I worked at Camp Adams and it is an awful place. No sercurity, no fencing, and everything is purchased at lowest bidders cost without any consideration for quality. This includes food, clothes, and education. The teachers there are a joke and the staff is horrendous. I was "let go" for making too many complaints for how the youths were treated at the camp site. This place really needs to be investigated by the government completely unannounced and then I wonder what types of citations would come from it.

Are u people kidding? im 22 and was there when i was 17...there are good kids bad kids,mean kids and dumb kids. where ever you are in life. it wasnt this place that got me on the right track, it was me and they helped. this place is a joke if your a joke. people/programs like this cant help you if you dont help yourself. and yes the staff seem and act like juviniels themselfs and the one guy i think jason looked high everyday. a kid sued the place wen i was there because if he didnt do what they tolded him to do they would "slam" him...literally slam him on rocks. the place has thousands of law suites pending and yes something is seriously "up"

Nice try. Those poor children from the kids for cash scheme weren't sent there.

i was stuck in that pl;ace for almost a year and i escaped. i escaped because the god damned staff was abusing me and i was over it. no "adult" listened to me and i finally did what i had to do. and... before you go calling people names and assuming they are there because they are "horrible children" remember that the lack of a good household environment is what causes thats crap PLUS... i was there because my mother beat the shit out of me and my probation officer needed to send me somewhere and didnt want me to get lost in the system so seriously... before you go running your mouth you should SERIOUSLY check your facts.
maybe you should go spend a year there... get your damn head straight.
help please

Is there anyone who has experienced camp adams, child and/ or staff nember, former or present in the past six months and share their experience. What is a day like from when you wake up until you lie down to sleep? Activities? Meals? Staff? Is there any counseling, therapy? What about parental visitation what is that like? for any parent who visited their child at camp adams. And anything else that you can think of to inform the public of this organization. Does anyone know if a website or a phone number to call to speak to a staff person directly.

Good and bad are subjective terms. What's important is that these kids feel so desperately trapped that they are willing to risk the legal ramifications of escaping imprisonment. The camps are not as bad as the detention centers, or so I heard from the other girls I went to camp with, but they do have the same effect on the mind of the juvenile psyche: Nobody loves you, society doesn't want you, you are bad. You want to know why these kids commit so many crimes? Look to the faithless community that condemns them before they even commit them. Look to the detention centers that reinforce bad behavior, and for Christ's sake, look to yourselves.
