Camp Heartland was founded in 1993 by 22-year-old Neil Willenson to provide children impacted by HIV/AIDS with "the best week of their lives." Since then, we have welcomed hundreds of children each year to be part of our year-round community. Camp Heartland is a beautiful 80-acre Camp and Conference Center located in Willow River, Minn., 90 miles north of the Twin Cities and just a 45 minute drive from Duluth.
