542. Woodside Trails Therapeutic Camp, Texas
In 2004 the police saved 22 foster kids from a private run wilderness camp in Bastrop County, Texas.
Two employees at the camp were charged with aggravated sexual assault of a child, a first-degree felony. The camp was closed down by the authorities. The juridical process were complicated and the closure of the camp ended up in backers of the program having tried to white wash the ordeals the boys of the camp had to endure. What became of the truth is impossible to say today.
It could not have been a fun place to be as a teenager.
