The 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.

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!
