Camp Glenwood - Boys' Camp
Established in 1961, Camp Glenwood serves high-risk young men who are facing extended detention in Juvenile Hall or who would have been sentenced to long-term incarceration in a secure California Youth Authority facility. Located about 30 miles south of San Mateo in La Honda, the Camp provides a structured residential setting with services addressing the boys’ serious issues around education, behavior, family, substance abuse, and gangs. The average daily population in fiscal year 2006-07 was 44.
Boys are court-ordered to a stay at Camp Glenwood for approximately six months. During that time, staff work intensively with boys on controlling their impulses and anger, graduating from high school or achieving a GED, and sustaining positive interpersonal relationships. Special services include a 16-week cognitive skill-building class, mental health and substance abuse counseling, and meditation. Boys participate in a yearly house-building project with Habitat for Humanity ( , an annual week-long hiking trip, and a holiday wreath-making business that raises money for activities throughout the year.
