2017 Westwood Summer Camp
Searching for a Beach Summer Camp near Westwood?
If your Westwood family is searching for a nearby summer camp for kids to enjoy hours of fun and sun on the beach, Fitness by the Sea has you covered! FBS has been serving Westwood and its surrounding Los Angeles neighborhoods with convenient, safe, and fun-filled beach summer camps in Santa Monica and Pacific Palisades for the past 17 years! While you may feel like the beach is too far from Westwood, we have you covered with convenient options to get your camper to Fitness by the Sea.
Transportation Available from Westwood!
Although our camps are only a short drive from Westwood, many parents simply don’t have the extra time in their day to transport their children to and from camp. We hear you! That is why we offer transportation service from Westwood through Mission School Transportation, a trusted professional bus service. Our Westwood bus stop is located at Warner Avenue Elementary, at the corner of Warner Avenue and Loring Avenue. This way, all you have to do is be there for drop-off and pick-up, without having to leave your neighborhood (or deal with traffic)!
Safety is Our Main Focus
Fitness by the Sea was started by parents, so we understand that safety is at the forefront of your mind when you are considering sending your child off to day camp. That is why we place a strong emphasis on safety, hiring only professional and well-trained counselors, many of whom are parents and teachers. The average age of our staff is 28, and every individual is CPR-certified. We also keep a strict 6:1 camper to staff ratio at all times to ensure that your child’s safety is always a priority! There are no moments throughout the day that your child is unattended or in a dangerous situation. We diligently train our staff to handle any and all situations that may arise, which is why we’re one of the safest day camps in Southern California!
Three Summer Camps Serving Westwood
Westwood is situated within driving distance of all three of our convenient camp locations. Fitness by the Sea offers two locations in the Pacific Palisades, just six miles from most Westwood neighborhoods. Our beachfront Palisades camps are situated on Will Rogers Beach at Towers 14 and 5.
We lovingly refer to our Tower 14 Camp as our “Big Camp,” as it is our most established camp and offers the widest variety of activities for campers (ages 5-14) to choose from.
Situated nearby, our Tower 5 camp is our smallest location, making it ideal for younger campers or those who want to ease into a more intimate social situation. This location is open to children between the ages of 4 and 11, and is ideal for campers that prefer a quieter and more laid back camp experience. This location also hosts a special “Starfish” program for four-year-old campers. It was designed to work specifically for those at a very young age, because their needs are different than those of older campers.
Our beachfront Santa Monica location is just 7 miles away and is also a convenient option for Westwood families. It is located just north of the Santa Monica Pier at Tower 10. This camp welcomes children between the ages of 5 and 14, and boasts a wide variety of sports, water activities, and arts and crafts!
We Let You Pick the Dates and Times that Work for YOU!
As parents, we understand that signing up for day camps must be flexible and easy. That is why we do not require families to choose full weeks or consecutive dates. Instead, we allow you to pick individual days that work for you with our easy online enrollment system. We also allow families to cancel with 24-hour notice because we know life can be unpredictable! This way, you get to attend camp whenever you feel like it; you’re not locked into dates or required to sign-up for a minimum number of weeks.
We Let our Campers Choose from a Wide Variety of Activities
No matter which Fitness by the Sea location you choose, your child is guaranteed to have a blast participating in our diverse selection of activities and sports! Unlike many area camps, Fitness by the Sea emphasizes giving campers the power to choose which activities they want to participate in. This is a practice that aids in the development of self-confidence and leadership skills, as well as giving campers the opportunity to focus on their passions and the things that make them happy.
Since all of our camps are located on the beautiful beaches of Santa Monica and Pacific Palisades, we offer a wide range of water activities for campers to choose from, including swimming, surfing, boogie boarding, knee boarding, and skimboarding. Other campers just want to splash around in the waves, and we do that as well! We are attentive to our smaller campers as they become familiar with the ocean and it’s workings.
Our camps also offer a variety of team sports for campers to participate in. Team sports provide a wonderful opportunity for
campers to learn about teamwork and good sportsmanship, all while having tons of fun! Some of our team sporting options including basketball, baseball, soccer, volleyball, and kickball. Campers work together to create teams and self-regulate these activities, while being guided by a trained counselor.
If you child loves individual sports, we have them covered with individual sport offerings including gymnastics, boxing, martial arts, yoga, and tai chi. These individual sports are a perfect chance for campers to learn a new skill while also developing a new sense of courage and self-worth as they test out new activities.
We also offer plenty of options for children that want to participate in creative activities! Perfect for fostering imagination and creativity, our camps offer arts & crafts, nature walks, theater games, juggling, face painting, and more!
