Volunteer Opportunities

Lutherlyn Work Days

Spring Work Day
Saturday, April 27, 2024

9:00 am - 4:00 pm

It takes a lot of hands to prepare Lutherlyn for the thousands of people who will visit throughout the spring and summer.  In addition to our quickly approaching Summer Camp programs, Lutherlyn also hosts thousands of people who visit on Environmental Education field trips, participate in Adventure and team building programs, and take lessons at the Equestrian Center.  

Flower beds need to be weeded, firewood needs to be cut, fences need to be repaired, sticks and leaves need to be removed, as well as a variety of other jobs for volunteers of all ages and skill levels.  

Lutherlyn provides all of the tools (and a lunch prepared by Chef Lisa) and our volunteers provide the willing hands!  

We are looking for responsible chainsaw owners to bring a chainsaw and cut up some down trees for us. You can take logs with you to split for firewood.

If you have any questions feel free to contact the Development Office at or 724-865-2161.  

We can't do it without you!

  • There are tasks for volunteers of all ages and skill levels
    • Volunteers can be individuals, families, or groups of all kinds.  If you are part of a group who would like to tackle a project together please let us us know ahead of time.  Please provide an approximate number of people in your group and what level of physical activity would be a good fit (or any special construction skills you may have) so we select a project and gather the necessary tools and supplies.
  • Snacks and lunch are provided
  • Examples of Work Day projects include:
    • raking and blowing leaves
    • picking up sticks (this is an enormous help before spring mowing begins!)
    • splitting wood
    • clearing leaves and tidying the amphitheater
    • removing sticks and placing mulch around ropes course elements
    • removing weeds at the beach of lower lake
