The Mission of the Work Ethic Camp is to provide an integrated program in partnership with the Probation and Parole Administrations that combine evidence based practices within a structured treatment environment. The overall goal is to reduce the risk of recidivism through offender behavioral change assisting offenders back into the community.
The Work Ethic Camp (WEC) is a 200-bed facility for males classified to 'Minimum B' custody. It provides an individualized program in a time frame appropriate for the individual's needs and sentence structure. Individuals may parole from WEC, progress to a community custody facility or complete their sentence.
Offenders/inmates may make telephone calls daily with a limit of fifteen minutes per day. No incoming calls will be accepted or transferred to offenders/inmates.
