Camp Lutherlyn is a private campground located on 660 acres of scenic woods in Butler County that offers environmental education. There are accessible restrooms and showers. There is a large picnic pavilion and fire ring.  Campers must provide their own tent and camping gear. No RVs are permitted.  Rain gear and camp chairs are a must. Let us know if you have dietary restrictions or allergies.  Children must be supervised at all times by the parent or accompanying adult(s).  PAFF and its designees assume no responsibility for children.  No pets are allowed at Camp Lutherlyn.

This is a RAIN-OR-SHINE event. The weather in June is unpredictable and prone to showers and frequent changes.  If you are prepared, it should not interfere with most of the planned activities.  However, the G&K Campout is subject to cancellation in the event of local severe weather or threats to public safety.  In which case, refunds will be offered less processing fees.

Cancellations 7-days before will receive 100% refund minus processing fees.  Cancellations within 7-days of the event will receive 50% refund minus the processing fees.  NO SHOWS or cancellations on the day of the event will NOT receive refunds.  Your registration is transferrable.  If you cannot attend the event, you may send another person in your place.  

Fireflies are creatures of nature.  PAFF has been monitoring and keeping data on firefly activity in these campsites for a number of years.  However, firefly emergence and flashing displays are prone to temperatures and weather conditions.  There are no guarantees nor assurances that campers will see Synchronous fireflies on the night of the scheduled campout.  The G&K programs are designed to educate campers about fireflies and provide enough information that they will be able to discover and observe fireflies on their own at a future date.

Ten lucky persons (not including children under 10 yrs.) will be accepted into the Glow and Know experience to ensure a low impact, safe, and engaging event for all. Physical distancing (6ft) will be observed during all group activities. Safe food handling will be practiced. Participants assume all responsibility for any and all risk of possible exposure to the COVID-19.  Please do not attend if you, or anyone in your party, has been exposed to COVID-19 within the last 2 weeks.
Participants will be asked to withdraw from the event if they have a fever or present other symptoms of illness without refunds.

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.
