543. Rite of Passage Wilderness Camp, Nevada

When state officias visited the Rite of Passage Wilderness Camp located near the Walker River Indian reservation near Shurz, Nevada, they found that boys were intentionally denied clothing adequate for the harsh conditions, routinely assaulted by staff, and deprived of meals.

The lack of oversight of the children in the program who has placed in foster care in California resulted in changes in procedures.

However it cannot remove the fact that it could not have been fun to be there as a teenager.
