Quehanna Boot Camp

The Quehanna Motivational Boot Camp (QBC) is a facility housing both male and female offenders. Inmates in the boot camp undergo a rigid six-month disciplinary and training program that, if completed successfully, results in their immediate release on parole. During the six-months, inmates progress through three phases. As inmates reach each successive phase, they are required to take on greater physical and treatment challenges and are exposed to higher levels of discipline. Inmates failing to make the transition from one phase to the next are transferred back to a state correctional institution.
