The Campground at Heartland encorporates a new kind of camping, one with a collective experience at its core. Many Nomadic traditions of Central Asia, from the Mongols and even before, had the camp as its stronghold. The camp, or Ordu, was a unit which transcended even the tribe and was focused around a central theme.
The central theme at Heartland is one of living in wild nature and being transformed by interacting with the power of the place itself alongside living more connected to a whole, in nomadic tents. These dwellings are yurts set in a hamlet of tents in the forests and clearings of this beautiful place. If you have never had the experience of stepping into a yurt, be prepared to say ‘wow’ as you enter a cathedral of framed wood and canvas. The central window looks out to the sky, and the feeling of a circular space is unique. Sleeping on the Earth, gazing up at the stars (seeing a shooting one if you’re lucky) is an unforgettable, healing experience.
