This study explores juvenile probationers' perceptions of legitimacy and procedural justice in juvenile corrections through content analysis of eleven interviews concentrating on their experiences in a community reentry program affiliated with the San Diego County Office of Education and the San Diego County Probation Department's Camp Barrett. The present study helps track the attitudes of juveniles in confinement with the hope that those administering the programs can better understand juveniles' perspectives. It also seeks to answer the following research question: Does Camp Barrett and its programs provide an environment that is legitimizing, delegitimizing or neutral for its participants' The study's findings support literature that indicates the second-generation boot camp style of confinement at Camp Barrett is not legitimizing, nor delegitimizing, but is neutral in this regard.
