Welcome to KBIA

KBIA slideshowThe Kennebunk Beach Improvement Association is a summer recreational and enrichment program for children ages 2 to 17. Now in its 110th year, KBIA is located at Mother's Beach and offers more than 50 classes at its picturesque waterfront property, uniquely situated between the beach and the Cove at Lord's Point.

Classes are open to KBIA members, and membership is opento the public. Membership also includes many fun family events, including free-swim sessions offered twice a day for enrolled campers, Wednesday night campfire beach barbecue followed by movie nights, as well as family sailing and kayaking on weekends.

Whether your family has spent summers here for years, or you are checking us out for the first time, we encourage everyone to experience summer here at KBIA — the way summer should be!


Join us for our Virtual 29th Annual Day at the Beach 5K - weekend of July 11-12
Registration is OPEN for the annual - and now VIRTUAL - KBIA 5K road race. We are asking all registrants to walk/run a 5K on the weekend of July 11th.
In alignment with state officials, local organizations, and compassion for the community at large, we have made the decision to offer this year’s 'Day at the Beach' 5K in a virtual format.  
This year’s race is in memory of Annie McNamara Evans, a longtime supporter of KBIA and former counselor, who recently lost her coruageous battle with cancer. Proceeds from the race will be donated to the Dempsey Center in her name.
The Bauman Family Foundation will be matching our contributions to the Dempsey Center in Annie’s name. The Dempsey Center provides services that can help cancer patients manage the emotional, mental and physical impact of cancer.
We hope you will join us in this great cause. Share your race photo with us by using the hashtags #run4annie and/or #dayatthebeach5k, and we will share on our social media all weekend!
The first 150 participants to register by June 11 will receive a FREE race shirt.

See you at the Beach!
I have the conviction that a few weeks in a
well-organized summer camp may be of more value educationally than a whole year of formal education.
