One Heartland is set on 93 acres of forested land in Willow River, Minnesota, located 90 minutes from the Twin Cities. The campus includes the retreat center with arts spaces, a dance party room, dining hall and three fireplaces. Under the caring supervision of camp staff, youth sleep in cabins with easy access to flushing toilets and warm showers. Our “Club Meds” infirmary is staffed by volunteer medical professionals who provide personalized care for campers once a week.
For the past several years, campers and staff have planted a vegetable garden which produces a bounty of fresh veggies in late summer. Other outdoor activities include swimming at Noodle Beach and the pool, scaling the climbing wall, learning archery, playing team sports and exploring of the North Woods walking trails.
