School Reviews

I was in Ewanakee as a teenager I was unstable I ran away from camp twice once right from camp and another time I walked away from the bus trip back from a home visit. After a few months of struggles the techniques they used finally got to me. As a group, they solve everyday problems. No one deals with problems on their own and the day doesn't progress unless the problem is solved as a group. I definitely learned a lot about myself before graduating from Eckerd. If any parents out there are debating on sending their problem child there, DO IT. This place will build your low self-esteem or tear down your cocky ego. They definitely have the systems in place to work with all kinds of problems kids are having. The best part is the kids don't miss any school while at camp. If I can remember correctly I think we had 2 grades worth of school by the time you graduate. I'm glad I was sent there.
