Criminal Justice Summer Camp
CRIMINAL JUSTICE SUMMER CAMP FOR HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS Dates: June 5-9, 2017 9 a.m. - 3 p.m.
Applications now closed
The UTSA Criminal Justice Summer Camp offers rising high school juniors and seniors a week-long, hands-on learning experience to discover what it's like to be a criminal justice professional.
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 of the criminal justice process, criminal law, and crime scene investigation.
During the camp, students will learn a basic understanding of crime and justice and the roles of the police, courts, and corrections.
The last day's session focuses on restorative justice, a system of the criminal justice system that centers on the rehabilitation of offenders through reconciliation with the victims and the community. Students will be introduced to restorative justice practices that are being implemented across the country. These practices have become tools to dealing with bullying in schools and conflict resolution.
