Did you know the Bay View Association offers educational classes and seminars open to the public every summer?

Centrally located on Little Traverse Bay, the Bay View Association is a Chautauqua registered on the National Register of Historic Places. Since 1875, the summer community has offered the area educational opportunities for all ages. Learn how to make cheese, meditate, weave textiles, write songs, or play Mahjong.  Participate in a virtual or in-person cooking class, study the history of Islam, and get creative with a dance class or an art class like watercolor journaling, acrylic painting, or collage. For a full course list, calendar, and registration, check out BayViewAssociation.org/education/.

In addition to educational classes, Bay View offers several free seminars throughout the summer. The Scarrow Friday Forums will inform us about our local Great Lakes region, current political science topics, behavioral health, and humanity in outer space. We will be hosting Saturday morning seminars with presentations and discussions on current cultural topics like race relations and LGTBQ+. These seminars will provide insight into important current events.

We hope you experience summer with us!
