Vacation Learning Adventures in Western New York
Welcome to the World's Vacation Learning Center! For well over a century, visitors and residents of Chautauqua County have been engaging in and promoting learning for the sake of... well, having fun. We've been gathering at lakeside assemblies and summer camps, attending cultural performances, and welcoming world travelers and guests searching for a place for personal growth. Each summer, Chautauqua Institution offers hundreds of classes for youth and adults in subjects ranging from music to fitness through its Special Studies program. Area attractions and instructors offer dozens of workshops from growing hops to foraging for wild edibles duiring Spring and Fall learning seasons - Chautauqua in Spring and the Colors of Chautauqua. Take a Chautauqua vacation and learn something new and fun. See the Learning on Vacation calendar for dates and times of scheduled workshops or look below for more general learning opportunities.
