Is this a fire camp? I am not sure about this one, but if it is a fire camp you might want to post your question in the fire camp forum. I do not know if anyone there will know about this camp cause as far as I know none of the woman in our forum has a guy at this camp but we might be able to answer any general questions you might have about fire camps. Come and join us in the fire camp forum.

Camp Glenwood - Boys' Camp
http://www.co.sanmateo.ca.us/Attachments/Probation/Images/Institutions/Camp_G_Road.jpgOverview
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.
Programming
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 (http://www.peninsulahabitat.org/) , an annual week-long hiking trip, and a holiday wreath-making business that raises money for activities throughout the year.
