Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.


Golden Thread Camp is a chartered body of Ordo Templi Orientis, U.S.A. Our purpose is to raise awareness of the Law of Thelema and Liber AL vel Legis through professionalism, consistency and dedication. We provide a safe space which supports individual development within a community of like-minded individuals. Our members encourage self-knowledge, self-discipline, self-respect, individual liberty and universal brotherhood while opposing tyranny, superstition and oppression.

To this end, we offer educational and social events such as classes, rituals and discussion groups for both members of O.T.O. and to the public. Furthermore, we conduct sacramental rites in accordance with Ecclesia Gnostica Catholica and facilitate initiatory rites into Mysteria Mystica Maxima.

Love is the law, love under will.

Front of building – as seen from Camp Horne Rd.

Golden Thread Camp is located at 300 Camp Horne Rd. Pittsburgh, PA. 15202 Suite #274. There are two ways to enter into our space.

Front Entrance

There is parking available in the front of the building. The door to enter our part of the building is to the right of the marquee sign and has the number 300 on it. Once inside there will be signs directing you to suite #274. Just look for the name Golden Thread!

Back Entrance

There is additional parking behind our building, with an entry door that leads more directly to our space. To use this entry, you will need to find the metal steps leading up to the outside door. The door will have a Golden Thread sign on it. Once inside, look straight ahead for the door with a the Golden Thread sign on it. 

A couple of notes about using this back entrance:

1) Although this is the most direct way in to our Temple, we do not recommend it if you are wearing heels, or if it is icy.

2) The entrance to the back parking lot is located to the right when looking at our building (pictured below). Turning into the back parking lot from Camp Horne Rd (coming from the expressway), look for the white Golden Thread sign by the telephone pole. The entrance in is right after this pole. At night this is a little tricky to find if it is your first time. Once turning in, look for the large metal steps which go directly up to the second floor (overview picture below).

3) Lastly, the handle to the outside door is not like most doors. It needs pulled upward for it to unlatch.
