2023 marks the 10-year anniversary of FHC Ohioana. We are delighted to return to Lutheran Hills Camp & Retreat Center in Morgantown, Indiana. This venue features a variety of accommodations, miles of hiking trails, boating and fishing at an on-site lake, a life-guarded swimming pool, a hammock garden and gaga pit, lots of playing fields, indoor meeting spaces and organic food served at every meal.

This spectacular 35-acre summer camp and retreat center is located 15 miles northwest of Bloomington in picturesque Brown County, Indiana. Various lodging options are available, from outdoor tent camping to cozy cottages with full kitchens and baths. The main lodge facility is utilized for gatherings and meals. Opportunities for activities abound with a life-guarded swimming pool, a 17-acre lake for boating and fishing, 7 miles of hiking trails, numerous fields and courts for sports activities, and multiple campfire locations. 


All meals are provided by the venue and feature wholesome, healthy options with organic, local ingredients whenever possible. Meal preparation and clean-up is provided by Lutheran Hills staff.

Why Family Heart Camp?

HEART stands for Harmony, Ease, Authenticity, Respect, and Trust, important family values that Nonviolent Communication supports us in living, both at camp and in the wider world.


Lutheran Hills offers three types of lodging for Family HEART Campers. NOTE: You will need to bring your own bedding for the shared cabins and tent camping.

Cottage / Lodge: Indoor accommodations featuring private rooms with shared bathrooms and central air conditioning. Pillows and linens are provided. 

Shared Cabin: Indoor accommodations featuring bunkbeds in an air conditioned, shared space. You bring your own bedding (linens, blankets or sleeping bags, pillows) or these items are available to rent for a small, additional fee. Each cabin sleeps up to 13 people, so smaller families will likely be asked to share a cabin. Depending on size and availability, larger families may be able to have an entire cabin to themselves. The bathrooms and shower facility are a short walk away from the cabins.

Tent Camping: Five electrical hook-ups are provided around the campground. There are ample basic camping sites available around the lake, and campers have access to a bathhouse with toilets and showers. Campers are responsible for providing all of their own camping equipment.

Payment Options: 

Charge or Check. If you prefer to pay by check, use the discount code "PAYBYCHECK" (no spaces). You will receive an email confirmation with payment instructions.
*Alternate Financing: If you would like to request alternate strategies for financing, please reach out to our Camp Host here before filling out your registration form.

Support for Family Heart Camp Ohioana

The fee for attending camp covers Lutheran Hills fees, insurance and minimal material costs. About $3000-$4000 of the remaining costs come from donations! Totally wow. So... any donations to make camp a reality for all who want to attend, and to cover our additional operating costs and expenses are super duper appreciated.
