Hermosa Beach Camps

How BeachSports Works

BeachSports is designed so you can create your own awesome summer camp experience! Unlike most camps that lock you into a 5-day week or a single activity, BeachSports’ flexible Day Pass system allows Campers the opportunity to experience a variety of beach and ocean activities at our Beach Camp and learn to Skateboard at the Hermosa Skatepark, any day of the week. Attend Skate Camp one day, Beach Camp the next. What your summer looks like is up to you!

Hermosa Camp Options

BEACH CAMP

Starting at Age 4, our Hermosa Beach Camp is designed to be the perfect introduction to the beach for our younger campers. Our curriculum and activities were designed by local elementary school teachers to be inclusive and educational. Campers will be assigned to a Coach each day based on age and will experience a variety of different activities, games, and educational lessons throughout the week that are designed specifically for their age group.

Age Groups

Campers are split into groups based on age at the start of each camp day to ensure camp activities are safe, fun and developmentally appropriate for each of our campers. Our age groups break out as follows:

Minnows | Age 4-6

Dolphins | Age 7-10

Sharks | Age 11-14

Safety

  • Coach Ratio in Water: 1:3
  • Coach Ratio on Beach: 1:6
  • All Coaches: CPR & First-Aid Certified and Background Checked
  • Location: Camp is setup next to the 14th St. LA County Lifeguard station. Coaches and Lifeguards communicate daily about ocean conditions and coaches always defer to lifeguards on safety matters.
  • Rashguards: All campers receive brightly colored SPF rashguards so they are easily identified by coaches and lifeguards.
  • Sunscreen: Sunscreen reapplication breaks are scheduled multiple times throughout the day. Shade tents are provided on the beach for all day campers to escape sun exposure.
