Camp History

Delta Conservation Camp CC#8, was opened in June 1988. The camp is jointly operated by CDCR and CAL FIRE. The main mission of the camp is to provide incarcerated fire crews for fire suppression in the Sonoma, Lake, Napa Unit and Solano County areas, although, crews can also be dispatched throughout the state. In addition to fire suppression, incarcerated hand crews provide a work force 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.

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 incarcerated crews while assigned to emergencies to assist in the care and security of the inmates. Inmates are supervised 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. Volunteer sponsors also provide services for AA and NA programs.  These services are provided once a week.  Additionally, several times per year Delta Camp holds AVP (Alternatives to Violence Project) Basic and Advanced workshops.
