Camp is another term for "minimum security prison". Depending on the circumstances, as an inmate is nearing their release date, the DOC will "step down" their custody level preparing them for re-entry. This is a GOOD thing, not a bad thing. They would not offer this if they had any trust concerns with this inmate.

This depends on the conditions of his release. If there is a parole or probation, then YES he will have to begin his re-entry in the county where he was convicted.

Inmates are given a review when 17-19 months remain on their custody term. At that point, halfway house eligibility through the Second Chance Act is considered. Inmates may serve the last ten percent of their sentence (up to 6 months) at a halfway house/home incarceration. Inmates can serve half of this period at the halfway house and half of this period on home incarceration. Inmates may be found ineligible for halfway house placement for reasons such as poor institution adjustment,...

Your inmate's correct release date would normally be given to them by their counselor. If they have given him the full time release date it could mean that is the actual date. He is in the home stretch, we are not certain that contacting the counselor yourself is a great idea. Ask your inmate to get some clarification on the "real out-date".
