Quehanna Boot Camp 

The Quehanna Boot Camp opened in June 1992 as the Department of Corrections' first military-style motivational boot camp.  Inmates assigned to the boot camp undergo a rigid six-month disciplinary and training program.  In addition to the boot camp program, the facility accommodates individuals sentenced to State Intermediate Punishment, and it accommodates both male and female inmates.  The purpose of this website page is to provide information specific to the boot camp program.
