595. Whakapakari boot camp

The Whakapakari boot camp located on the Great Barrier Island opened in the late 1970’s and closed in 2004. Already in the 1980’s there were allogations of abuse. However the authorities made the choice to ignore them.

It could not have been fun to be there as a teenager.
