Campers learn how to become detectives for a day by investigating a mock crime scene or examining fingerprints.
Unlike any other criminal justice summer program, our campers have the opportunity to tour the FBI facility which is closed to the general public.
College of Public Policy faculty with years of experience in their chosen field instruct students on topics such as the criminal justice process, criminal law, and crime scene investigation.
Campers learn a basic understanding of crime and justice as well as the roles of the police, courts and corrections.
The last session of the camp focuses on restorative justice, a strategy of the criminal justice system that centers on the rehabilitation of offenders through reconciliation with the victims and the community.
