In our last week at KBIA, we are soaking up every second of our 108th summer doing what we love best - providing recreational and enrichment activities and family fun events. We are winding down the season with our final Wednesday night extended campfire beach BBQ, August Watersports, Awards, & BBQ, annual Membership Meeting, and don't forget twice daily free swims, movie nights, and teen & tween nights. You MAY even catch Martin jumping into the pool on Friday. We hope you'll join us in enjoying these last days of summer at the beach!
