318. Sagewalk

Sagewalk was a wilderness program which became nationwide notorious as result of the American version of the reality show “Brat Camp”. Unfortunately the show made parents believe that this kind of therapy was safe. In the end a 16 year old died one day after he was sent to the wilderness program.

The program shut down. Teenagers who had been there have stated that it was not fun to be there as a teenager on various social media sites.
