No. We do not imprison or house teens overnight.

Question 5:

As the parent, I don’t think I’ve done anything wrong -- Am I required to participate with my teen?

Yes. We believe parent participation is essential for the success of this boot camp.

Question 6:

Where is Get Motivated Teen Boot Camp held?

The teens and parents attend our unique Get Motivated Teen Boot Camp facility. This 14-acre facility is specifically designed to accommodate the various processes including physical training, group meetings, coaching, etc. and is complete with a confidence course.

Question 7:

Can this program help my troubled teen even though they have a violent history?

Yes. The definition of violence varies between persons and organizations. What others deem to be violent may not fit our criteria of violence which would disqualify a candidate for the program. For this reason, we request you be forthright with any violent history and we will evaluate each situation on a case-by-case basis. Our goal is to help as many troubled teens as possible without compromising our top priority of safety for all participants and staff.
Example: While teen fist fights are representative of issues to be addressed, they do not necessarily define violence.

Question 8:

Can this program guarantee success in turning our teen’s life around and getting our family back on track?

Life has no guarantees. We work diligently to establish structure, open communication and mutual respect within the family. True success will be realized when you and your teen commit to Continuous Personal Improvement (CPI), which includes maintaining structure, open communication and mutual respect by utilizing the knowledge and tools we provide through Get Motivated Boot Camp.

Question 9:

Does my teen absolutely have to wear a uniform?

Yes, absolutely, no exceptions. Teens are issued a Get Motivated Teen Boot Camp Uniform and it is the only acceptable attire.

Question 10:

Do I need to send a lunch with my teen?

Yes. We require the teens bring a nutritionally balanced lunch and the required water intake.
Note: Teens are also required to consume one quart of water in the evenings before going to bed to maintain good hydration.

Question 11:

We feel this is the right program for our troubled teen and our family but we cannot financially afford it. Are there scholarships available?

Unfortunately, we do not have scholarship or grant funds available at this time. We accept the following forms of payment in U.S. currency: Personal check, cashier’s check, money order, cash and all major credit cards. Financing and payment plans are available.

Sometimes, grandparents, other relatives or close friends offer assistance to help families with troubled teenagers. You might want to see if this option is available to you.

Question 12:

My teen is 11, can they come?

For our boot camp program we only accept teens from the ages of 12-17 (we only accept 18 year olds if they are still in high school), but we have an alternative to those that do not meet the age requirements for the boot camp. We offer One-on-one coaching for both boys and girls from the ages of 11-18. For more information on our alternative coaching options please refer to the "about us" section of our website.

This program is not designed to accommodate physically handicapped or mentally challenged teens.
