Located between Michigan City and LaPorte in Northern Indiana, Camp Summit is Indiana’s only military style boot camp. With a capacity of 95 beds and an average age of 16.7, this six-month program is designed for juvenile males from throughout Indiana that have been adjudicated delinquent by an Indiana Courts, have committed various offenses, and are in good health. Camp Summit’s program consists of a good balance between military components such as drill and ceremony, physical training, team building and program components such as an accredited school, where high school credits can be earned and are transferable, and where students can complete their GED if 16 years of age; counseling programs to include individual, group, and family counseling, as well as substance abuse counseling, parenting classes, anger management classes, and Restorative Justice. Camp Summit is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of the American Correctional Association and a 2011 Performance-based Standards (PbS) Barbara Allen-Hagen Award Recipient. As students enter the final phase of our program, they may qualify for eight hour family temporary leaves to finalize plans for their release, by spending time re-establishing their relationship with their family, planning an educational programming, and filling out job applications. Camp Summit’s mission is to instill discipline, self-confidence, and individual responsibility in our students so that when they re-enter their communities they will have the opportunity to be productive citizens.
