Fitness by the Sea was founded in 2000 by Eric and Billie Colton. They have been successfully providing summer camp services to the Pacific Palisades and Santa Monica communities ever since.

Open to children ages 4-14, FBS is an exciting place to spend the summer, and it provides the opportunity for campers to grow and explore in a nurturing environment.

  • We offer over 200 different 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.
  • We structure our camp around giving the campers the opportunity to choose what they want to do because we feel that helps them grow and develop new life skills.
  • You’ll love our flexible week-by-week sign up this summer due to Covid and LA County Public Health guidelines.
  • Best of all we have a 100 percent safety record and recognized as the “Safest Beach Camp”  in the Los Angeles area for the past 23 years.

Come join all the spirit, encouragement, and positivity that Fitness by the Sea has been known for the past 23 years. Sign up today!

Camp registration your way, not ours

When you sign up for camp, you’ll be happy to know you can choose your own camp schedule without conforming to preset sessions like other camps require. Arrange your child’s enrollment according to any combination of weeks you want. Pick a week here or there, even switch your schedule around as much as you need if something comes up later. Here at Fitness by the Sea, you decide which weeks you want to come to camp, not us!

Early Bird Discount – 10% Off

We started this camp 23 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 week-to-week schedule, endless activities, and an Early Bird special rate as low as $405 per week. Be sure to sign up to take advantage of this discount

Come to our Open House

We’ve done our best to tell you how much fun your child will have at Fitness by the Sea Beach Camp this summer, but we can only show so much on the website. Why not learn more at our next Open House. Spend a little time with us at the beach to meet our staff, play games, and see how a typical day at camp operates during the summer.

Grab a ticket here. Hope to see you there!

The ONLY Summer Beach Day Camp recognized as the “Safest Beach Camp” for Topanga Kids for the past 23 years

Fitness by the Sea Beach Camp is the only beach camp for Topanga kids to have achieved this recognition for the past 23 years. That means our program has been officially recognized as setting the standard among other local beach camps for safety, credibility, quality, and fun.

As the safest beach camp, you get peace of mind knowing our operation is monitored on an ongoing basis by the LA County Captains and Lifeguards to ensure we meet or exceed The Department of Beaches and Harbors best-practice standards relative to the key aspects of operating an above-board camp.

50 Different Choices of Activities each Day!

Many exciting features set Fitness by the Sea apart from other beach camps. One of the primary ones is the wide variety of aquatic and sand activities campers experience. Our program is anything but routine, as campers enjoy over 50 different choices of activities each day.

Every day we offer different water activities, team sports, individual sports, creative activities, and in the shade activities. With such a diverse set of new and exciting activities to experience all summer, your child will look forward to coming to camp each day and never get bored.

2 Different Camps to Choose from

At Fitness by the Sea, we promote self-esteem and celebrating what makes your child unique. With this in mind, we offer two sizes of camps, each offering the same best-in-class counselors, fantastic activities, and our trademark positive, encouraging spirit and energy.

  • Our Pacific Palisades camp at Will Rogers State Beach, Tower 14 offers our widest ranges of activities and an unmatched level of high-energy and spirit. We welcome kids 4 to 14
  • Our Santa Monica camp is the perfect size, as it offers the best of both worlds: a large amount of activities and a smaller feel for campers that prefer a more nurturing camp experience. We welcome kids 4 to 14.
  • We welcome 4-year-olds into our Clownfish program at our Pacific Palisades and Santa Monica camps. These groups, led by specially trained counselors, focus on the physical and emotional needs of these young campers. Activities are specifically designed to encourage creativity, self-confidence, and teamwork.

Don’t forget, you can always switch your child to another camp if another offers a better fit. You can’t go wrong!

Counselors Who Create Lifelong Memories

We are super-picky about selecting the absolute best of the best counselors. We know it’s the counselors who interact and bond with the kids the most. Here are some ways we guarantee our counselors stand out:

  • Our counselors do not socialize with one another during camp activities. This way we can ensure they are tuned into each child and every child’s needs.
  • Our counselors understand that they are creating lifelong memories and that they are role models and mentors for the kids at camp.

After a day at camp, we know your child will come home and tell you about all our fantastic activities, but we also know your child will be telling you about how great the counselors are  too!

Fun and Fitness Guaranteed

We want every child to have the best time of their lives at our camp. And for 23 years, we’ve had thousands of kids come home each day will a big smile full of stories about the great time they had. But because we are so confident, we can back up our promise by offering a guarantee. If you or your child is not satisfied with a camp day, we will switch the child to another camp at any time during the camp season. We think that’s pretty reasonable and we’ll work with you to ensure you and your child gets as much out of our camp as you can.
