Guidelines to becoming a member
Forest Hills Club, Inc. is a cooperative nonprofit corporation. The Club is self-governing with a board of directors elected by its Annual Members, who jointly share in the financial responsibilities of the Club. Operating expenses are apportioned equally among the membership through our annual membership dues and annual capital improvement assessments. In addition, Annual Members are urged to contribute personal services to the Club to the best of their abilities in order to keep costs low. There are many ways to contribute effort, ranging from infrastructure repair and maintenance tasks to gardening to keeping the guest cabins clean to doing our plastics recycling.
Some benefits of annual membership include:
- Unlimited access to Club grounds, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
- Complimentary membership in AANR.
- Voting rights during the spring and fall General Assemblies for the election of board members and other significant matters that may arise.
- Eligibility to hold office on the Board of Directors.
- The right to purchase a lifetime site license and own a campground site for a camper.
- 10% discount on the Club's camping fees.
Annual Membership Fees: Single $795.00 • Couple/Family $840.00
A Couple/Family membership includes a couple and their minor children and minor grandchildren.
Annual dues become payable upon being approved for membership and are subsequently billed annually on the first day of the month of the membership anniversary.
A Membership Benefit: Lifetime Site Licenses
Annual members may purchase a lifetime campsite license (see below for fee), and that site license entitles them to occupy a specified lot. A site license can be passed by will if the beneficiary is a Club member or becomes a member. A member may only hold a single site license. A site license can also be sold to another member. A site license held by the Club can be purchased from the Club at the going rate; site licenses for sale by members will vary in price depending upon the improvements made to their lot.
Site license transfers incur a fee (see below), payable to the Club, for site license exchanges between members or between the member and Club for Club-owed lots.
Important Notice – Lifetime Site Licenses are granted only upon approval of the Board. Site licenses (and annual memberships) are subject to other terms and conditions which can be found in our Constitution and Members' Guidebook (our Bylaws), available in the Member's Section of this website or upon request at the Club office. This information on this page is intended solely to provide a brief overview of the costs associated with annual memberships and if the information here conflicts with the Bylaws, then those documents take precedence.
Site License Annual Assessment: $350.00
Charged to Site License holders, this fee is used to help defray the Club's property taxes, insurance premiums, and water and electrical system maintenance costs attributable to the site license holder's lot. It is billed on January 1 of each year to site license holders.
Site license purchase cost: $600.00 (minimum)
This is the minimum cost for purchasing a site license for a Club-owned lot. The actual cost will be based on an on-site valuation by the Club Board. The site-license transfer fee is not included.
Site license transfer fee: $150.00
Payable to the Club, this is for transfers of site licenses between a member and the Club or another member.
Lot lease fees: Annual: $560.00 • Monthly: $115.00
Annual members can also lease certain designated campsites on an annual or monthly basis. The annual lease fee is due at the beginning of April of each year. The annual lease also entitles the member to store a camper/tent on the site for the year.
Electricity Usage Charge
All Leased sights have metered electrical service and the site license holder or Lot lessor is responsible for all electrical charges at rates established by the Club.
