KBIA ready for another summer of recreation

Registration is open for the 104th season at the Kennebunk Beach Improvement Association. KBIA will offer eight weeks of summer recreational and enrichment classes for ages 3 to 17, starting June 23.

KBIA will waive the membership fee for all Week 1 participants (June 23-27) as a way for first-time families to try out KBIA with no commitment.

The nonprofit summer camp offer swimming, sailing, surfing, standup paddleboarding, kayaking, diving, golf, tennis, drama, arts and crafts, and woodworking, among its 50-plus course offerings. Other popular options include counselor-in-training classes, marine biology, reading, pottery and sculpture and beach games.

In 2014, KBIA will offer 14 scholarships to local children. In its final year of KBIA’s 100th Anniversary Capital Campaign, its board of directors is focusing on growing scholarships. Now through September, KBIA supporters will match every $2 given toward scholarships with a $1 donation. For information on either opportunity, contact Executive Director Martin Lodish at mlodish@kbia.net.

All classes are open to KBIA members, and membership is open to the public. Campers register by the week, and classes are offered a la carte or as a bundle for morning and/or afternoon sessions. Family memberships include twice-daily open swim for children, weekly beach bonfire and barbecues followed by movie night, open sail/kayaks on most weekends, and a Seaside Celebration for adults.
