The creation of Quehanna
Quehanna was created in the 1990s as the Department's first boot camp, using both federal and state funds. The camp opened in June 1992, during the Robert P. Casey administration.
Inmates are assigned to the boot camp from their designated diagnostic centers (State Correctional Institution - Camp Hill or State Correctional Institution – Muncy), where they take a battery of strength tests. The program lasts six months, and involves intense physical activity and strict discipline. Vocational training and substance abuse counseling services, as well as counseling is provided. After successful completion of the program, the inmate is released on parole.
