Criminal Justice

Explore the role of criminal justice in a God-ordained government.

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

You’ll learn how the three branches of the criminal justice system work together from a biblical and practical standpoint. Experience for yourself the physical rigors of becoming a police officer. Gain an understanding of the hiring process. And discover the methods investigators use to detect and apprehend criminals.

Through hands-on activities, you’ll learn how to process a crime scene, present a case before a judge and jury, and conduct work as a patrol officer. Field trips may include a visit to a working jail to observe the corrections portion of criminal justice.
