523. Redcliff Ascent Wilderness Program
Redcliff Ascent Wilderness Program was founded in 1993. Over the years a number of teenagers have tried to escape the program some of them by defending themselves against the employees when they ran off. Some of them got better conditions in local detention centers, some of them were returned to the wilderness program.
The teenagers are not allowed tents but sleep in the open regardless of the conditions. It cannot be fun to be there as a teenager.
