Malibu Summer Camp

Malibu’s Premiere Beach Day Camp Helping Campers Ages 4 to 14 Discover Their Best Selves for 20 Years!

Living in the  area, you’ve probably heard of Fitness by the Sea, the #1 Beach Camp for kids ages 4 to 14 located in the Pacific Palisades and Santa Monica. Perhaps you always wondered what we are all about. Or maybe you know all about us and having been meaning to sign your child up. Well, don’t let another summer pass by without letting your child take advantage of all we have to offer:

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

Day-to-Day Sign up

At Fitness by the Sea, we offer flexible schedules. If you want to sign up for a week and like that continuity, that’s great. If you can’t, no problem. Choose the days you want, then if it doesn’t work you can change your dates as often as you like up to midnight the previous day.

Early Bird Discount Rate

We started this camp 19 years ago because we know how role-modeling, exposure to different activities, and being outdoors in nature can have a tremendous, positive effect on kids for their entire lives. We know it because we experienced it ourselves. That’s why we offer a flexible day-to-day schedule, endless activities, and an Early Bird special rate as low as $67.50 per day for those who enroll by May 1st. Be sure to sign up to take advantage of this discount!

Join Us for Our Next Open House!

We try to give you as much info as we can through our website, but there is nothing like seeing Fitness by the Sea beach day camp in action. Why not join us for an open house at one of our four camp locations? It’s like a free camp day!

Join us on Sunday, April 28th, Will Rogers State Beach, Lifeguard Tower 14 in the Pacific Palisades from 12 pm to 2 pm. We anticipate a lot of participants, so grab free tickets here.

Safety is Our Top Priority

We take the responsibility of keeping your children safe very seriously! So seriously, in fact, that we have a flawless safety record, and have been told by the Chief of L.A. lifeguards that FBS  is the safest beach camp he has ever seen for the past 20 years.

To ensure the safety of our campers, we only employ professional and well-trained staff members. Many of these counselors are parents and teachers, who are very responsible, mature adults interacting with your child in the water and on the sand.

All of our counselors are also CPR trained and certified, and we ensure that they renew their credentials every season. We make sure that our staff is trained to meet the highest standards

Boredom-free Zone! Over 50 Daily Activities to Choose

At Fitness by the Sea kids can try out something and if it’s not for them, they can move on. No pressure; just fun! They can participate in as few or as many activities as they wish and can start and stop activities as they desire. This gives your child control of their day and allows them to customize their camp experience to suit their tastes.

Each day your child will enjoy 4 different camp programs and activities all in the same day. Here is just a sampling of what your child will experience—even in one day!


Small, Medium, or Large Size Camps

We offer three sizes of camps to appeal to a wide range of ages, interests, skill levels, and personalities:

  • Our smallest camp is at Will Rogers State Beach, Lifeguard Tower 5 for children ages 4-11. This camp tends to skew toward first-time campers, younger kids, and kids who prefer a smaller, quieter experience or who don’t like a huge amount of activity and stimulation. (This camp also offers a separate area for our Starfish Program, designed for 4-year-old campers.)
  • Our medium-size camp is in Santa Monica, North of the Pier, Lifeguard Tower 11 for children ages 4-14. This camp is the perfect combination of our largest and smallest camp locations. It’s large enough to offer a wide variety of activities and all the spirit and energy of Fitness by the Sea, but still small enough for those campers who prefer a smaller camp feel. (This location also offers our Starfish Program for 4-year-olds.)
  • Our largest camp is at Will Rogers State Beach, Lifeguard Tower 14 for children ages 5-14. Because it has the biggest number of campers, we can offer the largest variety of activities on any given day. Many of our returning campers love this location so they can learn a new skill each day.

How Do We Find Such Great Counselors?

We hear from many parents all the time asking where we find such amazing counselors. We hand-select our counselors for experience with kids of different ages, enthusiasm, ability to be role models and mentors, creativity, and responsibility. Our counselors understand they are creating memories for the kids filled with positivity and triumph–and they are creating lifelong memories for themselves too!

That’s why we have many counselors who have worked for five, six, or more summers. They aren’t just picking up a paycheck or adding a bullet point to their resumés. They know what they do is important in each and every camper’s heart.
