Camp History - The Delta Conservation Camp #8, was opened in June of 1988. The camp is jointly operated by the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) and Cal Fire. The main mission of the camp is to provide inmate fire crews for fire suppression in the Sonoma, Lake, Napa Unit and the Solano County area, although, crews can be dispatched throughout the state. In addition to fire suppression, inmate hand crews provide a workforce for conservation projects. The in-camp Cal Fire project is a Digital Decal Sign Shop, which produces letters, numbers and striping of vehicles for fire and law enforcement agencies.

The CDCR is responsible for the security, supervision, care, and discipline of the inmates. Cal Fire maintains the camp, supervises work of the inmate fire crews and is responsible for the custody of the inmates on their daily projects. CDCR staff may accompany inmate crews while assigned to emergencies to assist in the care and security of the inmates. Inmates must have 24-hour a day direct supervision while on work projects and while assigned to emergency incidents.

Inmate Programs - Delta Conservation Camp currently has religious sponsors, who provide religious services for the inmates assigned to the camp. These services are provided once a week.

Community service projects - During the 2018/19 fiscal year, Delta Conservation Camp provided local communities and state agencies with 103,056 hours of work through conservation and work projects. Additionally Delta Camp crews provided 109,420 hours of work on emergency incidents (firefighting and emergency response). It is estimated through the emergency responses to fires and work projects, the inmates of Delta Camp provided a cost avoidance of $2,124,760 to the taxpayers of California.

Covid Visitation Information

Delta Conservation Camp #8, a collaborative effort between the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) and the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (CAL FIRE), serves a critical role in fire suppression efforts and conservation projects in the Sonoma, Lake, Napa Unit, and Solano County areas, with the flexibility to deploy crews statewide. Established in June 1988, the camp is dedicated to providing trained incarcerated fire crews while also contributing to community conservation initiatives.

Under this joint operation, CDCR assumes responsibility for the security, supervision, care, and discipline of camp participants, while CAL FIRE oversees camp maintenance, supervises fire crew activities, and ensures custody during daily work projects. In emergencies, CDCR staff may accompany incarcerated crews, ensuring seamless coordination and support during fire suppression efforts.

When not engaged in firefighting duties, incarcerated crew members undertake various conservation and community service projects, guided by CAL FIRE's directives. These projects encompass vegetation cleanup around schools, parks, and waterways, as well as assistance at the Yountville Veteran’s Home and various CAL FIRE facilities. Additionally, the camp collaborates with local, state, and federal agencies to address community needs, contributing thousands of hours of labor annually to support public initiatives.

An integral part of Delta Conservation Camp's operations is its in-camp CAL FIRE project, the Digital Decal Sign Shop, responsible for producing essential signage for fire and law enforcement agencies. This project not only enhances camp functionality but also provides valuable vocational training opportunities for incarcerated individuals.

In line with CDCR's rehabilitative mission, Delta Camp offers a range of educational and support services aimed at facilitating offender reintegration. These services include substance abuse programs, religious programs, and access to GED and college courses. Notably, Alcoholics and Narcotics Anonymous programs are available, supplemented by regular visits from local religious volunteers to provide spiritual guidance and support.

Furthermore, the camp hosts Alternatives to Violence (AVP) Basic and Advanced workshops multiple times a year, fostering conflict resolution skills and promoting positive communication among participants. Through these comprehensive programs and initiatives, Delta Conservation Camp strives to not only address immediate fire suppression needs but also promote the personal growth and rehabilitation of incarcerated individuals, ultimately preparing them for successful reintegration into society upon release.
