For you, a gift: Why Chautauqua often seems just as you left it

For you, a gift: Why Chautauqua often seems just as you left it

In the darkest days of winter, when the dog refuses to go outside and the car is encrusted with brown ice, the Chautauqua Season seems like an impossible dream, the one gift that is too much to ask for.

Congratulations. Your gift has arrived.

On your first evening stroll, it seems that everything on the grounds is just where you left it. That is part of what draws people back year after year. If this is your first visit, you may feel awash in a strange nostalgic déjà vu, as if you have been here in another life.

Carnegie Science Center brings events to Chautauqua all Week Nine

Carnegie Science Center brings events to Chautauqua all Week Nine

As the season winds down and staffers from Children’s Club and Boys’ and Girls’ Club return to college, the youth programs look for ways to continue providing programming for young Chautauquans.

The Carnegie Science Center has been coming to Chautauqua late in the season for more than a decade to provide science-related programming and events for Children’s School and Club.

The first event, “Geocaching on the Grounds,” will equip 15 teams with GPS units and pit them against one another in a treasure hunt.

There will be two identical sessions Saturday. The first session is from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m., and the second is from 2–4 p.m. Teams will be able to sign up on Bestor Plaza on a first-come basis.
