Beach Camp Signup, À La Carte Style

Choose 1 week here, another week there—whatever works for you. Hit a snag and realize there’s an issue? No problem. You can switch to another week.

2 Camps to Choose from in Santa Monica and Pacific Palisades

We understand that kids have different needs, depending on their age, interests, personalities, and skill levels. That’s why we offer two different camps both conveniently located for Los Angeles families:

  • Our camp in Santa Monica is for children aged 4.5-14. North of the Pier at 810 Pacific Coast Highway is Parking Lot #8 North. This camp in Los Angeles is great for families.
  • This camp in Los Angeles is perfect for families. Many activities are available to choose from. The camp is small and cozy, which is great for campers who prefer a more caring atmosphere.
  • We offer our Pacific Palisades program for children, ages 4.5-14, at Will Rogers State Beach, Tower 14. This camp offers the widest variety of activities on any given day. Many of our returning campers love this location.
  • Both camps have professionals in charge who prioritize the needs of the campers. The ratio of campers to staff is 6:1, ensuring that each camper receives individual attention.

If after attending a camp, you want to switch to a different one, we can do that too! We want to make sure each camper has a customized experience.

Best Counselors in the Business

At Fitness  by the Sea, we know we are only as good as our counselors. That’s why we hire only the best of the best. Here are some of our hiring practices to make sure your child has the best camp experience possible:

  • We are super-choosy and select counselors for their enthusiasm, dependability, creativity, dedication, and the passion to shape kids’ lives.
  • Our counselors know how to get down on a kid’s level, both literally and figuratively, to engage with them one on one.
  • We select mature counselors who understand the impact they have on every child’s life and they take their role as mentors and examples seriously.

That’s why we like to keep things flexible by offering weekly sign ups and great add-ons like extended care hours (3:30pm-4:30pm and 3:30pm- 5:30pm) that you can add as needed each week. We have great transportation options with bus stops in Westwood, Mar Vista, and Cheviot Hills neighborhoods.
