Camp Scott is a boot camp-style correctional facility for teenage girls in Southern California, which was established as a "last resort" for youthful offenders; inmates are faced with the reality that they'll become part of the adult prison system for any future crimes. Camp Scott Ladies (the title comes from a frequent form of address used by the guards) is a documentary that looks at the harsh and challenging circumstances of Fort Scott, as well as the broken lives that led four young women into lives of crime and frequent run-ins with the law -- intelligent but misguided Teesha, drug-addicted Sheree, gang member and unwed mother Melissa, and Reanell, who has been working as a prostitute since the age of 12. The film also looks at the difficult lives of the officers of Fort Scott, who are trying to turn around the lives of young women who have already traveled a considerable distance down the wrong path. An abbreviated version of Camp Scott Ladies was shown on MTV under the title Camp Scott Lock-Up, while the complete version was screened at several film festivals, including the 2001 Seattle Film Festival.
