Lutherlyn (LEEP) is an answer for teachers looking for a way to get their students to a place designed to open their eyes and challenge their thinking. LEEP is located in Prospect, Pennsylvania, approximately 35 miles north of Pittsburgh. It offers a variety of unique opportunities for teachers and students to experience the excitement of the natural world! Educational groups can come for the day or stay overnight, and are sure to find their field trip informative and worthwhile.
The LEEP program is flexible enough to customize every field trip to meet your environmental education needs, and offers activities appropriate for ages from pre-school to adult. Lutherlyn also sweetens the pot by offering Maple Sugaring field trips (day and overnight) during February and March. The Maple Sugaring program is appropriate for all age levels. The field trip seasons tend to fill up quickly, so educators are encouraged to schedule early.
Terra Dei Homestead, the first Straw Bale House in Pennsylvania, is located at Camp Lutherlyn. Tours and activities related to sustainable lifestyles and alternative energy are offered at Terra Dei as part of the LEEP program, or as separate field trips.
Camp Lutherlyn also has an extensive Ropes Course and trained facilitators ready to help students develop teamwork skills, build self-confidence, and succeed at challenges they may not have thought they were capable of. This group-building event is available to ages 4th grade and up.
Teacher Training workshops are offered in the Fall and Spring at Camp Lutherlyn. The LEEP directors run weekend training events in the following educational curricula: Project Wild, Project Learning Tree, and Keystone Aquatic Resource Education (KARE).
