Bellingham Senior Activity Center

The Bellingham Senior Activity Center was established in 1961. We directly operate a 1,600+ member senior center in Bellingham. We coordinate wellness programs for seniors including flu shot clinics, dental care, strength and balance classes for fall prevention, strength training classes, Tai Chi, dancing, and walking and hiking groups. In addition to a variety of other classes.

Whether you’re interested in art, health & wellness, computer skills, current events, dancing or just playing cards with friends, you’ll find a wealth of fun-filled activities to educate, stimulate and entertain you at the Center.

About our logo: The ‘tree of life’ design brings together a number of ideas: circle of life, reaching out, growing and changing with the stages of life. The circles are representative of fellowship, gathering friends and family together. At the Bellingham Senior Activity Center we believe that every stage of life offers opportunities for growth, discovery and fellowship and we offer a wide array of activities to challenge, delight and inspire.

Our Mission is to offer a wide range of classes, activities and services for people over 50 years of age and over to encourage emotional, mental and physical wellness for a healthy, active and independent lifestyle.
