Camp Barrett is located in the rural community of Alpine, near Descanso. Camp Barrett provides two commitment options to the Juvenile Court. The first commitment, Breaking Cycles and Drug Court, serve youth ages 13 to 18 years old and accommodates commitment programs from 28 to 240 days, with an average stay of approximately 90 days. The second commitment, Camp Barrett, is focused on a higher level of delinquent males, ages 16.5 through 18 years committed to 365 days with a possibility of getting released as early as five months for good behavior and excellent participation in programming.
