Best Beach Camp for Palisades Kids Ages 4 to 14 for the Past 23 Years!

There is a reason Pacific Palisades families have made Fitness by the Sea Beach Camp their camp of choice for 24 years. Here are just a few:

100% safety record. In fact, Fitness by the Sea has been recognized as the safest beach camp for the past 24 years.

Due to Covid and the LA County Health Department guidelines, we are offering this summer convenient, flexible, week-by-week scheduling. Come for 1 week or 11!

Best-in-class kind, caring, and mature counselors. Our well-trained counselors are silly, goofy, but level-headed too! Average age is 24 years old.

Up to 200 different beach activities, so each day is a completely different experience. At any given time, your child can be playing team sports, participating in camp performances, learning specialized skills, or having fun in the water.

All in the most beautiful beach environment anywhere! Don’t miss out! Sign up today!

Don’t like Planning Things Down to the Second? Our Camp is for you!

At most camps, you need to conform to a strict schedule months in advance. We experienced this ourselves with our kids. That’s why we were the first camp in the Palisades area to offer week-by-week enrollment. That means YOU pick your schedule, not us. Plus you can pick as many weeks as you want, from 1 to 11! We work with you to make sure your registration experience is as stress-free as possible. If something comes up, you can totally switch your child’s week—as late as 5:00pm (Pacific Time) Friday prior to the scheduled camp week with no change fee! Unbelievable!

Affordable Cost for Camp

We understand camp can be expensive. Because of this, we have kept the price reasonably affordable since we started 24 years ago. That’s why we offer our weekly rates are as low as $432 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

Fitness by the Sea has been recognized as the safest beachside camp in the Los Angeles area for the past 24 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.

Which Camp Should You Choose?

In most cases, the closest location will be your best choice. However, our 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 Will Rogers State Beach (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 in Santa Monica (north of the Pier at Parking Lot #8 North), this camp is the perfect combination of our largest and smallest camp locations for kids who might want a fuller camp experience but with a smaller group setting. Campers range in age from 4 – 14.

Our Clownfish Program for our 4-year old campers is offered at both our Pacific Palisades and Santa Monica camp locations. Those programs are situated directly adjacent to our main camps and offer a smaller, more intimate environment for our youngest campers.

All camps offer a safe, invigorating, and stimulating camp experience. And best of all, no prior ocean experience is necessary because 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.

The Average Age of Our Staff Is 24

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.

Guaranteed Fun!

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 June 1 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.)
