Full-Membership History & Requirements

Mr. Howard C. Heinz began Covode House and later Sarah Heinz House over one hundred eighteen (118) years ago. The full membership requirement at that time was to attend weekly “Club” (Life Skills and Social Education activities) Program and “Gym/Swim” (Healthy Choices Program activities (the two “Core Programs”) on a regular basis. This requirement remains in effect today but slightly modified with some additional choices.  Keep in mind that full membership is a privilege, and this requirement of strong attendance and active full membership is designed for the overall development and wholesome character in our full members.

Customize Your Sarah Heinz House Experience

We want to make sure you are aware of all the SHH programs available to the member. For most of Sarah Heinz House’s history, all members were required to weekly attend our two traditional programs with their peers, Club and Gym, which are split by age division and gender. In addition to Club and Gym, Sarah Heinz House offers many additional “elective” programs for specific interests ranging from Robotics to Dance to Martial Arts to Media Lab. While we encourage you to consider signing your member up for these electives as add-ons in addition to the traditional programs of Club and Gym, we realize that many families would like to customize their SHH experience by substituting an elective for a traditional program. You are welcome to do so for ONE of your traditional programs: Club or Gym. We will still require your member to maintain at least 50% attendance in their substituted elective in order to remain eligible for membership. All available programs for your member, per the links below, along with their prices:
