Angelus Mountain Center, Home of Summerkids Camp

Home of Summerkids Camp

The Angelus Mountain Center is the home of Summerkids Camp. Our 56-acre site is conveniently located in Altadena, California, 15 minutes from downtown Los Angeles, at the edge of the Angeles National Forest.

Our safe and secure campground is rich with natural beauty, the property includes a lodge with banquet hall, gorgeous meadows, a stream, trails, a garden and much, much more. It's an ideal location for filming, with easy entrance and exit as well. 

We invite you to explore this website, which we hope will provide important information about our site. If you have more questions, please contact us. We look forward to hearing from you. 

The Angelus Mountain Center is located in Altadena, just a few minutes from Pasadena and the 210 Freeway and well within the “30-mile zone.” 

Our property offers clear horizons and unobstructed views, and a wealth of different kind of locales. Our canyons are rich with oak trees, scrub brush and other native plantings. Most of our structures were built in the 1950s and are vibrant reminders of another era.

We offer ample parking and can accommodate trucks and other vehicles on our site. Restrooms and private changing room facilities are included. 

We would be happy to work with you on your next photo shoot, film or television project. Please contact us to schedule a visit to our site and for more information. And please note that all filming on our site MUST be properly permitted with Film L.A.
