Fitness by the Sea allows you to enroll your camper for the individual days you prefer, instead of requiring enrollment on a weekly basis. Choose the days that work best for your family with our flexible schedule!
Fitness by the Sea offers a unique day camp experience for children between 5 and 14 years old. We offer a HUGE variety of activities (80+) every day at our four convenient locations in Santa Monica and Pacific Palisades.
Founded in 2000, FBS was specifically designed to nurture friendship, fun, and personal growth. Over the years, we have refined a formula for success that combines …
- A spirited and experienced staff
- Fun, exciting, and creative activities
- An encouraging environment where kids prosper
Children of all ages discover their interests and passions among our wide range of activities including creative activities, water activities, individual sports, team sports, and theme days. Campers get to choose their own activities at Fitness by the Sea. They can choose to go swimming, play soccer, paint a picture, make sand castles, or just hang out on their beach with their friends.
FBS Summer Camp Puts Safety First
Safety is our top priority at all times. We ensure that campers are safe in the water, safe in the sun, and safe on the beach. We have devoted an entire page of this website to explaining our vast safety measures.
You can rest assured that your child will be safe at Fitness by the Sea. But you don’t have to take our word for it … the Chief of LA County Lifeguards called FBS “the safest beach I camp ever seen.”
Here’s just some of our safety measures:
- All staff are CPR and First Aid Certified
- 6:1 Camper to Staff Ratio
- Water Safety – Counselors are placed directly in the water with the campers while on-staff lifeguards watch from the beach. Professional Lifeguards are also on duty directly adjacent to our camp.
- Staff Chaperoned Bathroom Visits
- Sunscreen is liberally applied with staff assistance throughout the day
- Hydration – Campers are regularly encouraged to drink water throughout the day
- Brightly Colored Camp Uniforms – All campers must wear our FBS rash guard for easy identification by our staff and Professional Lifeguards.
FBS Staff Members Are Trained & Experienced
The average age of staff members at Fitness by the Sea is 28 and many of our staff members are parents and teachers. Our experienced staff is something you won’t find in another summer camp in Southern California.
A camper to staff ratio of 6 to 1 is strictly maintained at all times and staff members actively participate in all activities.. During surfing activities, the ratio drops to 3 to 1 to make sure our campers are surrounded by staff members while surfing.
Staff members at Fitness by the Sea go through rigorous training before camp begins. They are trained in safety, child development, conflict resolution, leadership, and more.
Summer Camp Starts Soon … Enroll Now!

You can register your child for any days you wish over the course of the entire summer – non-consecutive days are okay! If you choose to use transportation, there is a five day minimum enrollment. If not, you can register your child for any days you wish, with no minimum days or weeks. When you register, you’ll be required to choose your attendance schedule for the summer. But you have the option, at no additional cost, to change your dates (with 24 hour advance notice) as needed.
