Great, another monkey on the loose to commit more crimes. Their propensity for violence and disregard for the law is what landed them there in the first place. Open season on them if you ask me.

I'm sorry what was that? a "MONKEY"? your the one who has no inteligence. All of those kids in camp adams are not bad. Actually more than 75 percent of them are good kids that feel alone because there parents dont want them and the county has no were else to put them. I should know i was in the girl section for just about 5 years. it gave me stability, something i didn't have in my home life. My mother drank, did drugs and alot of other nasty things, and i was one of the cases were she didn't scar me enough to ruin my life. some cases are different. i bet you he ran because he was scared of the stability and support that he was getting there and didn't know what else to do but run and hide from the oppertunity to be successfull. He is a product of his environment. thats how he knows to cope with problems is act out for attention and run from situations he doesnt think he's capeable of handling.

your the monkey. every kid is not bad. alot of kids are good and make the wrong decisions at times and even adults do. Some kids get sent for the wrong reasons while the ones that should get sent still have their freedom. Its not that all of them have broke the law. Some kids are sent for different reasons. You need to have a different outlook on the way of life.

I don't know much about this place and can't seem to find much information about it, but if kids are escaping sounds like something is up. I was sent to a boarding school for other reasons few years back and was abused severely by staff members. The Family Foundation School is the place, its located near the pa/ny boarder in Hancock NY. Kids ran awaqy from that place to get away from the abuse and such. Why isn't there a website or much information about this place, cept when it makes local news that kids run away? Something has to be up in this situation.

There are good and bad kids in camp adams. However if they are bad kids but them in a gated camp. There are not enough staff in the camp to watch all the kids. There was a recent escape 8/7/2011. The kid broke into a house. And damage the property. Who is going to pay for the damages. The only way to stopped this is upgrade security or shoot any criminals regardless their age that break into your house and posea a dangerous Condition to you and your family. Im sure their family would say my poor child.

An additional comment a message must be sent to the camp they should be held accountable for the kids actions, since they failed to provide security to the kids and community. If not local citizen will take matters into their own hands. Hunting season anyone?

Another escape from the camp on 8/20/2011. That makes three in one month. The camp should place a fence around the camp. I guess the owned of the camp does not want to spend the month. I can only conclude that he does not care about the livies of the lids or the people in the general area. Some or the folks are angry and really to hunt the kids down.

For those of you who think you know I will inform you camp adams is a place fro troubled youth that have gotten in trouble, and this is the last chance before they go to jail. It is ment to be a boot camp for them. It has nothing to do with thier parents not wanting them or not being there for them! It is an out doorsy place they work out they work in the kitchen in the laundry room and they even go to school there. I live close to the camp and have first hand knowledge of the camp!

The staff in camp adams have alot to be desired. The so-called manger is story teller to say the least. There must be something wrong if kids are escaping several times a month. Maybe lack of supervisor or maybe worst. The State should look into these issues.

This camp has something to do with kids for cash. 90% of kids from the cash for kids program was sent to Camp Adams. The manger and some of the guards think that they are above the law. The camp needs to have a Federal probe, to look into the actions of the so-called people.
