Trinity Teen Solutions (for girls) and Triangle Cross Ranch (for boys) located in Wyoming are being accused of forcing teens into hard labor and humiliating punishments. These camps are a Christian therapeutic programs designed for troubled teens to cure them. 

There have been many reports of injuries to women that require surgery from hauling heavy metals. If not obeyed their punishments consisted of running up mountains and minimal food supply. They say they were tied to goats and branded with a cross as punishment.

The camps monitored letters and phone calls made between the teens and parents. The teens had no way to escape as the only gas station was about 30 miles away and they were bordering the Beartooth Mountains.

When released there were many reported allegations of abuse at the ranch to authority and the organizations remained under investigation whilst receiving teens from around the country. The Wyoming Department of Family has been receiving complaints of abuse back to 2007. 

This camp has caused many mental health problems to the teens from the abuse and trauma. These two boarding schools are now facing lawsuits for alleged horrific abuse.
