Summer is slowly winding down, but we are still going strong at KBIA, packing in as much fun as we possibly can in this last week of our 107th season.  Soak up the salt air and sunny skies, the bustling activity of KBIA campus, Mother's beach, and the playground.  Enjoy every minute of these last summer classes, movie nights, teen/tween nights, and visits with summer friends. 
 
We are ending the season with a bang with a swim team meet, family beach bonfire, and you MAY even catch Martin jumping into the pool on Friday.  And we will be holding our final watersports, awards ceremony and BBQ this Saturday.  We hope you'll join us in enjoying these last days of summer at the beach!
 
 
 
Season Finale Fun

  9:00 AM: 5- 6 year olds
  9:30 AM: 7- 8 year olds

At 11 AM, we will begin the awards portion of the day, handing out various KBIA "wedges" and traditional KBIA honors.
 
The awards will be followed by a BBQ of hot dogs, veggie burgers, hamburgers, chips, potato salad, and cake! Cost is $6.
 
At 1:30 PM, we will hold our annual Membership Meeting under the white tent (details below).
 
 
 
Under the white tent

One More Family Bonfire
Friday, August 18
        
With so many requests for another family bonfire, and the tides being in our favor...we thought, why not?!  What better way to cap off the last day of KBIA classes than with a family beach bonfire!  Bring some hot dogs and s'mores and join us at 6 PM on Friday, August 18.  Good toasty food, beach games, and friends make the best summer memories.  No registration required, just let the good times roll.
