Our mission is to create a sustainable 21st Century economy for Angels Camp.


Our purpose is to foster Angels Camp through economic development to create a vibrant business environment rich in appeal for Angels Camp residents, businesses and visitors, with an emphasis on strengthening the historical downtown as a critical element in the greater community fabric.

This will be achieved through 1) economic development including business retention and recruitment activities and programs in conjunction with community organizations, city officials responsible for economic development; and 2) destination development with the goal of developing Angels Camp into the mountain sports capital of the Sierra Nevada Mountains.

Long-Term Initiatives

  1. Build the local economy on Angels Camp’s strengths and uniqueness
  2. Build social and economic capital
  3. Build tourism infrastructure year-round for residents and visitors alike
