Summer camps for kids with behaviour problems

Young people with behaviour problems may find it difficult to interact with others. Behaviour problems range from disruptive behaviour to exhibiting aggression toward others. There are camps designed to help children gain control of such behaviour. This is sometimes the choice parents opt for when they have tried other methods with no success. Other times, children are forced to attend these camps by the court system after run-ins with the law. The camps are devised to set kids on the right path and serve as a deterrent to unruly behaviour.
