Welcome to a place where the #1 rule is to "Have Fun."

Summerkids began in 1978, when we sought to create an atmosphere of warmth, creativity and fun for our own children's summer experience. The camp has been owned and operated by the DiMassa family since its inception. You can read about our directors here and our fabulous staff here

Our programs now include Summerkids, for K-6th graders, Summer Challenge, for junior highers, and our latest adventure, SK-PreK, for 3- and 4-year-olds. They are the only summer camps in the greater Pasadena area to be held on a real campground. 

We own and operate the 57-acre property in Altadena, at the edge of the Angeles National Forest, where all of our programs are held. The campsite is a safe and secure location that includes beautiful meadows, a stream, lodge, cabins, pool, garden, sports fields, playgrounds, kitchen and more.

Our goal today is the same as it was when we began: to make summer a special time when your children can grow and play and learn new skills in an environment of natural beauty and caring staff.
