Since it began as an educational experiment in 1874, Chautauqua Institution has grown into a mecca for lifelong learners. Situated on the picturesque shores of Lake Chautauqua in western New York, the Chautauqua Institution is known for its bustling summer season. This unique Chautauqua experience takes place in “off-season” of fall and spring, and it lets you and your fellow Road Scholars get the grounds mostly to yourself. Enjoy exclusive Road Scholar courses while staying on the institution’s peaceful, scenic grounds. During your stay, explore exciting themes such as art, music, literature, science, politics, religion, and more. Get ready for the educational opportunity of a lifetime!
