Chautauqua-Wawasee (pronounced shuh-tah-kwah) provides family events in support of four pillars: arts, education, religion and recreation. Based on the original Chautauqua Institution, founded in the town of the same name in southwestern New York State in 1874, Chautauqua-Wawasee is a non-profit organization dedicated to the exploration of the best in human values and the enrichment of life through a series of programs and events. Throughout the year, programs are held in the Syracuse-Wawasee area, with many held at Oakwood Resort. http://www.chautauquawawasee.org
