Camp History

Prado Conservation Camp opened on October 1, 1963 and is located in San Bernardino County, 2 miles south of Chino on Central Avenue. The California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) and the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (CAL Fire) jointly operate the Camp. Prado Conservation Camp is under the CDCR Administrative Supervision of Sierra Conservation Center (SCC). CAL Fire management direction is provided by the San Bernardino Unit. The camp has an annual operating budget of approximately $1.3 million dollars. The cost of housing an inmate at the Camp is approximately $16,000 dollars a year. The primary mission of the Camp is to provide inmate fire crews for fire suppression principally in San Bernardino County. The camp is centrally located for immediate response to 5 different counties, but crews may respond anywhere in the State. In addition to fire suppression, inmate hand crews provide a work force for conservation projects. The primary project work of the Camp is fire defense improvements, general weed abatement, and public recreation area beautification on tax supported government properties in the local area.

Inmate Programs

Inmates perform various In-Camp projects that include maintenance, welding, equipment repair, and carpentry. While serving their prison terms, inmates learn valuable experience and work skills. The training the inmates receive at Prado Camp is not only that of hard work and strong work ethic, but teamwork, self-esteem, and the recognition of a job well done. In addition, eligible Prado Inmates participate in a G.E.D. / College program in conjunction with the California Institute for Men in Chino. The experiences on the fire line and on their work projects are life skills that will continue to follow the Prado inmates once they are released and return back to their communities.

Prado Camp has a designed capacity for 80 male minimum custody inmates; however, currently the Camp has a total population of 91 inmates. This represents four 17-man inmate fire crews. The fourth crew is made up of the only inmate Heli-Tack crew in the State of California. In addition to the inmate fire crews, Prado Conservation Camp has a Mobile Fire Kitchen Unit (MKU). This MKU may be dispatched to feed in excess of 3,000 fire line meals to feed fire fighters anywhere in the State. Prado Camp also serves as a mobilization center for fires in Southern California. During this operation the Camp may hold as many as 1000 inmates and fire fighters from all over the State, waiting to respond to fires as they are dispatched by CAL Fire.

Covid Visitation Information

All 35 CDCR prisons will offer limited video visiting starting this month to allow friends and family a way to safely connect with incarcerated people. In order to reduce noise levels in video visiting areas, effective immediately incarcerated people are authorized to bring their personal earphones/headphones to their scheduled visit. They will be required to disinfect them prior to connecting them to the computer. Staff will direct individuals when and where to connect. Institutions have also been instructed to ensure canteens are well-stocked with earphones for purchase.

If a reservation request is successful, confirmation emails will arrive with the subject line “Webex meeting invitation.” Please do not delete – this email contains a link to join the video visit and details on time and day of the confirmed visit. Please check your spam or junk folder in your email account if you don’t immediately see the confirmation in your inbox.

Please note: Incarcerated people in isolation or quarantine will not be able to participate in video visiting.

CDCR recognizes visiting is an important way to maintain family and community ties. At the same time, our first priority is the health and safety of those who live in and work in our facilities.

CDCR will now begin to offer real-time video visiting as a safe way for incarcerated people to see and speak with their loved ones. We have developed a virtual process in cooperation with California Correctional Health Care Services and the California Department of Public Health.

Under the new system, each inmate will have the opportunity for a free 30-minute video visit every 30 days. This includes holiday visits. Visits will take place on weekends and holidays. Most facilities will schedule their visits between 8:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m., but hours may vary.

Scheduling Video Visits

Prospective visitors must submit visiting requests directly to the institution where their loved one is housed, using the designated email addresses for each institution:

Only those individuals who have already been approved as a visitor may make an appointment. Step-by-step instructions can be found here. VPASS will no longer be used to schedule a visit.

Reservations will be taken weekly, beginning each Saturday at 8 a.m. through Monday at 8 a.m. for visits the following weekend. Please note, emails received outside the timeframe allowed will not be rolled over to the following weekend for review. Instead, a new request must be submitted during the following week reservation timeframe. Reservations are currently only available for the first five institutions. Not all reservations may be accepted because of space and equipment limitations.
