Default Headed to FCI Danbury - Camp

Does anyone have advice or info on Danbury FCI Camp (female offender)? I have read as many blogs as possible and the handbook. All the reading in the world doesn't prepare one for an unexpected long-term sentence.

Almost everything I read relates to the institution.

Welcome to Prison Talk. I hope you hear from folks who are familiar with that camp.

I live in Danbury and I know a few of the CO's from there. Its basically like what you will hear. There are good people and people that will test you, keep your nose clean, do your time, make little friends, trust no one. Once you get through t he first week or so, it will be routine. Ask little questions , READ READ READ. Best of luck to you.

Hi Gaglz, I don't know why there is so little info on the BOP website about the camps Seems to me that most of the visit info and "how to" (send mail, receive inmate calls, email, etc) are specific to the FCI's. I have to wonder if The Inmate Admission & Orientation Handbook applies to both the FCI & the camp - it doesn't say. But here is that link:


....can't hurt to read it, though Also, here is the link for the BOP homepage:
