Vandalia work camp
« on: July 25, 2015, 09:59:37 AM »
My LO is trying to get moved over to the work camp at vandalia. He has outside clearance, no tickets etc. This week he put in a slip to the movement officer...is there anything else he can do or does he just need to be patient?

IDOC has no information on that camp anymore, the link we had is dead.  Is the camp still in existence?  They don't show it on their list of work camps.

Nothing he can do but sit and wait and let it go through the process.

Forevermah, yes the work camp there is still in existence. It's right down the road. Just drove by there yesterday on my way to Taylorville and saw the work campers walking back from chow.

Smme7, my husband ended up working with the guy in charge of the counselors for his transfer. I think his last name was something like Trevorbaugh. He first met him when he came to the dorms but after that he would put in a slip to talk to him directly. Maybe he can talk to him if his counselor isn't helping.

Yea, I noticed that it's not on the website either, but I do know it's still there!
Thanks cjm, I'll recommend that if nothing happens soon. I wonder if they'll let him know he's moving or if they'll just come get him??
