What to Bring

What to Bring to Chautauqua Center

To make your stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible, we suggest you bring the following:
  • Casual, layerable clothing appropriate to the season
  • Clothing appropriate for the program
  • Sweater or light jacket for air-conditioned classrooms
  • Coat or jacket for occasional cold or windy days
  • Hat
  • Comfortable shoes
  • Umbrella or rain gear (just in case!)
  • Earplugs (if you are a light sleeper)
  • Notebook and pen or pencil
  • Flashlight for walking after dark
  • Medications
  • Camera

When packing for your program, please keep in mind that the dress in Ashland is casual, even for the theatre! If you would like to dress up, you are certainly welcome to do so, but it is not required. If you are staying at Southern Oregon University and enjoy swimming, you may wish to bring a swimsuit and towel. The Ashland YMCA is fairly close and has open swim hours. There is a fee for use of the pool.

Stratford Inn lodgers will have access to the hotel’s Indoor Pool and Hot Tub!
