Boot camps are not designed to deal with the behavioral elements and the emotional issues developed inDoes Juvenile Boot Camps Work For Troubled Teens struggling teens. Boot Camps like their sister programs military schools are not conducive to assisting teens make and keep long term change.

Boot camp and teen military programs aim to teach kids discipline, teamwork, and appreciation. In some aspects they are successful at teaching teens appreciation if the teen isn’t begrudgingly following orders knowing he or she only has to endure the teen boot camp or wilderness program for a few weeks. Teen boot camps and wilderness programs try to perform quick fixes on teens that have been struggling for months if not years. The idea that a teen will realize the direction his or her life is heading and be self -motivated for change is unlikely. Even if a teen desperately wanted to change his or her life they will not likely be able to replace their inappropriate learned behaviors with appropriate behaviors, in a few months. Without replacing these learned inappropriate behaviors it is very likely that a teen will enter his or her previous state of behavior within a few weeks or months after their experience at teen boot camp or wilderness programs. Longer-term and less hectic emotional growth is much more effective at helping teens replace their inappropriate behaviors with productive ones. For a specialty boarding school or residential treatment center which offers a much better chance for success for a troubled teen. The ironic component of that scenario is tuition at a quality boarding school can be competitive with a boot camp or wilderness program for troubled teens. With the military-style environment of a boot camp or wilderness program the in your face atmosphere can be intensely overwhelming, the primary philosophy behind boot camps is that the teen will become disciplined and that will be an end all do all for the rest of their problems and inappropriate behaviors.

Boot camps although often ineffective may  work if a teen is enrolled early in his or her inappropriate behavior. They could learn discipline and the fear of going back if they misbehave again might work for them. In saying however it is important to consider what the psychological effects of this strategy could be on the struggling teen.
