Lutherlyn is located 40 miles north of Pittsburgh off of Route 422 between Butler and Prospect. The best routes to Route 422 are Interstate 79 or Route 8.
Meetings are held in the Redwood Building located three buildings down on the right when you get back into the main part of Lutherlyn, which is approximately a mile from the entrance off Dick Road. There is a small parking lot that says "loading & unloading" and "handicap" right next to Redwood building. There are only 5-6 spaces there, and we can use all of them, but no more than that will fit in there, so please reserve these for people that need close parking or to unload items and then move to another spot.
From the West: Take Interstate 79 to Route 422 (the Butler/New Castle exit) and head east 8.2 miles. Make a right hand turn at the 84 Lumber onto Dick Road. The main entrance to the camp is 1.5 miles down the road. The camp driveway will take you directly to the main parking lot and the camp office.
From the East: Take Route 8 to Route 422 and head west (towards New Castle) 7 miles to the 84 Lumber. Make a left hand turn on to Dick Road. The main entrance is 1.5 miles down the road. The camp driveway will take you directly to the main parking lot and the camp office.
