Best Hancock Park Summer Camp for 2019

#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 20 years. Why? Because we offer a 100% safety record, day-by-day 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.

Don’t miss out! Sign up today!

  • Convenient bus stop in Hancock Park at Third Street Elementary
  • Reasonable prices. Just $10 one way or $18 round-trip per day.
  • Activities and games provided by counselors on the bus.
  • Trained, professional drivers to ensure safe, reliable transport equipped with seat belts

Customizable, Day-to-Day 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 day-to-day signups. What that means is that you have a season of 60 camp days to choose from with NO minimum number of days. Sign up for one day. If your child comes home and wants more—and we think they will!—add another day. It’s totally up to you!

Early Bird Discount- Don’t Miss Out!

Sign up by May 1 to get our Early Bird Discount Rate as low as $67.50 per day. If you need to switch or add days, add campers, or change to another camp of our three locations, we’ll work with you to ensure you and your child gets as much out of our camp as you can.

Open House- Sneak Peek!

Get a sneak peek at our awesome camp experience at our open house at our Pacific Palisades location on April 28th from 12pm-2pm. It’s a great way to check us out and, if you’ve already enrolled, a great way for your child to get to know us ahead of time and get ramped up for the summer!

Bring the whole family and your friends for activities, games, arts and crafts, music, and more. Get to know our owners, staff, and counselors. We can’t wait to meet you and your kids! Grab a ticket here. Hope to see you there!

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 2019 will be our 20th year in business and we have a 100 percent safety record. In fact, the Chief of LA Lifeguards has said that Fitness by the Sea is the safest camp he has ever seen for the past 20 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 all four 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 – “Big” Camp) is our most established location, offering the largest variety of activities and an unmatched level of energy and spirit. Campers range in age from 5 – 14.

Palisades North (Will Rogers Beach, Tower 5 – “Little” Camp) is our smallest camp, which is great for first-time campers, very young campers, or campers who just prefer a quieter, less stimulating environment. Campers range in age from 4 – 11. (Our Starfish Program for four-year-olds is offered here.)

Santa Monica (North of Pier, Tower 11) is the perfect combination of our largest and smallest camp locations. Campers range in age from 4 – 14. (Our Starfish Program for 4-year-olds is offered here as well.)

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.
