Which Camp Should You Choose?
In most cases, the closest location will be your best choice. However, different camp locations do range in size, age, and feel, and one may fit your family better than another:
Pacific Palisades Camp: Ages 4 to 14.
Located at 15700 Pacific Coast Highway, Lifeguard Tower 14, Pacific Palisades, CA 90272, this camp offers the largest choices of activities on any given day and an unmatched level of energy and spirit.
Santa Monica Camp: Ages 4 to 14.
Located at 810 Pacific Coast Highway, Lifeguard Tower 8, Santa Monica, CA 90403, this camp is perfect for kids who might want a fuller camp experience but with a smaller group setting. Campers range in age from 4 to 14.
If your child is 4-years-old, our Clownfish program, offered at both our Santa Monica and Pacific Palisades camps. They are led by dedicated professionals who focus on the needs of our youngest campers providing a lower 5:1 camper to staff ratio. Our Clownfish programs offer a smaller, nurturing environment specifically tailored to pre-school age children. These programs are offered directly adjacent to each of our main camp sites.
And remember, all of our camps cater to first-time campers and kids new to the ocean. No Prior ocean experience is required. Non-swimmers are welcome! All of the activities are instructional and our camp counselors will teach your child how to do everything from the ground up at a comfortable pace.
Affordable Cost for Camp
We understand camp can be expensive. Because of this, we have kept the price reasonably affordable since we started over 23 years ago. That’s why we offer weekly rates as low as $405 per week.
After all, we started this business because we remember how camp changed our lives in such a positive way that we dedicated our lives to making sure as many kids as possible have that same opportunity. And we offer a mind-blowing amount of activities to make sure you are getting your money’s worth.

Safety is Extremely Important
Since Fitness by the Sea summer camp has been termed the safest beachside camp for the past 23 years, you never need to worry about your child’s safety and this is why:
- All staff members are CPR and First-aid Certified
- For every 6 kids there is 1 staff member.
- Water Safety Measures – Counselors are placed directly in the water with the campers while on-staff lifeguards keep an eye from the shore line. And in close proximity you will find professional LA County Lifeguards patrolling the beach front.
- Children don’t go to the bathroom alone, there is always a staff member present.
- The staff sees that sun screen is applied several times throughout the day.
We Give Campers the Freedom to Choose Their Own Activities.
At FBS campers are allowed to choose their own activities and groups each day (with the exception of the 4-year-old campers). This helps develop independence and decision-making skills and ensures each child a unique and customized camp experience.
Every day we offer over 50 different water activities, team sports, individual sports, creative activities and in the shade activities while our staff actively participates in every activity to serve as positive role models in teamwork, leadership, creativity, sportsmanship, and fun!
And we do all this because we know that when these activities are wrapped in a culture of fun and acceptance that lays a foundation for building extraordinary kids.
The Average Age of Our Staff Is 26
We strive to hire staff members who have previously worked with kids and have a passion for teaching and mentoring. With an older staff, which includes many teachers and parents just like you, we can truly focus on your child’s development and well-being.
We know you are giving us an enormous responsibility when signing up for camp. We want you to have peace of mind that not only is your child safe, but they are being cared for on a one-on-one level that can only be provided by a mature staff with lots of experience working with kids of different ages in group settings.
At Fitness by the Sea, we are known for our flexibility. We want every child to have their best camp day ever. This flexibility extends to our enrollment process. If you enroll and something comes up, you have to May 16 to cancel and receive a 100 percent refund. If camp has already started and you or your child is not completely satisfied, we will work with to switch to another day or to another camp. (We have two camp sizes, each offering a unique camp experience, so you’re sure to find the perfect fit.)
With so many programs to choose from, we know choosing a summer camp isn’t easy. We believe our camp is the best out there, but if you have any concerns, please visit our FAQs. It has lots of information, and because we’ve been doing this for over 23 years, we know about a lot of the concerns parents have.
