The Kennebunk Beach Improvement Association is a summer recreational and enrichment program for children ages 2 to 17. Now in its 114th 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.

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!

Playground is closed till spring

Due to damage sustained in back-to-back storms Jan. 10 and Jan. 13, 2024, the KBIA playground at Mother’s Beach is closed to the public. We will wait out the traditional winter storm season and in the spring clean up and restore the structures that we can. We have taped off the area, and we appreciate your patience and cooperation by keeping out.
