2017 Summer Institute

June 20-23, 2017

Landis Valley's oldest educational program is back with exciting trips, informative lectures, and, of course, classes in many different Pennsylvania German arts, crafts, and trades.

Check back soon for class list.  Prospective students who wish to register before the classes are posted will be put onto a waiting list.  LVA members:  due to the high cost of printing, we are no longer printing catalogs for Summer Insitute.  Because of this, advance notice of the Institute class list is no longer a benefit of membership, but you still can enjoy a 5% discount on Summer Institute classes.

Registration Information:

Registrations are accepted by mail, e-mail and phone and are recorded in order of arrival.  Some classes fill quickly, so please indicate a second choice.  Please note that prices quoted include a catered breakfast and lunch in the Yellow Barn each day for Institute participants.  If you choose to forgo the meals, please indicate this on you registration sheet.  With the new no-meals option, subtract $20 per day you are participating in Institute.

Consider joining the Landis Valley Associates!  In addition to free daily admission, LVA members at levels up to Patron receive 5% off their Institute registration. Patron members and above receive 15% off registration.

Landis Valley also offers tuition assistance to high school juniors & seniors, college & graduate students, and museum professionals. Contact the museum for more information or to apply.

Registrations will be taken up until June 2. We reserve the right to cancel a class due to insufficient registration.  Students can make another choice or receive a full refund.  A letter confirming your registration will be mailed or e-mailed and will include a list of materials/tools you may need.

Students must be age 18 or older.
