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 29th Annual Day at the Beach 5K - Sunday, July 12
Registration is OPEN for the annual KBIA 1K Kids Run and 5K road race. Come run with us on a USATF certified course that begins and ends at beautiful Kennebunk Beach. The course winds through a shaded, beachside neighborhood and finishes alongside the Atlantic. Post-race snacks and beverages are provided. Fun for the whole family!
The first 150 participants 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.
