Sugar Pine Camp #9 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. Those who choose to volunteer must meet specific eligibility criteria aimed at ensuring public safety. These include avenues for criminal record expungement, creating new pathways for employment, and aiding in their successful reintegration into society.

Sugar Pine Camp #9, operated jointly by CDCR and CAL FIRE, plays a pivotal role in providing incarcerated fire crews for fire suppression primarily in the Shasta County area and across the state. In addition to firefighting duties, camp hand crews actively respond to floods, engage in conservation projects, and undertake community service endeavors.

Established on June 24, 1988, Sugar Pine Conservation Camp is responsible for the security, supervision, care, and discipline of incarcerated participants, overseen by CDCR. Meanwhile, CAL FIRE manages the camp, supervises hand crews' work, and ensures their custody during daily CAL FIRE projects. During emergencies, CDCR staff may join hand crews to provide additional support and security.

Participation in the Conservation Camp Program is voluntary, with individuals opting to volunteer. No one is involuntarily assigned to the camp. Outside of fire suppression duties, incarcerated firefighters dedicate their time to conservation and community service projects, with CAL FIRE determining the specific projects.

Throughout each calendar year, Sugar Pine Conservation Camp contributes tens of thousands of work hours to local communities, state agencies, and federal agencies through conservation and work projects. The camp houses a CAL FIRE Engraving Shop staffed by camp volunteers, producing a variety of items such as signs, plaques, and nameplates for various agencies.

Moreover, the CAL FIRE Cabinet Shop, staffed with camp inmates, produces a wide range of items, from oak cabinets to unique birdhouses. Some of these projects are donated to charitable programs like Victims of Crime and the Women’s Refuge, highlighting the camp's commitment to community service and giving back to those in need. Through these initiatives, Sugar Pine Conservation Camp not only fulfills its primary mission of firefighting but also actively contributes to the betterment of society and the support of various charitable causes.
