Welcome back to Lakeside!
While this is not a traditional season, you and your loved ones can still take part in the Lakeside Chautauqua experience.

It's exciting to see so many friends and families back on the grounds learning, laughing, sailing, biking and spending quality time together. We're also happy to see so many of you participating in the Chautauqua programs.

One program taking place this summer is The Underground/Teen Center, led by Chase McCarty, a student employee enrolled at Bowling Green State University. This is McCarty's second year as Teen Leader, and although the teen activities may look a little different, he's still just as excited to work at Lakeside.

Just as Lakeside makes a significant impact on you and your family, it also shapes the lives of seasonal student workers.
“Working as the Teen Leader last year inspired me to change my undergraduate major to follow a career path I'm truly passionate about,” said McCarty.

Before working at Lakeside, he was a biology major. But after working as the Teen Leader, McCarty knew that this was an age group he wanted to work with in his future career. He is now double majoring in psychology and plans to go into youth counseling and therapy after he graduates in the fall.

Are you interested in supporting seasonal student workers, like McCarty, who are involved in meaningful work that benefits your family and the Lakeside community? 
Your donation will make a significant impact on a student's life
Lakeside needs your help to underwrite seasonal employees who are forever changed by their Lakeside experience. You can underwrite a seasonal student employee with a donation of $4,000.

You can also give a monthly gif t of $333 to fund a seasonal employee. Monthly gifts allow you to give in manageable increments through convenient automatic deductions from your credit card, debit card or checking account. These transactions are processed through our secure credit card system and allow you to support Lakeside all year long.
Seasonal employees offer significant support during the busy summer season. They help complete tasks that are critical to creating the Chautauqua experience you know and love. Due to COVID-19-related budget cuts, Lakeside is not able to hire many of these vital seasonal employees.

While COVID-19 is still affecting all of us personally, emotionally and financially, we hope that you will consider donating in support of seasonal student workers so they can continue to better our community and have life changing experiences at Lakeside.
