A place for all

Many families are searching for a place to rest, renew and reconnect. At the heart of the Lakeside experience is the unique Chautauqua programming — a perfect balance of cultural arts, education, recreation and religion. The experience is a step back in time to a place where values, traditions and family remain the focus.
