I was a resident twice back in the early 70's totaling more than a year. I'm sure there gone now but I will never forget Mrs Chambers Mr Anderson Dentin and last but not least Pieleo. They made me feel good about myself and realize for the first time I was not so dumb after all. They made a huge impact in my life and probably saved it. I've lived a good life since then, became a machinist married and still married to my high school sweetheart, two daughters, seven grand kids. Thank You All

By the way, how many of the inmates or is wards, are illegal immigrants or offspring of illegal immigrants and why hasn't San Mateo County reported them to Immigration and Customs Enforcement?
Let's not forget about the children in dependency petitions that are here illegally and why they are not reported to ICE!
First of all this program is designed to help all youtrh at risk, and for you to claim that the parents should be deported, i mean what are you thinking would you like that for your family, i mean think before you write. I believe that we all deserve a second chance in life, thanks to programs like Camp Glenwood they can help.

Camp glenwood needs to provide a spiritual ceremony to the kids detained there! Such as a native american sweat lodge!!

I was detained in glenwood around 1994-1995..and it was a changing experience! This facility help change my life!....I remember MR.G...and how he kept us physically fit! And the weekend passes! The only thing it lacked was a native american religious ceremonial practice area with a spiritual leader! San mateo county should look into the sweat lodge and its effect on youth.
good idea!!

I was detained in Camp Glenwood from 2003-2004, about 9.5 months. This place was a nightmare. It was my first offense as a minor and I did not complete the program. After nine and half months I was removed from the facility for missing an appointment with a counselor, Selma. Half way through my stay at Glenwood I was informed by my unit supervisor that the camp officials didn't agree with my sentence and felt I should have gone to CYA. He basically told me that I would have to work extra hard and give them no excuses to kick me out. At 15 years old I took this news rather hard and believed I could not succeed as the odds were stacked against me. My family and I despised Glenwood for their unorthodox practices and single mindedness. Two juvenile inmates escaped while I was there. Security is non-existent at the camp.
