PUEBLO — Kids who commit crimes are getting a second chance. Pueblo Municipal Court is hosting its six week Youth Development Boot Camp.

The camp is designed for 12- to 15-year-olds who commit crimes like illegal marijuana possession or fighting.

The juveniles go through classes and get some exercise during the camp.

Judge Carla Sikes says the camp is meant to teach the kids integrity and character so they make good choices who no one else is watching.
