The Idaho Department of Juvenile Corrections has regionalized state services for juveniles committed to its custody, making it possible for most juveniles to remain close enough to their communities so parents and other key community members can take part in the juvenile's treatment. State juvenile correctional centers are located in Lewiston, Nampa, and St. Anthony and provide a full complement of services for youth who range from 10 to 20 years of age.
St. Anthony, located in southeastern Idaho, is just a short drive from many recreational activities including camping, fishing, blue-ribbon fly fishing, hiking, golfing, hunting and winter sports including downhill skiing, cross country skiing, snowmobiling, and ice fishing. St. Anthony is located just 40 miles from Idaho Falls, the State's fourth largest city.
