Ballona Beach Summer Day Camp has put together a long list of daily camp activities to keep minds challenged and bodies fit. Our sessions and weeks are themed to ensure that campers are not doing the same activities over and over, which can make a camp experience boring. At Ballona Beach no two days are the same, and each day features an activity that is exclusive to our camp. Below are descriptions of some of the activities we offer.

    6 Years and counting!!! My two girls are now 14 and 12 and Ballona Beach is our extended family. Can i just say that my oldest daughter was in a play at a Santa Monica playhouse and the director and three of the counselors showed up and brought her flowers?? This is why this camp is so incredibly awesome. When they say its not just a beach camp they mean it. My girls learned to windsurf, sail and paddle board and i am so proud of the girls they have grown in too and Ballona Beach camp helped them come out of their shell. The only camp we do every single year. Ballona is home.

    Best camp ever! I can drop my son of at 8am so I'm on time for work and he has a blast until I pick him up at 5pm. The few times i was late the staff was so chill, truly a beach environment.

    I love this camp!! We heard horror stories about beach camps but a friend of my daughters parents referred us to Ballona and it was the best experience ever. We have a 6 year old boy and a 9 year old girl and we were really worried about the little one because he is not the best swimmer and he had no friends his age. The staff is amazing!!! They made Jake feel so comfortable and he just jumped right in to the camp. They put my son in a group of kids that had a similar skill level in the water and they had other things besides just the beach for him to do. I don't think im an over protective parent but the director Mike made me feel so comfortable and he even gave me his personal number so i can check up on Jake if i felt the need. It took every ounce of my power not to call and at the end of the day when i drove up and saw how happy both Jake and Sarah were, I knew this was the place for us. The activities, the staff, the professionalism makes this camp our new favorite summer spot.
