Forensic Detectives

Forensics Camp 2020

2020 marks the fifth year of the National Law Enforcement Museum’s Forensic Detectives Summer Camp and we want your child to come solve a case with us!

Rising 6th-8th grade students can step into the shoes of the forensic scientist and collect and analyze evidence to solve a new case each week! Through presentations from professionals in the field of forensic science, hands-on workshops devoted to crime scene investigation with our museum educators, and exploration of the National Law Enforcement Museum’s exhibits, students will leave Forensic Detectives Summer Camp with a greater understanding of forensic science, its role in the criminal justice system, and exposure to STEM-related careers in law enforcement. Each week of camp will end with a mock trial where students will use the skills they have learned and present the evidence they have collected as expert witnesses in front of a jury.

Tuition for camp is $450 per student per session. Enroll more than one camper or enroll for an additional session of Camp and receive a $50 discount!
