The Three Lakes Valley Boot Camp is a 190 day Program of Regimental Discipline designed to allow judges to give non violent first time offenders with lesser crimes an opportunity to better themselves and become productive citizens without having to be sent to prison, while providing a less costly alternative to the taxpayers than incarceration.

Three Lakes Valley Boot camp opened in 1991 with a population of 63 as the Indian Springs Boot Camp and underwent the same change in name as Three Lakes Valley Conservation Camp in 2008 with a population of 80 offenders.

During the 190 days offenders, referred to as “Trainees”, are required to attend a “Life Skills” programming which include Substance Abuse, Anger Management, Cultural Diversity, Family Dynamics and Employability classes to provide them with a better opportunity for success upon release. Trainees also perform community service, which includes working at Opportunity Village, Habitat for Humanity, US Air Force, National Wild Horse Association and numerous State agencies.
