WHO WE ARE
If you're looking for a place to have fun, keep fit, and make new friends become a member of Cedar Heights Community Association in Blind Bay, BC.
Our mission is simple. We provide a social centre in the south Shuswap where neighbours become friends. Our recreational and social programs promote an active lifestyle and we engage in civic and social issues that benefit our community.
Our non-profit association is managed by a dedicated group of volunteers who operate and maintain our 7.5 acre site that includes a two level chalet, The Cedar Centre. We also have a beautiful Par 3 Golf Course, Pickleball and Bocce Courts that are open to the public. Volunteers also manage a number of sports programs and social activities for both members and guests.
HELPFUL INFORMATION FOR EXISTING AND NEW MEMBERS
If you are looking for the dates and times of our upcoming events, the days and times for our regular activities and contact information it's all here. You can also find and print our brochure, membership and sports registration forms. Just click on the green "View Association Documents" below.
Who can join?
If you want to hold office on the Board of Directors or Executive and vote in our General Meetings you must reside in Cedar Heights, Blind Bay, or Sorrento to become an Ordinary Member. However, anyone can become an Associate Member of CHCA. So if you live in Eagle Bay or you are just here for the summer you can join us and still benefit from our member only events and special pricing.
WHY BUY A MEMBERSHIP?
There are lots of monetary benefits to becoming a member such as reduced activity fees and the opportunity to purchase sports memberships. You can join Keep Fit and take advantage of unlimited use of our Golf Course and Pickeball courts for a low fee.
Association members can even rent The Cedar Centre for a party, or our Golf Course, Bocce and Pickleball courts for your family reunion. The longer you have been a member the lower the cost.
Our members also receive a Newsletter via email of scheduled and special events so they don't miss out on any of our fun activities. Some of our activities like our annual Pig Roast are for members only. However, the most important benefit is that sense of belonging that comes from being an active member of our Association.
WHAT DOES IT COST?
An individual adult or youth membership only costs $25, and family memberships are $50 which includes two adults and any children under 18 living in the same household. Memberships are due on January 1st each year and expire at the end of the year. New members joining after August 31st of the current calendar year get a free membership until December 31st with a pre-payment of the next calendar year.
