Threshold Learning Center is 28 acres of prairie, creek, woods, and our barn dormitory.  Threshold is first, an outdoor learning center for schools during the school year, and a summer camp offering several day camps, family camps, and trips.  As a non-profit, however, we are constantly trying to find a way to  offer our programs to everyone regardless of whether they are able to pay our fees while still making enough money to stay open.  We started renting TLC to the public 5 years ago for weddings, reunions, or just families who are looking to connect to the world around them.  Our motto is "No Child Left Inside" and we want every inner child to enjoy what we have at TLC.  We have 7 bedrooms in our dormitory, 5 camp sites, a large camp fire ring, a mini-golf course, and we are always willing to lead your group in an educational experience or take you on a hayrack ride.

Great Stay!
Perfect stay! Beautiful and peaceful. Great stop on our trip. Gretta let our girls use the arts and crafts on a rainy night and all the amenities were a welcome addition to our stay. Would stay again without hesitation.

Perfect location for a little getaway. Loved the open spaces outside and especially the fire pit. Gretta made everything so easy- we will definitely be back!!!

TLC Camping
I very much enjoyed my stay at TLC! I was looking for a quiet weekend and TLC was the perfect place. The TLC property is wonderful. Gretta and the on-site hosts were also wonderful and very accommodating. There’s also a county park with a lake about 1/2 mile away. My dog and I went for a couple walks over there. I will definitely try to get back to TLC again and recommend others check it out!

TLC Barn Dormitory & Camping
This was our second hipcamp experience. This was a nice place to stay. We enjoyed ourselves. The host is super nice. The barn itself is really neat. The bathroom was clean. It was raining when we were here so we did not get to enjoy the fire pit or the outdoor areas. She supplied the blankets and bath towels, there was hand soap and bath soap. The barn has an upstairs loft that was real neat too. It was chilly at night when we were there, and she supplied a heater for our room and the barn itself has heat as well. We were there in off season, so things were very quiet. We only stayed one night but would defintely stay there again if we are ever in the area. Thank you for a lovely stay!!

Gretta and her family were amazing hosts! We had such a great time in the barn. The fire pit is an awesome space, and we were so happy with how welcoming they were to our dogs. Highly recommend this location if you're looking for an escape.

TLC Camping
We were the only campers and had full access to all facilities, and welcomed by very nice folks and invited to use the wood on site to build a fire. We ended up leaving quite early as the wind kicked up, but a lovely place not too far out of the way.
