Found another review on Google:

you know im going to have to be honest here. I am a camper here right now as of 8/14/19. So far i dont like it obviously. But i have to deal with it. There is lot of things i disagree with and i cant lie. Like me having to mow 14 acres of land it gets boring after a while. But it teaches life skills. I have learned alot here. But i still disagree with a lot of things. He should put God into the picture. I had to spend the night there my first weekend i went there. On Sunday he said to go to church and, we did. But something was not right. I felt like Major Dankowski wasn't there. He says hes a man of God. But he dosent act like it. In my Bible theres a page in there that says 100 things real men dont do. Half of those things he dose. Especially the first one "Real Men dont grumble and complain". I see this alot in him. Now im not saying thats all he dose and hes a bad guy. I just think he dosent under stand what he is doing especially the way he talks to me and other kids. I have made friends there but i always was shut down saying we cant bond or interact with each other which made me upset. I made friends with this kid named Jason he was pretty cool we worked together. But i do under stand why Dankaoski split us because we would get distracted. But i really think Dankaski should really put God into the picture. Another one in my bible says, "wanting to be rich or want money all the time". Thats another problem he has. Now lately he has ben nice a little for than he has since im by my self(which sucks im bored all the time no one to talk to really). But its not a bad place. I mean hey you know i dont like Dankawski at all. But he helps. I'v seen improvement in myself. This is really all i have to say. This is whats in my heart about Dankaski and his program.

I wish i would have beleived the reviews on how bad of a place this is to bring ur kids.   I was wrong for not listening.  They r crooks.  All they care about is ur money.   And if they get u to sighn those bootcamp papers.  Then at that point they have ur money whether u leave or stay the minimum time required.  So therefore they could care less about u and ur kids.  As long as they get u threw them doors.  And if u think ur not goin pay them think again they will sue u.   This has been the worst decision i could have ever made for my family.  I hope no one has to go threw this b.s.    we as parents always want better for r kids and sometimes we look for help anywhere.  Because at times where vulnerable.  I made a decision i regret because i was vulnerable.   Please dont make the same mistake.     God bless u and ur family.

Does your teen have self esteem issues? does your teen have issues forming relationships with his/her parents? If so, then send them to Get Motivated Boot Camp, because then, their last hopes and dreams will be eternally crushed. Any bit of self respect that he/she holds will be eviscerated by this Boot Camp's insane and totalitarian program. Have you ever wanted to see an insane, ruthless, maniacal, sociopathic dictator in action? Then get your hopes because Mr. Dankowski is the closest thing to an actual dictator.

It is located in Aubrey, Texas

The owner seems to have taken a military title without ever earning it in the military:

I contacted this group to help me get control of my teenage daughter. The programs seems great but as I got further into it, I feel they are unorganized. I expressed my feelings of being unorganized and "The Major took it as a personal attack rather than the truth. The "Major" gave me information to report my daughter as a runaway even though I knew where she was. I read other reviews that said he has not even served in the military, but  demands the title as "Major" .  I decided to take intervention into my own hands. I was able to get her home.  I did have to call the police for assistance, but they told me that I would be in trouble if I reported her as a runaway because I did indeed know where she was. No, no, no: That's not what " The Major"  told me. There was another situation, which we got into a big disagreement about, but I will just leave it as they don't have all there ducks in a row. I can't trust  them, so I can't trust my  family going there. The day I got her home was hell, but the days since then have been a work in progress. Things are looking up for us.......

Get Motivated is the worst decision you can make for your kid and or kids. I attended this place because my grandpa had run across Major Dankowski during a family battle to "take me down" they fooled me into getting there, I slept all the way there just to have 3 men in military uniforms pull me out of a car and make me take almost everything off. The "projection" method is just another word for them to use to make you think they don't actually yell at you but that is the biggest bullshit lie ever. Major Dan can and will forever rot in hell for the things he does to kids.

This place is hell on earth for your children. Do not take them here. This place promotes abuse and instills unnecessary and extreme fear into children. Do not go here. If you are having issues with your child, there are many other viable and more helpful options to help you and your child.

The Camp was a part of a TV-show called "Extreme Brat Camp"

Here is a review found on Google:

I was forced into this program at a young age because my parents were desperate for an easy fix to a problem that was built over years, listen to my story before you send your child here. I'm in my 20s now, and here's my take on this place: Its a huge waste of money and time.

Taking your children to a culty christian boot camp run by two of the most arrogant people I've ever met in my life won't fix your children, you're the problem. A problem you can't throw money at. Break the habits that got you to this point in your life, no amount of money or child programs will help you, sheer will and a mind set of "I want both myself and my children to be decent people". If you want an easy fix and you think "2 days and that's it, my kids will be perfect", you're not caring enough and don't want to see your children change. Teach your children the freedom of choice when it comes to religion, teach them morals, values and instill respect at an early age, have them work at 15 years old to instill a value of money, limit their screen time and push them to do their best as school. Teach them that there are consequences for everything and don't hold their hand for everything. Teach them to be a better person, not so they can go to w/e after life your religion promises good people but so they can be good people.

Think long and hard about your kid, who prob sits in his/her room all day playing minecraft and ask yourself "What am I doing wrong?" Maybe the constant fighting you do with your wife/husband or the terrible way you handle things makes him/her not even want to deal with you. Shame on you if you think sending your kid to a problem camp will fix them over night. The fix is only there at camp and if the problems that are generated over years at home aren't fixed now they won't be fixed if you send your kid here for 1-30 days. If you think an instant lifestyle change will fix your childs issues without you changing your ways then you need this place for sure. Someone much older than you will basically force you to live by their lifestyle to raise your kids, have fun.

Also on conductdisorders.com the situation got worse after a stay in the camp: She was angry at us and she grabbed a knife (gory details, be warned)

Doesn't have the actual video though.

I was a patient there many years ago and this is the only video I have ever seen of PV since I have been home.

When you are old enough to give consent, the therapists can groom you and have other types of sexual encounters in Montana. That must be the conclusion of the investigation against Chaffin Pullan.

It is properly not what the parents hoped for when they sent their daughters to treatment in Montana but it is what they got.

Rape conviction in Utah underscores risks at programs for troubled teens in Montana
by Seaborn Larson,Montana Standard, February 14 - 2019

A former therapist at a private teen treatment program near Kalispell was convicted in 2018 of repeatedly raping a 16-year-old girl he was caring for in one-on-one sessions at a program in Utah.

Jason Calder pleaded guilty in Utah District Court to four felonies, including rape, object rape, forcible sexual abuse and obstructing justice. As part of the plea agreement, 12 sexual assault-related charges were dismissed, the Salt Lake Tribune reported in January 2018.

Authorities opened the case after the girl disclosed the abuses to another therapist.

Calder worked seven years as a therapist at Summit Preparatory School near Kalispell, and only worked with boys, Rick Johnson, founder and director of development at Summit told the Missoulian on Thursday. He said no complaints were ever leveled against Calder in Montana; his background check came back clean and no previous employers raised any flags in reference calls before he began working there in 2007. Calder left the school in 2014 for a job with a higher position at a program in Utah, Johnson said.

“We were actually very surprised, very appalled, and I was just saddened by all the clients that he worked with that maybe he had been inappropriate with,” Johnson said in a phone interview.

Had the abuses happened in Montana, the 16-year-old girl's allegations may not have led to prosecution.

Since October, a private teen treatment program near Thompson Falls has been sued three times by families alleging program administrators at Reflections Academy failed to protect their daughters from grooming and subsequent sexual relationships with an employee there. Sanders County prosecutors told the Missoulian in December they declined to press charges against Chaffin Pullan because the girls' ages were above the age of consent.

Johnson said Monday that, while he hasn't seen the details of the proposal, he supports a bill currently moving through the Legislature to make it a crime for therapists, licensed or unlicensed, to engage in sexual relationships with residents at private residential treatment programs in Montana.

“Certainly any therapist that has sex with a client should be held criminally responsible for that behavior,” he said. “That almost has the flavor of incest. It makes you sick to your stomach to think about it.”

The bill, HB 282, carried by Rep. Denley Loge, R-St. Regis, has passed approval of the House and will next be heard by the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Johnson said Summit employs training with all employees to eliminate any potentially suggestive behavior, completes reference checks and conducts background checks for all employees.

Who wants to bet the program director here is putting on a show?

What's sad is that if nobody gave a shit about American kids, you can guarantee even fewer will care about those who may lack citizenship.

This country disgusts me. I hope it's utterly destroyed.
