Extend the gift of “summer”

KBIA is truely a unique experience, offering children the opportunity to pick and choose classes, tailoring to their specific interests.  We are proud to run such an extensive variety of programs year after year – from surfing, sailing, kayaking, to reading, drama, pottery, to swim team, golfing, tennis, woodworking…and so much more…there is something for everyone.  We owe these fantastic summers at KBIA to the generosity of members and donors. 
Please help us keep the spirit of summer alive for children who are unable to attend KBIA without assistance. The impact of a summer spent swimming, sailing, and just “being a kid” has a lasting impression. All donations — large, small and/or online are greatly appreciated.
Membership Directory due out this fall
Our annual Membership Directory, due out in late September, makes it easy to stay in touch with your KBIA friends and family throughout the year. Our annual publication lists our trophy winners as well as the 2019 list of KBIA staff and families’ names, addresses, e-mails and phone numbers. In order for it to be as accurate as possible, please make sure the office has your latest contact information. And if you haven’t joined yet for 2019, you have until September 1st!
