    I wonder how much this camp charges for putting troubled kids in tents and having them do "service" projects. My husband is a Church leader and we get a lot of promotions in the mail from businesses out west that want to help troubled kids. I always feel that this kind of service should be provided by public entities, which are heavily regulated. We need a modern Charles Dickens to shine a light on these private providers of children's services. When profit is the motive, children are the losers.

    The young man has probably made a number of bad choices thus far. Although still a "child" he alone bears responsibility for he consequences of most of them, although he may have other problems which mitigate the blame somewhat.

    Thoughts and prayers to the entire family, and those who try to help troubled kids like this in various programs. Although they may succeed with many kids, not all can or will be helped.

    What a sad situation. After reading this article it looks to me this boy who "ran away" doesn't want to be found. I feel for his parents.
