The youth camp or home shall supplement the work of the district court and may be used instead of any jail or prison, but it shall be the policy of the judge of the district court, probation officer and the superintendent of the youth camp or home to make the youth camp or home a temporary home, and as soon as possible to provide for the return of youths placed in the youth camp or home to their biological parents, adoptive parents or legal guardians.
