About the Kittery Community Center


A healthy, vibrant community for all ages and interests


To provide multi-generational programs and services contributing to personal wellbeing and the quality of community life

The KCC is a destination where recreational activities and the arts are blended together. We know how important it is to maintain an active lifestyle for a healthy and happy life, which is why the KCC hosts a multitude of programs, classes, and events for people of all ages and the enrichment of their lives.

Here, fitness programs, athletic opportunities, arts and crafts classes, and various cultural activities are made accessible, and we’re dedicated to bringing in more of what the community asks for.

In addition to our fitness amenities, STAR Theatre, and our famous pickle ball league, the center has multiple office and classroom spaces for nonprofits and civic groups to use as meeting space, and our function rooms are available for wedding receptions and parties. Not to mention our sought-after preschool and outdoors programs for kids!

We’re proud to be a model community center for towns aiming to create a similar entity where residents and non-residents can come together and exercise, see professional-quality theater performances, and observe great pieces of art, among many other uses.

It’s the perfect place for you and the whole family to learn and participate in new activities and enjoy the company of those around you, our community.
