I have a daughter who is at Camp white lake. I'd like to learn all I can about the place but the Michigan Doc gives very little information. Can anyone tell me what the resident dwellings are like..what kind of work the women have to do...and any info about the conditions at the camp? Can the women walk around without fences or bars? Do the guards wear uniforms or their own clothing? What can the women wear?

I'll take any and all informtation I can get. Thank you for your help.

i drive past this place every day. i don't believe there is even a sign out front. we in white lake refer to it as the "womens prision". as far as i know it looks like its a very low security prision. i never see anyone walking around inside (there are windows but i don't believe bars, but i'm not sure). i have never seen anybody outside, milling about, unless there is a back area where they go. it is pretty small. never very many cars out front. there are two buildings. one where the "prisioners" are kept and then another big building, like maybe where they keep work vehicles and what have you. like i said, i drive by there every day, to and from work and there in never ANY kind of activity. without knowing what is going on inside the building, i would have to say that it looks low security and pretty decent.

i hope this helps.

There was an article about the prison in the last 6 mos. in one of the area newspapers, you could probably dig it up with a little effort.
They have a volleyball court out back and are allowed time outside, as I have seen them playing volleyball and walking around the fenced property. I have seen prisoners outside of the fenced area with a prison guard walking to and from the the maintenance building on the site. From what I understand it is a place where they hold short term prisoners(<5 yrs?), and the ones they had interviewed for the article have a positive impression of the place.(being what is)
