Youth Activities Center
The Youth Activities Center (known as the YAC) is a drop-in center for kids ages 12–17. 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 “kid” prices), a friendly staff, televisions, games, table tennis and pool tables.
The YAC is open Monday through Friday during the Summer Assembly Season.
Covid-19 Protocols: Chautauqua Institution will communicate with registrants regarding 2022 COVID-19 protocols for Youth and Family Programs prior to the 2022 Summer Assembly, likely in early June. The protocols will be developed according to industry best practices, the most recent data and applicable regulations, and subject to change throughout the summer if and when those factors change.
