Rehabilitative Influences in California Youth Conservation Camps. Phase I: The California Youth Conservation Camps and Their Wards.
Roberts, Chester F., Jr.
To provide a general overview of the Youth Conservation Camp environment and the differences and similarities among camps due to selective assignment and the "weeding-out" process, a review was made of four main camps operated by the California Youth Authority and the California Division of Forestry. An analysis of the major personal and background characteristics of the camp wards during 1962 and 1963 disclosed that: (1) The wards 16 years old and above who are assigned to camps are significantly different from Youth Authority wards in other institutions in terms of parole performance characteristics, (2) No one camp displays a significant difference in overall parole performance in relation to the total camps, (3) Data from 1962 parolees suggest that there are differences in the parole performance of certain categories of wards when released from different camps, and (4) Wards assigned to each of the four camps show a number of significant characteristic differences in comparison with the proportion in the total camps. Phase 2 of the study is VT 008 900. (SB)
