Sign up for a 2017 KBIA Membership today! The 2017 Membership Form can be found on our website here and there will also be forms within the 2017 Registration Guide being mailed to you.  Please submit via email at [email protected] or fax to 207-510-8058.
All are welcome to join!  It is the continuous generosity of KBIA members and friends that enable us to provide children the same safe, fun, beautiful, and nurturing learning environment that has been provided to five generations of children, while allowing us the opportunity to grow and improve our programs.
Annual membership fees help support KBIA’s programs. We’re proud to be a place that lets children be children and lets them explore the vast and rugged beauty of the Coast of Maine in summer, while building knowledge, leadership, and respect for themselves, others and their world. We’re particularly proud of the scholarships we offer to children in the Kennebunk area who might otherwise not be able to take advantage of our KBIA enrichment programs, and of our many other community endeavors.
Membership fees remain a crucial element for us to achieve operational breakeven, to allow us to provide local scholarships, and to keep the cost of classes down. 
All of us at KBIA thank you for your continued backing and generous contributions. We would not be able to provide exemplary programming and quality instruction without your generosity.
