#1 Beach Camp for Hancock Park Kids, Ages 4 to 14

Fitness by the Sea, located in Santa Monica and the Pacific Palisades, has been a beach camp tradition for Hancock Park families for 24 years. Why? Because we offer a 100% safety record, week-by-week scheduling, and over 200 safe and exciting beach activities for kids ages 4 to 14.

We give kids the power to choose which activities to participate in—no set schedule of activities. Surfing, boogie boarding, and swimming are naturally very popular, but we also offer gymnastics, arts and crafts, martial arts, dance, and more—all in an encouraging, positive environment—making every day at camp unique.

And NO PRIOR ocean experience is required, non-swimmers are welcome! Because all the activities are age-appropriate and our camp counselors are patient and caring, FBS provides maximum individual attention for your child every step of the way.

Customizable, Week-by-Week Sign Up

Since we are parents with our own kids and know how busy parents and kids are these days, we decided early on to offer week-to-week signups. What that means is that you have a season of 11 weeks to choose from with NO minimum number of weeks. Sign up for one week. If your child comes home and wants more—and we think they will!—add another week. It’s totally up to you!

Early Bird Discount- Don’t Miss Out!

Sign up by to get our Early Bird Discount Rate as low as $432 per week. If you need to switch or add weeks, add campers, or change to another of our camp locations, we’ll work with you to ensure you and your child gets as much out of our camp as you can.

Fun at the Beach Means SAFETY too!

Parents who are sending their children to any camp are concerned about the safety. Add an ocean into the mix and their concern is even higher. “Can I really trust the camp to watch my child?” they think. Rest assured, your child is in good hands.

Summer of 2023 will be our 24th year in business and we have a 100 percent safety record. In fact, Fitness by the Sea is recognized as the safest beach camp in the Los Angeles area for the past 23 years. We are proud of this distinction and intend to keep it that way.

Freedom to Choose your own Activities

At Fitness by the Sea, children are immersed in an environment that allows them to soar with a perfect blend of 200 safe and exciting water and sand activities ranging from swimming to arts and crafts to baseball and everything in between.

With so many activities, how does a child know what to choose? We understand kids. Especially younger kids, we want them to try something they might not have considered. That’s why we have staff we call “roamers” whose job it is to match up kids with something they like. If they try it and don’t like it, they are directed to another activity. We call that “Freedom of Choice,” and we love working with kids’ unlimited energy, enthusiasm, flexibility, and imaginations.

They are certain to find something they love, whether for a half hour, for the day, or something they want to pursue for the rest of their lives

How to Select The Best Camp Location for Your Child

In most cases, the closest location will be your best choice since both camps offer our unique variety of activities, safety, and the high energy and spirit. But different camp locations do range in size and one may fit your family better than another:

Pacific Palisades (Will Rogers Beach, Tower 14) is our most established location, offering the largest variety of activities and an unmatched level of energy and spirit. Campers range in age from 4 – 14.

Santa Monica (North of Pier, Parking Lot #8 North) is the perfect medium size for kids who want a bit smaller camp, but still want plenty of activities to choose from. Campers range in age from 4 – 14.

Our Clownfish program is offered at both camp locations and provides programming specifically tailored to our youngest, 4-year old, campers.

Long-lasting bonds with our Counselors

Many parents remark to us how a child adores a particular counselor. We love hearing that! Our counselors understand how they are making a big impact in a child’s life. They want each day to be filled with fun and triumphs large and small. They understand what it’s like to be a kid and they know how play helps develop lifelong skills. That’s why we are super-selective choosing our amazing counselors. We have over 1,000 applicants each year and only pick the cream of the crop. We want every child to have the best camp experience possible.
