Enriching Lives

Bayside Institute Logo

Wellness Leadership Award Lt Governor's ChallengeHere at Bayside, we value our abilities in offering unparalleled opportunities for family fun and togetherness. Time with loved ones at Bayside is precious, whether it’s kayaking with the kids, playing golf or tennis with friends, or swaying with neighbors to the sounds of a great outdoor concert. But, let’s be honest. Once in a while you need to take a little time for yourself…

Imagine grabbing a cup of coffee and slipping out the door to greet the morning sun. Hop on your bike and ride to the Point to discover a new hobby or ignite an undiscovered passion. Start your day by sharing your personal story in creative writing, enhancing your wellness with a healthy cooking class, or learning to arrange flowers beautifully. Spend a quiet afternoon learning unique local history or wind down another beautiful day in Fenwick Island with a wine tasting by the bay.

As an innovative year-round program, Bayside Institute enriches lives by giving our members the gift of meaningful “me” time. Learn new skills, explore new subjects, embrace hobbies, and share wisdom – in any number of fascinating interest areas. This is about you. “Me” time is priceless.
