The first Sleepaway Camp (1983) was previously covered in this blog (you can find the original post here).  But just this week, a video popped up on YouTube by AdamTheWoo revisiting the filming locations.  You can check out the video below:





You can check out AdamTheWoo's website by clicking here.  He has many other entertaining location visits uploaded there, including My Girl (1991), The Evil Dead (1981), Edward Scissorhands (1990), Jason Lives: Friday The 13th Part VI (1986), The Truman Show (1998), and more.  


Moving on to the Sleepaway Camp sequels: Sleepaway Camp II: Unhappy Campers (1988) and Sleepaway Camp III: Teenage Wasteland (1989).

At the beginning of Sleepaway Camp III, Angela runs down Maria with a large Mack truck and steals her identity.  In this scene, the truck is shown driving down Forsyth St in downtown Atlanta, Georgia, near the intersection of Mitchell St.  The coordinates below will take you to the location of the stoop where Angela is seen sitting when the bus picks her up for camp (see picture 4).  The alley where Maria is killed is right beside it, just to the right.  The white wall which reads "Angela Is BACK!" is just to the left.

Both Sleepaway Camp II and Sleepaway Camp III were filmed back-to-back at Camp Younts in Waco, Georgia.  For the second film, some scenes were filmed at Lakewood Studios in Atlanta (such as the interiors of the abandoned cabin where Angela keeps the bodies).  But a majority of both movies were filmed at the camp.  Rumors on set were that the camp was haunted, and a few of the cast and crew claimed to have had strange experiences.  The camp had been abandoned for years before the production got there. The camp was slated to be torn down, and bulldozers were on site during the filming of the third film, waiting for the production to wrap.  






In addition to the Sleepaway Camp location video, another video was posted on YouTube this week revisiting Camp Younts from Sleepaway Camp II and III.  You can view the video above.  The video shows that a few of the buildings did survive.  All that is left of the main lodge is the chimney.  The swimming pool from Sleepaway Camp II is surprisingly still there.  The dock at the lake from Sleepaway Camp III has been removed.
