  • Overview

    The pre-eminent expression of lifelong learning in the United States, Chautauqua Institution comes alive each summer with a unique mix of fine and performing arts, lectures, interfaith worship and programs, and recreational activities. Over the course of nine weeks, more than 100,000 people visit Chautauqua and participate in programs, classes and community events for all ages — all within the beautiful setting of a historic lakeside village. As a community, we celebrate, encourage and study the arts and treat them as integral to all of learning, and we convene the critical conversations of the day to advance understanding through civil dialogue.


    The Youth Activities Center (known as the YAC) is a drop-in center for middle and high school students on the grounds of Chautauqua Institution. Located on the south lakefront at Heinz Beach, and adjacent to the Boys' and Girls' Club campus, the YAC features a bustling snack bar (with daily lunch specials at youth-friendly prices), a friendly staff, televisions, games, table tennis and pool tables. Weekly "Yactivities" include dances with a DJ, wing night, "Sundae Monday" and Tuesday breakfast sandwiches.
