Juvenile Boot Camps and the Juvenile Justice System


In the early 1980's many juvenile justice systems turned to a juvenile boot camp for discipline and in hopes in turning around a wayward youth. Boot camps provided many benefits for the state run agency's that would often contract out with private companies to run these type of boot camps. Some of the benefits include:

  • Short Term
  • Lower Cost
  • Better Discipline
  • Respect For Authority
Boot camps and wilderness programs at this time became a big hit, the short term was great. Most of the troubled teens would be in and out of the juvenile justice system from anywhere from 2-8 weeks.

Do boot camps work?


Just like most things that depends on your question or end goal. Boot camps are generally designed to be short in nature lasting from 2-8 weeks. These high intensive in your face boot camps can provide a teen with some help and usually are only effective in the early stages of intervention or prevention. Boot camps have high recidivism rates when used as means of treatment for teens that have serious issues.

Free Boot Camps

If there is such a thing of free boot camps it would consist of the juvenile justice system juvenile boot camp program. However the teen would have to commit a crime that would merit the juvenile justice system getting involved.  If a teen is dealing with these type of issues a boot camp will not do a lot to help him or her change their ways. Many states have completely pulled the plug on juvenile boot camps because of their high recidivism rate and many claims of abuse and some cases of fatalities.
