Clear Creek Outdoor Education Center – La Cañada Flintridge CACamp entrance sign
The Clear Creek Outdoor Education Center in La Cañada Flintridge, CA, is based at former Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) Camp Angeles Crest F-133, which was established in May 1933 for the development of Angeles National Forest.
One of the projects undertaken by the CCC men stationed here was the construction of a road between 1933 and 1934; its location is unclear.
Today, the Clear Creek Outdoor Education Center is a Los Angeles Unified School District science education facility and camp.

I went to Camp Clear Creek as a kid with my school back in the early 90s. It was an amazing experience. I was scared and shy around new people but a guy calling himself Bear was there to make everyone feel welcome. I wish I could remember the names of all the staff but the good times will stick with me forever. I won’t lie, the food was nothing to write home about but that didn’t matter. The trail hikes were fun. The natural water slide was so fun. The campfire skits were hilarious. The swimming, the aviary, etc. Wish I could do it over again with my kids.
Went to clear creek in the early 70’s. It was such a memorable experience that I will never forget. I hope that administrators understand what a tremendous life experience this can be for kids and never cut funding. The upgrades really look wonderful and no doubt add to the adventure. I’ll always remember the skits and the camp counselors that made it memorable.
Went to Clear Creek Camp in the late 1960’s for 1 night with my Brownie Troop. I think it was for councilors in training to practice on us and they all had cool nick names. I don’t remember the food, but I do remember the bunks & bunk house, the walled patio & the grounds all look the same I will always remember that experience and this must continue to be maintained for our future generations to experience the Angeles National Forest
