Chautauqua was alive with activity leading up to the start of the 2022 Summer Assembly season. In a span of two weeks, over 1,000 Chautauqua County students from 13 schools had a chance to spend a day on the grounds, exploring a variety of activities inspired by Chautauqua’s four pillars: arts, education, religion and recreation.
Students toured exhibitions in Strohl Art Center, got an up-close look from SUNY Fredonia scientists at work related to Chautauqua Lake, wrote poems in the Poetry Makerspace, engaged in civil dialogue on Bestor Plaza, practiced mindfulness in the Hall of Philosophy, watched a Chautauqua Regional Youth Ballet performance in the Amphitheater – and more.
Early summer field trips to the grounds have taken place for many years, but, this season, Chautauqua Arts Education worked with colleagues across the Institution’s programming teams to include a wider variety of activities across the Institution’s core pillars.
Explore Chautauqua Field Trips will continue with students from around Chautauqua County returning to the grounds ahead of the 2023 season.
