Rated the Best Santa Monica Beach Camp for the Past 25 Years

Join us for our 25th summer at Santa Monica’s premier beach camp for ages 4.5 to 14

Over 36,000 kids have been enjoying our great camps for 25 years. Why? Because we have incredible programs geared to fun, friendship, and personal growth all with caring counselors in the most beautiful beach location available.

Here are some of the great things about FBS:

  • Flexible, week-by-week scheduling. We don’t lock parents into a set schedule of weeks, you pick the # of camp weeks when you want, whether it’s 1 week or 11. Add as many as you want whenever you want!
  • We are recognized as the “Safest Beach Camp” for the past 25 years and our safety record is 100%.
  • We offer over 200 different activities, making every day different and appealing to kids ages 4.5 to 14 of all levels of ocean experience, skills, and interests.
  • We let our campers choose what they want to do, so they always have chance to find something they love—whether for the afternoon or for life.

Don’t let another summer pass by without providing this wonderful opportunity for your kids! Sign Up Today!

Hassle-Free Enrollment. You Pick the Weeks!

Signing up for camp can be stressful. Fitness by the Sea takes the stress away. You can schedule the weeks of camp YOUR way; pick just the weeks you want, and then if you run into a snag, you can change it up, for No additional cost!

Plus, there is no minimum required. Busy schedule? Sign up for just a week. Then, if you find some extra time in your schedule—and if you kid begs you for more weeks—you can add as your schedule, and budget, permits.


How Much Does FBS Cost?

We want camp to be affordable for as many campers as possible. That’s why we have kept our prices as low as possible for our 25 years. And that’s why we offer weekly rates  as low as $455 per week (depending on how many weeks you purchase)

This price includes all camp activities, supervision, instruction, and program equipment provided by the camp. Enroll your child today to make sure to take advantage of this great offer.

What Camp Location is Best for My Child

We talk a lot about giving kids the freedom of choice in activities—they can move from one activity to another as their mood, curiosity, and energy level drives them. The same goes for our two different camp locations, they are 2 miles apart and offer the same awesome experience, but are different sizes:

  • Our Santa Monica camp (810 Pacific Coast Highway Santa Monica, CA 90403) is the perfect blend in size. The camp is large enough to offer an amazing selection of activities and all the spirit and energy of FBS, but still small enough for those campers who prefer a more nurturing environment. Ages range from 4.5 to 14.
  • Pacific Palisades (Will Rogers State Beach, Tower 14) This camp offers the largest variety of activities and hosts the most campers on a daily basis. Ages range from 4.5 to 14.

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 the activities are age-appropriate and our camp counselors are patient and caring, providing maximum individual attention for your child every step of the way

Open House- Sneak Peek at Fitness by the Sea!

Words, pictures, and videos can only go so far. We love to show families who we are by having them come out and see us in action–and participate too! Join us for our Open House at Will Rogers State Beach, Tower 14, in the Pacific Palisades for a sneak peek.

We’ll have games, food and refreshments, arts and crafts, and some amazing activities in the water and on the sand. It’s a great opportunity for a family day at the beach and to meet our FBS family of counselors, and other kids and adults who are attending the camp.

Safety Is Every Parent’s Main Concern—and Ours Too

The number one concern we hear from parents whenever we talk to them is, “Will my child be safe at your camp?” We understand your concern, and it is our top-of-mind concern too. We have been in operation for 25 years, and our safety record is 100 percent.

Having this distinctive reputation as the “Safest Beach Camp” for the past 25 years means we are carefully watched each day by the LA County Captains and Lifeguards, who observe our program in action to make sure we’re complying with all the LA County Lifeguards safety and quality standards relating to key components of camp operation.

The Power of Choosing Your Own Activities

Fitness by the Sea (FBS) was the first beach camp in Southern California to allow campers to choose their own activities throughout the day.

During each activity period campers are presented with between 5-15 (depending on camp location) different activities to choose from. They are free to participate in as few or as many as they wish and are free to start and stop activities as they desire.

This gives campers control of their day and allows them to customize their camp experience to suit their tastes. As campers move between activities, our directors shift staff to maintain our ratios and ensure camper safety.

By offering campers “The Power of Choice,” they develop self-reliance, confidence, and leadership abilities as they actively explore the FBS world.

Counselors Who Create Lifelong Memories

At Fitness by the Sea, we believe we are only as good as our staff and counselors. Here are some great things about our team:

  • The average age of our counselors is 23 years old. That means they have the maturity level and experience to deal with kids.
  • Many of our counselors have been here for five, six, or more years. We know children love continuity, so it’s important that they know a favorite counselor is committed for more than just a summer.

When we say we are one big goofy, happy family, we mean it. In fact, many of our staffers were once FBS campers themselves!
