  • The day I went there was a man who had won many awards of economy giving a talk. Found me it very interesting. It is a beautiful, picturesque location and where you can go to enjoy the Lake, of the lectures. The place has many sculptures and some shops where you can buy souvenirs to bring them to your friends and loved ones!

  • This is a special place. I call it an island of peace and intelligence. Check out the upcoming programs - they're known the world over for their quality and integrity.
  • My family has been coming here since before I was born. It is now my 30th summer. I LOVE this place. It's a home away from home. There's always something to do, for all age groups. Just arriving and going through the gate takes a huge weight off your shoulders. The grounds are beautiful, the air is crisp and clean. This place is a Haven.
  • Paid $43 a ticket for general admission to see Harry Potter in concert. We arrive, a little late mind you, to find standing room only. I don't understand how they get away with selling more tickets than they have seats. No where I saw was I warned of this possibility. If I had I would not have purchased the tickets. Only thing that is preventing me from rating lower is the fact that the orchestra was splendid.
  • Truly a place of peace: community, learning, worship, the arts and fun. Each week of the summer, there is a different theme! Entertainment every night from Bach to The Beach Boys!
  • Have loved this place for years. Week one left us with mixed thoughts. Enjoyed worship and organ, good young speakers, dancers, and our favorite symphony and pianist. However, Jay Leno's jokes were inappropriate for youth, causing 11 year old to be taken home. Problems came with sound system in the amphitheater, especially for the handicapped in scooters, now relegated to the back platform, who must abide unthinking and rude people who talk beside and behind them during performances and speakers.
