Here is what others have to say about the magic of Two Coyotes.
Two Coyotes has been a life saver for us. It’s given me back my happy, cheerful, enthusiastic kid and I couldn’t be more grateful. The program has been invaluable to my son and our family. It’s our favorite day of the week!
When I see my son come out of the woods at Two Coyotes I see his spirit alive. I see the boy he’s meant to be and all the amazing possibilities that lie ahead. It’s exciting.
Two Coyotes is truly an incredible program. The wealth of knowledge, degrees and expertise possessed by the staff is top notch. Yet everyone is so humble. They are warm, welcoming, patient and nurturing. All the wonderful qualities necessary to empower children to be all they can be. The staff have become like family to us and it’s evident how much they care for my child.
I can’t say enough wonderful things about this program and staff. Two Coyotes is the perfect environment to complement what children learn in school and prepare them for life. My son’s soul dances at Two Coyotes. And there’s a level of acceptance that’s unparalleled elsewhere.
It was fun identifying plants and making medicine. We hiked, learned how to build a fire and weaved baskets. I loved waiting for the “surprise” at the labyrinth and spending time with old and new friends. I had a lot of fun.
Both Lily & Oliver thoroughly loved their camp experience at Two Coyotes. I am a single parent and his father lives in the UK…he does not see him often. The Wildwood Rangers gave him just what he needed–a great outdoor experience with terrific counselors and fellow campers who pushed Oliver and gave him much self confidence! We are looking forward to our next session back with Two Coyotes in a few weeks.
Thank you for giving Grant and Skylar a memorable experience on the overnight. They are happy, exhausted, and full of stories to tell. This is the stuff of which good childhood memories are made.
A sincere thank you to all the staff members at Two Coyotes at Holcomb Farm in Granby. Spencer can’t stop talking about what an amazing day he had. He was the dirtiest I have seen him yet, which is saying A LOT. Apparently the dirtier they are, the more fun they have had! I can’t imagine letting my son cover his entire body with mud WHILE fully clothed. And that is exactly why I cherish his time with you. Thank you so much for providing my son with such an enriching, magical experience. Can’t wait until next week.
Oh my gosh, Matthew had the BEST time yesterday. I knew he would once he got there but WOW! I can’t tell you what we went through with the lead up to this. He told me that this was his favorite thing, that in most camps you learn one thing in a week but here you learn about 20 things in an hour. I also think it gave him some renewed confidence that he got through it and enjoyed it.
For me, Two Coyotes was so much more than just a wilderness nature program. It is mindful and incorporated indigenous songs and story. Julia’s life was forever changed by the program. She attended a 6 hour program every Tuesday this past Fall. Her confidence and willingness to take risks soared. Her love for nature and all its inhabitants swelled. I plan on always having Two Coyotes in our family’s life.
I’d like you to know that Glenn & I feel incredibly blessed that the universe brought Two Coyotes into Jack’s life. Learning about the wilderness, connecting with the earth, challenging himself to stretch and grow, and discovering the incredible care and support of a mentor – all of this has been life changing for Jack. Jack has his struggles – I suppose we all do – he’s just encountered them at a younger age than many of us do. Even as a little boy he was very much an old soul. I cannot even begin to tell you how much happier he is since becoming involved with Two Coyotes. It’s as though he has finally found “his people.” Your presence in our life is truly a gift. Thank you.
I knew Gwen had a great time at her class because she would talk about what she did all week and even now, weeks later, will mention little things she learned there that I didn’t know she knew. What I found extraordinary was during the last class (I tagged along), the instructors had the kids sit together and told each child why they were so special to the group and of the attributes they saw in each person. Not only was it great to hear someone say such wonderful things about my child, but the kids were beaming after that. It was so personal and I think that is something quite valuable. I highly recommend the program and my kids will definitely attend in the future.
I just want to reiterate that the instructors have impressed me so much with their enthusiasm, creativity and ability to inspire the children (as well as being great at dealing with their various needs and issues with each other). I recommend this program wholeheartedly, and hope that many of you will consider this program for your own children.
You would have been proud to see the boys on our hike the other day. They showed me Solomon’s Seal and False Solomon’s Seal; pointed out the differences; dug up the root and showed me the colors (and brought it home and ate the right one); talked about dwarf ginseng (Emerson licked his lips), spotted sassafras, chives, and garlic mustard…
Esme had an amazing time yesterday. She and Declan were dueling into the night. She was on a high, filled with energy. She is really looking forward to the next date. Thank you!
Ike enjoyed Saturday’s ranger class so much–he came home and was simply bubbling over–that yesterday he spent a few hours making two swords of his own. He wanted me to be sure and tell you how inspiring the class was.
