Default Visiting Information for SCI Cambridge Springs


Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Monday 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Closes Tuesday- Thursday.


Inmates may have an unlimited number of visits Monday through Friday and one visit on the weekend from anyone on their approved visiting list.

Visitors are subject to search upon entering and leaving the institution.

Regular visits may last all day if space is available. Visits may be shortened to allow other inmates the space to be with their visitors,this most likely will occur on Saturdays, Sundays and holidays. If so, visits will last no less than an hour and the first visitor to arrive will be the first visitor to be asked to leave so that all inmates and visitors have time together.

Inmates in disciplinary status and administrative custody have different rules for visitation. Please check with the inmate to know if this applies to them.

All visitors that are 16 or older are required to have one form of photo identification. If the visitor does not have one form of photo ID, then two forms of other identification are required. A minor?s name may be placed on the approved visiting list only with the written permission of the minor?s parent or legal guardian on form DC-313A.

Visitors under the age of 18 may only visit when accompanied by an adult who is on the inmate?s approved visiting list.

Purses, knapsacks, packages, etc. are to be left outside of the institution. You may bring in a change purse or wallet. The only other items allowed in the visiting room (when appropriate) are: six diapers, one plastic baby bottle, one plastic jar of baby food, car keys and an unlined sweater/cardigan. If you are in doubt about an item, call first or bring it to the attention of the Officer when you arrive.

All drugs, including prescription and over-the-counter drugs, are prohibited. Should medication be needed during your visit at the institution, please advise the Officer when you are signing in.

Visitors will park on the street on Fullerton Avenue and enter the institution via Washington Hall. This is a large building with pillars that sits outside of the fenced compound.

Do not stop and have conversations with inmates whom you are not here to visit.

Children should be fed prior to their visit to the institution. Although refreshments are available through vending machines, one should not depend upon them to be filled or in working order.

It is the responsibility of the visitors and inmates to maintain their children?s behavior. If this is not done, the visit will be terminated.

Outdoor visits within the compound are available to inmates and their visitors with proper clearance during the summer months. Check with the inmate you are visiting concerning procedures.

General visiting information:

All visitors must be on the approved visiting list. It is recommended that you arrive as early in the day as possible so that proper arrangements can be made in time for your visit. It may take time to notify an individual inmate for a visit, so please be patient.

Have proper identification with you. You will not be permitted to visit without proper identification.

Please be sure to sign in upon your arrival. If you travel by private vehicle, you will be asked to register the year, make, model and license number of your vehicle.

ALL visitors and vehicles are subject to search upon entering the institution, while at the institution and before leaving the institution. If you refuse to be searched before entering the institution, your visiting privileges may be denied. If you refuse to be searched while in the institution or upon leaving the institution, you may be detained until the appropriate law enforcement authorities arrive.

Cameras, tape recorders, radios, chewing gun, tobacco products and handbags are not permitted in the visiting area.

Visits may last all day. However, this may be reduced depending upon the number of visits scheduled for that day.

Inmates placed in disciplinary custody status may have their visiting privileges restricted.

Please use good judgment and discretion in dress and behavior so as not to embarrass others in the visiting room. Keep children under control. Failure to do so may result in early termination of your visit.

Ex-offenders must have prior written approval from the Superintendent to visit any inmate.

Do not bring any kind of gift to the institution. You may, if you wish, leave cash donations with the Lobby Officer or other staff person designated by the institution for credit to the inmate?s account. You will receive a receipt for such donations.

Food may not be taken into the institution. Food and soft drinks may be purchased and consumed where vending machines are provided. Smoking is not permitted in the visiting room.

Any visitor appearing to be under the influence of alcohol or a controlled substance will not be permitted to enter the institution.

All inmates are informed of changes that may occur in visiting regulations. It is the responsibility of each inmate to inform her visitor of these changes.

Please remember that any violation of visiting regulations may result in the suspension of visiting privileges.
