Whether you're new to the area or have been here a while, as a member you can choose from many diverse programs and activities that can be recreational, educational, social, cultural, fitness-oriented, fun, dinners, groups, events, and more. Come experience all that Cape Cod has to offer with friendly, welcoming, fun-loving, Club members.

Become a member

Come Join Us!

The Chatham-Harwich Newcomers Club currently has over 700 members. To be a member, you must be a part-time or full-time resident of Chatham or Harwich. You do not have to be a "newcomer" to Chatham or Harwich. Many of our members have lived here many years. The cost for an individual yearly membership is $25 and runs from September 1 through August 31. There is no family or group membership. Each person must join individually.

Member input is a key factor why the CHNC has been so rewarding and so successful. We have bimonthly general member meetings to encourage as much input from members as possible. Here's the basic member application process:

  • When an application is received, it's reviewed internally to validate that the applicant is a Chatham or Harwich resident
  • Once residency is confirmed, the application is then approved
  • An email and invoice are sent to the applicant
  • When the invoice is paid, an official email is sent out welcoming them to the Club
