U-Turn Boot Camp

U-Turn Boot Camp


Parents may sometimes get overwhelmed with their children’s behavioral problems. Project H.O.O.D.’s U-Turn Boot Camp is here to help. If you have a boy 6 - 14 years of age who is struggling in school, has behavioral issues and in need of an environment that provides tough love, please register him today.

Boot Camp is a rigorous program from July 1, 2019 - July 31, 2019 where these boys will be challenged beyond anything they have experienced. They will sweat, they may cry, they will want to quit, but they will leave as productive young men armed with focus and determination.

These young men will experience a U-Turn.
