LUTHERLYN ON LOCATION (Day Camp)
Unfortunately, due to a staffing shortage, LUTHERLYN ON LOCATION for the summer of 2022 is cancelled. We are hopeful that this program will return for the summer of 2023. We are sorry for this inconvenience to the host congregations and campers.
Lutherlyn and each host congregation are committed to providing a safe and fun environment for every camper to grow in their faith! We will have a great week doing lots of fun camp activities (games, nature activities, crafts, songs, stories, Bible Study, “campfire”, and lots of surprises)!
LUTHERLYN ON LOCATION is a unique blend of outdoor ministry and congregational ministry. In this joint effort between Lutherlyn and congregations, camp provides the program elements (staff, schedule, supplies, curriculum and resources) and the congregations provide volunteer helpers as needed, services, public relations, and involvement in the program as arranged by the director with the congregation's coordinator. LUTHERLYN ON LOCATION is a summer ministry for church and community youth who will be entering grades one through five the following fall.

SITES FOR SUMMER 2022 ARE ALL BOOKED
The purpose of LUTHERLYN ON LOCATION is to provide congregations with a quality Christian outdoor ministry experience with a strong outreach component. While we hope to get young people excited about camp, our bigger priority is to get them involved in congregational ministry. Congregational involvement in this joint venture (between Lutherlyn and the congregations) is extremely important because your Day Camp will be a program of youth evangelism for the church and the surrounding community.
Book A Day Camp Site!
If your church would like to host LUTHERLYN ON LOCATION, you may book beginning January 1. Each week of the summer, day camp teams travel to different congregations throughout Western Pennsylvania.
