The Stewart Conservation Camp (SCC) is located adjacent to the Northern Nevada Correctional Center. It orignally opened in 1978. In 1995, a new SCC was constructed to replace and more than double the size of the original camp. SCC houses minimum custody and community trustee inmates in five dormitory type units.
There are 15 Nevada Department of Corrections staff members assigned to SCC. In addition, there are 22 Nevada Division of Foresty staff members stationed at SCC.
SCC has a capacity of 360 inmates.
Programs: Vocational Training, Educational Opportunities, and Treatment Services
The majority of the inmates at SCC work for the Nevada Division of Forestry and are assigned to twelve-man fire crews. Inmates also work for Silver State Industries, which runs the ranch, dairy and the Wild Horse Training Program. Some of the inmates are classified as community trustees who provide support services for several state agencies in Carson City, Nevada. Inmates at SCC can prepare for the General Education Development (GED) test. In addition, several self-help and treatment programs are conducted by medical and mental health staff in the evenings.
Under the supervision of Silver State Industries, the ranch operates a commercial dairy, grows alfalfa, breeds and raises cattle and cares for horses in coordination with the Department of Agriculture and the Bureau of Land Management. The Wild Horse Program involves inmates training horses for adoption by the public.
