his time at Twin Eagles Summer Camp. He looks forward to many more great days spent with the wise and wonderful people who comprise Twin Eagles Wilderness School! Thank you, thank you, thank you!”

Forest Scouts Day Camp for ages 8 - 13

Enter the ancient, secretive world of the forest scout. Forest scouts are the eyes and ears of the tribe, protectors of the village. They are masters of stealth, camouflage, and invisibility, traveling unseen and unheard amongst the shadows.

Like the native scouts of old, forest scouts learn the language of the forest and the subtle track and sign left behind by wildlife in order to foretell danger drawing near.

Immersed in the wild places, they hone their senses to befriend the animals and birds - fox and weasel, wren and thrush. Wait... the birds give away the approach of another clan, prepare for ambush!

In Forest Scouts Day Camp, we'll practice skills such as:

  • Natural camouflage, stealth, and invisibility
  • Learning the language of the forest
  • Immersion in nature & sensory awareness
  • Wild animal tracking
  • Practicing blindfold activities to enhance the other senses
  • Playing awareness games
  • Stalking and natural, silent movement
  • Learning to move with the ebb and flow of nature
  • Developing balance in body, mind, and heart
  • Making smokeless fires and other invisible survival skills
  • Capture the Flag and other stealth awareness games
Twin Eagles provided a profound experience to our children. Through the guidance of their instructors they developed a more fundamental connection with nature and thus, themselves... Whether you live in the heart of the city or the remote wilderness, we would recommend their outdoor adventure camp to all!”

Crafts & Foraging Day Camp for ages 8 - 13

Kids love making stuff! They love making stuff even more when the raw materials come directly from nature, and even more when they harvested the raw materials themselves from the wild. That is exactly what we are going to do in the day camp! Foraging and crafting are timeless, essential practices for humans on the planet. Come join us as we immerse ourselves in the fields, forests and riversides as our earth-based ancestors did long ago gathering wild local materials for making functional and beautiful crafts, tools, foods and medicines.

Possible Crafts & Foraging Day Camp activities include:

  • Making Baskets and Containers from Local Plants and Trees
  • Felting with Local Materials for Making Mats, Bags or Pouches
  • Harvesting and Preparing Wild Edible Foods
  • Making Salves and Balms from Local Plants and Trees
  • Natural paper making
  • Making ink, pens, pencils, crayons and paint brushes from plants and trees
  • Weaving Natural Fabric
  • Making and Using Natural Rope
  • Natural Dyeing Techniques
  • Making Plaster Casts from Wildlife Tracks
  • Creating Sundials and Compasses for Navigating and Telling Time
  • Beautiful Natural Jewelry Making
  • Creating & Using a Plant Press
  • Making Coal Burned Spoons
  • Crafting Game Items to be Played with in Groups

Crafting and foraging activities will include identifying native and non-native species, ethical harvesting practices, processing raw materials, and caretaking best practices. Campers will create functional, practical pieces of art. As they do so, campers will learn about the ecosystem where we'll be foraging & crafting, and experience themselves as part of the interconnected web of natural relationships.

Making natural crafts and foraging wild foods & medicines is super fun! Having a direct relationship with handmade items is deeply engaging and brings more meaning, understanding and connection to life itself.

This was the single most impactful camp my son has ever been to. He not only learned meaningful wilderness skills but he also grew in his connection to nature, his peers and himself. He really connected with the staff and I was grateful that they modeled the character traits we are always trying to instill in our children. I highly recommend this camp!”

Emerging Wild Leaders Day Camp for ages 11 - 14 New for 2024!

Take your nature connection journey to the next level and develop natural leadership skills while having mountains of fun! This day camp is designed for pre-teens and young teens to connect with peers and be guided further along the journey of wilderness skills and nature based mentoring.

Imagine the possibility of trailing otters along a river sandbar with friends, or taking nature games to the next level of fun in ways that only older kids can, or relaxing as freshly harvested wild edible foods roast over the flames of the campfire you started with your handmade fire making kit. This experience is sure to deepen your connection to nature!

Nature awareness and wilderness connection offer the ultimate training ground for emerging wild leaders. Discover the true strength of a team, learn more about your own unique gifts, find fulfillment in service, build strength for facing challenges, and foster your creativity, communication, and self-confidence. Learn about group dynamics and how helping others is secretly helping yourself.

These pre-teen and early teen years can feel complicated and be filled with change. But there are some tried and true earth-based mentoring traditions to help us find our center and feel clear-sighted. What makes you feel happy and good? What sort of world do you want to create and be a part of? We will dive into these mysteries together at Emerging Wild Leaders!

**Note: This day camp is a great step towards becoming an MIT (Mentor-In-Training) at Twin Eagles Wilderness School!

My daughter and son both agree that Twin Eagles was their favorite part of summer. I am so pleased to find that Twin Eagles programs are competent, engaging and respectful of nature, families and children. Over two different week long summer camps I became particularly impressed with the teachers' outdoor skills, patience with children and reverence for their craft. The curriculum is professionally developed, the staff have years of outdoor education experience, and the value placed on mindfulness and connection to nature are woven into each activity. My children's new found curiosity for nature is amazing to behold. Thank you for being an incredible asset to this community.”

Overnight Camps for Kids & Teens ages 10 - 18


Outdoor Adventure Camp

Once a year, Twin Eagles offers a lucky group of adventurous youth and teens an opportunity to immerse themselves in nature for a tremendous experience of living, learning, working and playing in the natural world away from the rush and din of our modern society. Twin Eagles Overnight Outdoor Adventure Camp is an experience unlike any other.

Working together within mentoring relationships, overnight campers learn wilderness skills such as building and sleeping in primitive shelters, fire by friction, wild edible plants for food and teas, crafting wooden bowls and spoons, pottery using clay from the local river, primitive cooking, making cordage, weaving baskets, and making stone tools, just to name a few. Overnight campers deepen their awareness by honing the senses through animal tracking, bird language and a variety of other possible activities.

Community living offers these youth opportunities to experience the interconnectedness of all life - through sleeping in tipis, song, storytelling, and more. At our overnight outdoor adventure camp, tangible and intangible skills are learned such as communication & teamwork, inner stillness & patience, thankfulness & respect for all things, awareness & common sense, self-confidence, problem solving and more. In the process, participants of our outdoor adventure camp gain an unforgettable experience, make enduring friendships and develop a foundation of experiencing themselves and the earth in a whole new, yet very old way.

Yet all this is just the beginning. Year after year, our campers tell us that their most memorable experiences are those that offer them the greatest challenge and ask the most of them. These more intensive activities are never the same and always epic fun. In the past some have included:

  • Nighttime scout games that draw forth great stealth and hone the senses to a keen edge.
  • Group wilderness survival camp outs where small groups leave our base camp to practice wilderness survival skills - we build and sleep in our own natural shelters, supplement our meals with wild edible plants, and make fire the old way with a bow and drill kit.
  • Intense action archery games using handmade wooden bows and safe, padded foam arrows.
  • For the older and more mature teens, wilderness survival solos. This is the one activity we get the most requests for, as it serves as the ultimate test and initiation for an older teen to build their own natural shelter, make fire by friction, harvest wild edible plants, and purify their own water. Beyond this, it is a quest for something much deeper that will impact their whole beings - belief in themselves, genuine competence acknowledged by their community, and an indescribable felt sense of connection and oneness with the wilderness.

Campers and Instructors

Our overnight camps are co-ed. The ratio of boys to girls is typically 50/50, but can change from year to year. Maximum enrollment is 30 kids per week of overnight camp. We have both female and male instructors and the staff to camper ratio is approximately 1 to 6 or better.

Location

Our overnight camps are held at Medicine Circle Eco-Retreat Center located north of Priest River, Idaho. Medicine Circle is a natural, simple, unique, off-the-grid setting that is perfect for our overnight camps. Overnight campers get to experience a simple life close to the earth. Tipis and yurts provide shelter, stars and campfires light the night, and you won't find a single computer or smartphone, but rather a much greater connection with the forests, meadows, and streams. We offer a safe and comfortable camp experience where kids can experience a slower, more natural way of life unique from our fast paced everyday modern experience.

Sleeping Arrangements

Campers sleep in traditional tipis and yurts. These are simple shelters that still allow kids to be close to the earth. Campers and instructors spend most of the week together at base camp, with occasional day trips away from base camp. Once a week, the group typically leaves base camp for a single overnight adventure where campers build and sleep in primitive wilderness shelters. Every night, boys and girls sleep in separate shelters and camp areas for privacy, and there is always a same gender staff who sleeps in their immediate vicinity.

Bathrooms, Showers and Water

We have off-the grid solar-powered showers and no-flush composting toilets that are clean, safe, and good for the earth. There are separate bathrooms for each gender to have privacy. Our solar showers offer hot running water. Fresh drinking water comes from an on site well.

Meals

All meals are provided, and served fresh from our outdoor kitchen. We do our best to serve meals that resemble what many kids might eat at home, from spaghetti and meatballs to soup, salads, burritos and burgers. If your child has different dietary eating habits please let us know in advance so we can do our best to support them to have a great experience with the food we are serving. Our cooks can accommodate most dietary needs including vegan, vegetarian, wheat free, and dairy free diets, as long as you clearly communicate with us well in advance so we can prepare accordingly.

Thanks for preparing such a great week for the kids and doing such a great job mentoring human beings. We LOVED LOVED LOVED the instructors, they were all exceptional, exceptional people. The kids returned peaceful, introspective, brimming with skills and content. I will do my best to steward the flame which you have helped ignite.

I know you will be happy to know that Isabel declared deep in the night before bed, 'Mom! I took risks and I liked it! I was outgoing and I liked it! I made so many more friends that way and got to know them in a deep way.' I hope you can hear the singing from where you are and feel the throwing sticks hitting the earth and smell the sap collected from a neighbor's tree... your work lives on.”

I am happy to report that Tristan had a wonderful time at Twin Eagles summer overnight camp. I simply cannot thank them enough for giving him such an incredible life-altering experience. He learned to carve a bow, make arrows, make and use a bow drill to 'bust' embers for camp fires, track animals, imitate bird songs and identify plants. Best of all, in his own words, he learned how to find his warrior 'center', walk lightly and cautiously 'like a fox' and use his 'owl eyes' for seeing all things at once and the connectedness between the natural world and himself.

In days and nights filled with activities, he also practiced sitting quietly and communing with nature in his very own 'sit spot' that made him feel happy and comforted, or as he said 'grounded to the earth and connected to the trees and sky'. His week was filled with activities that nurtured body and soul. He played hard in all-community games that encouraged them all to be brave as self and strong as group within a very real, and living, tribal-style kinship.

Overall Tristan was the recipient of so much support, love and understanding that observing it in action yesterday was almost mind and heart boggling. After a day of presentations to the families that were filled with stories and memories that honored both the challenges and freewheeling good times undertaken by all, I could not help but cry when I saw him hugging each of the campers and counselors goodbye and seeing how they were giving him, in return, genuine affection. Afterwards on the drive home I said 'Tristan I have never known you to have so many friends!' And he replied, 'they are not my friends, they are my other family.'

On the drive home he treated us with his personal stories, the rules to best conduct favorite games, his proudest moments, his best memories and his favorite songs from the week's journey. I am so grateful and so touched by how all the amazing people at Twin Eagles lovingly walked our son through what has turned out to be, perhaps, the most significant and positive learning experience he has ever gone through away from home. I can't say enough about how lucky we were to find them and have him take part in the last week of their summer program, except to say to them and the universe: Thank you, thank you, thank you.”

- Alison Barrows-Young
