Welcome To Heartland!

Nestled in the midst of hundreds of scenic acres, Heartland is the ideal place for your school’s outdoor education experience. It’s also the perfect spot for retreats, conferences, training events, and personal getaways.

Teachers and students appreciate the comfort of our air-conditioned, carpeted housing, as well as Heartland’s commitment to excellence in all we do. Heartland’s campus is conveniently located about 35 minutes north of Columbus, Ohio, within a three-hour drive of most major Ohio metropolitan areas, with easy access by interstate highway.

While site and facilities are extremely important, Heartland is a place for people – people of all ages. It is a place where people experience the beauty of nature. It is a place where people learn and grow. It is an exciting place of discovery. We invite you to discover all that Heartland has to offer your school and look forward to the opportunity to serve you and your students!

To encourage hands-on discovery, teamwork, personal growth and an appreciation for the environment through a fun, safe, quality program.
Our outdoor education program meets and exceeds state academic standards on a variety of subjects, giving hands-on reinforcement to what is taught in the classroom. We have an experienced, full-time staff eager to teach and offer a quality camp experience for public, private, and home schools from the central Ohio region.
Heartland Outdoor School is part of Heartland Conference Retreat Center. For more information on everything that Heartland has to offer, visit HeartlandRetreat.com.
