How many people are going to these bootcamps with zero experience? From the colleagues and friends that I know who have attended them all are programmers by trade. All of them have many years in the industry. They go to get training in new languages and patterns and work is paying for it.

But if these camps are letting just about anyone in I would have a problem with that. You have to have a solid foundation in the basic of CS at least.
