Brat Camp is back but with a difference. The families chosen this time are being destroyed because mum and daughter are at each other’s throats. The solution? Both mum and daughter are dropped in the middle of the wilderness, hundreds of miles from anywhere, forced to live in Stone Age conditions and hiked ‘til they drop’.
For the first time each episode concentrates solely on just one family, following their story from the moment they leave the UK to the time they return, hopefully transformed.
This week 14-year old brat, Nicole Pear and her mum Jackie, travel to the Arizona desert in hope of mending their broken relationship. Home has been a battleground for the past two years and it’s been over ten years since Nicole gave her mum a hug. Mum and daughter are in the hands of Anasazi, a wilderness therapy programme that specialises in healing parent and child relationships with an approach that’s more peace love and understanding than short sharp shock.
But foul mouthed Nicole proves a tougher nut to crack than even her mum expected. After three weeks there’s little sign of Nicole softening and Jackie’s only chance of success is to leave Nicole in the desert for more wilderness therapy, returning home with her. But will an extra five weeks in the desert do the trick? And will Nicole ever forgive her mum for leaving her there?
