Forensic Kids Camps

Basic and Advanced Crime Scene Investigator Camps
Rising 6th – 12th graders

Students in our camp will participate in exercises that include techniques used in forensic laboratory and crime scene processing. Campers will use our 2000 sq. foot crime scene facility where we set up mock crime scenes for them to search and analyze. We also have a mock court room, state of the art computer forensics lab, and outdoor props for students to use as police and crime scene investigators do.

Students will process and document mock crime scenes using “real world” techniques and equipment, then use laboratory equipment to analyze evidence obtained from various crime scenes. Do you want to become a CSI?  This is the place where real life CSI’s are trained. Our Forensic Academy trains police and crime scene investigators all over North Carolina and as many as nine other states send people here for training. Campers will also get demonstrations of equipment seen on TV, like our laser trajectory kits, Bluestar reagent for blood spatter, alternate light sources, electro-static dust lifters and much more.

Students will also practice fingerprinting, casting and molding shoe impressions, developing and lifting fingerprints, collecting and documenting evidence, and maintaining the chain of custody of evidence. Campers will learn to use our Fuji Digital cameras for crime scene photography during our mock exercises. They will process mock scenes and bring their evidence into our courtroom on the final day of camp. Due to popular demand, there are two sessions of CSI camp.
