Marijenkampen is a small village in Steenwijkerland, a municipality in the province Overijssel in the Netherlands. At the beginning of the 20th century the area was called Huttenberg and was overgrown with heath. The first inhabitants were people who had been banned from the neighbouring colony Willemsoord, founded by the Society of Beneficence. These inhabitants settled in and led an independent life. Nowadays about 250 people live in Marijenkampen.
