Questions to Ask a Teen Boot Camp – FAQ’s

1. What if my child does not want to go?

We can recommend youth escort companies that are able to pick up your child and take them to the program or camp of your choice.

Boot camps range in length from 30 days to one or more years. We do not recommend short term camps as they are not really very effective.

Boot camp style programs we work with will only take youth beginning at age 11. We do work with some therapeutic schools that will take youth as young as 9 years of age.

4. What do you recommend for defiant youth younger than 11?
There is a Parent Self Help Kit available to purchase that contains information about and actual footage of a child being taken to a facility, and life in a boot camp. If you are interested, please go to

5. How expensive are boot camps?
Prices begin at $2,100 per month. The first month in most programs is about $4,800 to cover admission fees, startup costs, etc.

6. Is there any government aid or government sponsored boot camps?
We do not have access to or information about any government aid or programs other than the juvenile system. Mos of the people we work with are trying to keep their children out of the juvenile system.

No we do not know of any free programs.

8. Are there additional fees for using your service?
Our fees are included in the program fees and tuitions of the schools and camps we do enrollment for.

9. Do boot camps have finance plans?
Many schools and camps have some type of educational loan available. Many parents have decided to take a second mortgage on their homes rather than try for an education loan. In some instances a second mortgage is tax deductible.
