Brisbane Times has reported that young people will spend four weeks at the camps cooking, cleaning, doing physical activities and studying while under constant surveillance. Mr Newman says they will be given an opportunity to turn their lives around under the guidance of mentors and their families.
The five boot camps will be trialled for two years.
