About the Camp

This year’s Forensic Science Camp will feature a crime that needs to be solved. Campers will process a crime scene and collect vital evidence. Once the evidence is collected, the campers will learn the laboratory techniques needed to analyze the physical evidence. By the end of the week the campers will have gathered enough information to solve the crime!

June 17 to 21, 2024

This camp is intended for high school juniors and senior. Younger high school classes may be allowed to attend with permission of the director.


Made possible by a grant from Lilly Endowment Inc.
