Chautauqua’s programs for youth present a diversity of activity, in settings varied and historic. From pre-school to day camp, from sports instruction to informal youth centers, from enrichment classes to entertainment, and from reading to experiences in the arts, these programs offer opportunities to explore the Chautauqua experience. At the same time, youth are encouraged to grow in independence, make choices, take responsibility and celebrate family time, all in the safe and supportive community that is Chautauqua.

Boys’ and Girls’ Club offers a varied recreational day camp program for ages 7–15 including swimming, kayaking, sailing, field games, nature study and arts experiences. Children’s School is a developmental preschool for youth ages 3-5 offering a wide range of social, recreational and educational activities. Group One, designed for children who will enter first grade in the fall serves as a transition between Children’s School and Boys’ and Girls’ Club. The Youth Activities Center (middle and high school age) and College Club (17 years and up) provide welcoming sites for informal social, recreational and entertainment activities.
