Minister Creek is a primitive campsite.  You will need to bring your own tent and camping gear.  Raingear and camp chairs are a must.  We will provide all the cooking gear and firewood.  There are no electric hookups or running water.  There are vault toilets.  There is no reliable cell service, so you can truly UNPLUG for the day.  

PAFF will also provide a wireless listening device for participants to use during the programs to aid in social distancing.

This is a rain or shine event, however, it is subject to cancellation in the event of severe weather or threats to public safety.  In which case, you will receive a refund. The fireflies are also highly sensitive to cold, and if the nighttime temperatures drop below 60 degrees, they do not fly.  

PAFF is a registered 501(c)3 and proceeds benefit our mission to educate the public and raise awareness about all the fireflies in NW Pennsylvania and help to support the research of our interns.
