Take a Class at Bay View


Bay View’s Education program provides an incredible range of learning opportunities for members and guests of all ages. Enthusiastic and professional teachers from all over the country offer a terrific array of classes in seven curricular areas: visual arts, health and fitness,  culinary arts, gardening, bridge, discussion groups, and kids’ classes.

Our lifelong learning approach is scheduled in a way that is sensitive to your busy lifestyle. Some of our courses meet only once for a couple of hours, while others may meet for just three or four sessions. Often classes meet just once a week on a day that is right for you. NOTE: Courses may be dropped for refund up to three business days before the start of the first session; and for art, craft or food classes, up to seven business days before the first session.
