SPRING MOUNTAIN YOUTH CAMP (SMYC)

SMYC is not a locked facility, but it is highly structured, similar to a military camp. Children

(Boys) are supervised at all times—but by "Probation Officers", not "guards." Technically, it

is not a detention facility but a probation facility. Youths are assigned to the camp as part of

their probation for criminal offenses. Typically, the first six months of their probation is

spent at Spring Mountain, followed by 6 months of traditional probation in Las Vegas.

Pahrump Foster and Adopt Support Group - Foster Parent Support Groups provide a

confidential environment for foster parents to receive support from other foster

parents. Group members offer each other help, encouragement, and assistance in

solving problems. The group process allows foster parents to form unique

partnerships with others and meet new friends who speak the same language that

they do. These partnerships provide the foundation for the group. Many times, these

partnerships grow and result in the provision of assistance in day-to-day activities

such as providing childcare, transportation, ect.
