Enjoy an education vacation for the whole family

Our weeklong summer courses for adults run alongside our youth program, so while the kids are at camp, you can enjoy courses taught by Cornell faculty in subjects from art, science, and world affairs to cooking, birding, and sailing.

Many classes include field trips and visits with guest speakers. Students from all backgrounds and abilities, whether singles, couples, families, or groups of friends, are welcome to participate in any of our courses.

Activities for kids are also offered from dinner until bedtime, leaving you free to take part in evening adult programs or enjoy games and events with your family.
