Chautauqua to be featured on ‘CBS Sunday Morning”

Chautauqua Institution will be featured this weekend on “CBS Sunday Morning” in a story about the growing trend of adults seeking summer camps for an education and not just leisure.

The program, anchored by Charles Osgood, will air from 9 to 10:30 a.m.

A CBS crew with reporter Luke Burbank spent July 2 on the grounds to interview patrons and staff, and film programming, including former U.S. poet laureate Robert Pinsky as he delivered a lecture on his book “The Sounds of Poetry” in the Hall of Philosophy, as well as an evening performance by the Chautauqua Symphony Orchestra.

The institution is featured alongside other adult summer camps, such as a rock ’n’ roll camp and Camp Wandawega in Wisconsin. The segment will look at Chautauqua’s history as a destination for those interested in learning on their vacation, as well as its status as a cultural institution.
