I watched 'brat camp' last week (against my better judgement), and I found it really entertaining. Basically there's a camp in the US where they try to brainwash tear-away kids into behaving in a civilised manner. The idea behind the programme is to send some British kids to the camp, and film the results. Parts of it were hysterical, like the 5 hour stand-off with one kid who refused to remove his tongue stud. Other kids had their piercings removed with wire cutters. Another kid decided to pretend to be mentally ill, in an attempt to get sent home. The staff were having none of it. The staff running the camp seem to go on the principle that they can be even more stubborn and difficult than teenagers, and it would appear to work. The camp is similar to an outward bound course, but in a particularly barren and uninviting desert. If the kids behave, they can earn luxuries such as food, and cutlery. It's going to be interesting to see the results. To top it off, the staff go by 'native american' names, such as 'owl's wind' 'running shoe' and 'elk bladder' (or something like that, anyway). If you want to give it a try, it's on Tuesdays at 9pm, on Channel 4.
