One Heartland is a sleep-away camp in Willow River (one and a half hours north of the Twin Cities) designed for children "facing social isolation, intolerance or serious health challenges". Created in 1993, the camp program strives to be a a welcoming, bully-free environment while teaching hands-on learning and life-skills in a summer camp setting.
Mission and Vision:
Improve the lives of children, youth and families facing significant health challenges or social isolation.
A world where everyone feels appreciated, celebrated and free of stigma and discrimination. We want a community where individuals have the opportunity to learn and grow so that they may lead healthier and more productive lives.
