Acton Camp #11 is a minimum-security facility under CDCR supervision, this camp plays a crucial role in supporting government agencies during emergency responses to wildfires, floods, and other natural or man-made disasters. Additionally, camp crews contribute to park maintenance, assist with flood mitigation through sandbagging, and participate in reforestation projects. Participation in the Conservation (Fire) Camp Program is entirely voluntary for incarcerated individuals.

These include avenues for criminal record expungement, creating new pathways for employment, and aiding in their successful reintegration into society.

Acton Camp #11, nestled in Los Angeles County within the Angeles National Forest, boasts a rich history dating back to World War II. Originally established as a "Road Camp," it served as a residence for workers engaged in constructing the 14 Freeway. Subsequently, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department utilized the camp to accommodate county offenders.

In the early 1970s, Acton Camp transitioned to house and train non-incarcerated Fire Control Laborers under the Los Angeles County Fire Department (LACFD), earning the moniker "Camp 1." Operating with four hand crews and one heli tack crew, these dedicated teams responded to wildland and brush fires until the early 1980s, when a new agreement with the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) was forged.

Since then, Acton Camp has been a testament to the collaborative partnership between LACFD and CDCR, proudly serving the citizens of Los Angeles County and the State of California. Its fire crews are renowned for their swift responses to wildland fires and other natural disasters, covering an extensive range from the Mexico border in the south to the Oregon border in the north. Acton Camp stands as one of the busiest fire camps in the State, averaging over 500 fire responses annually.

In addition to firefighting duties, incarcerated hand crews at Acton Camp engage in vital conservation and community service projects, with project determinations overseen by LACFD. These projects encompass a wide range of initiatives, including trail maintenance, hazard reductions, and site beautifications across various U.S. Forest Service, state, and county parks and facilities. Notably, Acton Camp has completed projects such as the development of museum facilities for the Leona Valley Historical Society, contributing to local heritage preservation efforts.

Beyond their commendable work in firefighting and conservation, Acton Camp members have access to rehabilitative and educational services consistent with CDCR standards. These include substance abuse programs like Alcoholics or Narcotics Anonymous (AA/NA), religious programs, and opportunities to pursue GED and college courses. Additionally, inmates can engage in hobby crafts, music appreciation sessions, pre-release programs, and other leisure activities during their off-work hours. These initiatives underscore Acton Camp's commitment to holistic rehabilitation and the personal growth of its members, aiming to equip them with skills and resources for successful reintegration into society upon release.
