102. Eagle Academy, Florida
This boot camp was run by the local authorities. It was a so-called voluntary boot camp but I guess that some teenagers were pressured into the program.
Because it was stated a voluntary it was not closed then the State of Florida closed most of the camps due to the death of Martin Lee Anderson in another boot camp. There is an old video out there somewhere which is called “High School Boot Camp” showing the life in the camp.
The camp had an abuse case which was investigated and properly led to the closure which was publicly stated as being caused by the economy.
It doesn’t sound like a fun place to be as a teenager.
Thankfully it is closed now.
