Why Choose Heartland Hockey Camps?
Owned and operated by former U.S. Olympian & NHL player, Steve Jensen, Heartland Hockey Camp is the only self-contained, privately owned hockey camp in the entire world. HHC is located in Deerwood, Minnesota, the "summer vacation land of the Midwest". The camp is situated on Portage Lake, featuring 1,800 feet of shore line and is surrounded by beautiful fresh water lakes, soaring tall pine trees and rolling hills.
In 1985, Heartland Hockey Camp, in Deerwood, Minnesota, pioneered the concept of inviting parents to attend summer camp with their kids. Camp Owner & Director, Steve Jensen, recognized the need for younger aged campers, 3-8 years old, to have the emotional support of their parents while participating in a vigorous and highly competitive training environment. The Heartland Hockey Parent/Child Camps have become an overwhelming success, attracting hockey families as far away as Japan, Switzerland, Great Britain & Australia.
