Camp History

Pilot Rock Conservation Camp, under the administrative supervision of Sierra Conservation Center (SCC), was constructed in 1959. The primary mission of the camp is to provide inmate fire crews for fire suppression principally in San Bernardino County. In addition to fire suppression, inmate hand crews provide a work force for conservation and community service projects. CAL FIRE in-camp projects include upholstery/canvas shop, vehicle maintenance shop and cabinet/wood shop. Products are provided to local tax supported governmental agencies.
