This camp is designed for students (grades 8-12) who love forensics, want to learn the science behind the Hollywood hype of CSI, and have a good time working with like-minded peers. Students work in teams, learn to secure a crime scene, collect and interpret evidence, and learn about how a case is eligible for grand jury consideration. Activities include workshops in blood splatter, entomology, fingerprinting, psychological profiling, cyber-crime, arson, DNA analysis, photography, canine assistance, self-defense, forensic anthropology, and many more.
CSI day camps will be held in summer 2017 at two locations: Polish Community Center in Albany, Siena College in Loudonville, and a possible third camp location in either Oneonta or Saratoga Springs to be announced.

Day camp begins with students becoming crime scene investigators as they are the first ones called to a realistic crime scene. They learn from forensics experts like medical examiners, psychological profilers, NY State Police, and others on how to secure the scene, collect evidence and begin to solve a crime. The week is filled with hands-on workshops teaching techniques in forensics and science used to examine evidence. Student investigators are briefed each morning based on their inquiries and team work. The week concludes as campers analyse their case and prepare it for grand jury consideration. Campers work together in teams, have access to experts in various forensic fields, and are supervised by accredited counselors and program directors. Lunch is provided and camp runs from 9am to 5pm Monday through Thursday and 9am to 3pm on Friday.
The Polish Community Center is located in Albany and Day Camp will run from July 17 - 21st
