Criminal Justice Camp

Investigate the essential role of justice.

Experience the physical rigors of becoming a police officer and discover how investigators detect and apprehend criminals. You’ll see—from a biblical and practical perspective—how the three branches of the justice system work together, and how to apply Christian ethics to everyday issues that law enforcement professionals face.

Hands-on activities teach you how to process a crime scene, present a case before a judge and jury, and conduct work as a patrol officer. In this program, you’ll work with state-of-the-art technology and learn from experienced law enforcement officers who will test you academically and physically.

Come prepared to work hard and be challenged!

Registration is open to campers from 14 to 18 years old who have just completed or are entering into grades 9–12.
