Our Locations in the Pacific Palisades
Pacific Palisades (Will Rogers State Beach, Tower 14- ‘Big’ Camp) is our most established location offering the largest variety of activities and hosts the most campers on a daily basis. Many of our returning campers love the Palisades location because it offers an unmatched level of energy and an unrivaled amount of choices in any given day. Nestled next to the Lifeguard Headquarters, the camp sits on what feels like a private beach for campers ages 5-14.
Palisades North (Will Rogers State Beach, Tower 5- ‘Little’ Camp) is our smallest camp which is great for first time campers, very young campers, or even campers who are simply looking for a quieter and less stimulating environment. This camp also offers a separate ‘Starfish’ program specifically for our 4-year old campers. So, if you’re looking for a smaller camp that still offers the positive energy, activities, safety, and fun of Fitness by the Sea, then look no further than Palisades North. Campers range in age from 4 – 11. (Please note … all campers must be fully potty trained and able to use the restroom unassisted.)

Fitness by the Sea Giving Back to the Palisades Community
At the core of the work we do at Fitness by the Sea, we have one main priority: making a positive impact on the lives of children everyday. Our owner, Eric Colton, grew up with a single mother who didn’t have the means to send him to camp. It wasn’t until they were gifted a scholarship through a local camp that he got to experience the opportunity of a lifetime. Now, through the platform of his own business, he tries to make that same experience available to families in need across the entire Los Angeles area. Fitness by the Sea has donated over $125,000 of services in the past five years to local schools and over $34,000 of services to low-income families. It is important that the opportunity of a fun and meaningful experience is offered to everyone, regardless of their circumstances. Here are some of the Pacific Palisades schools that have received donations and contributions from Fitness by the Sea:
- Marques Elementary
- Palisades Elementary
- Corpis Christi School
- Calvery Christian
- St. Matthews
- Village School
- Westside Waldorf
- Seven Arrows Elementary
- Methodist Pre-School
