Summer Opportunities

CSI Camp 
June 12 - June 16, 2023
Waynesburg University
Waynesburg University would like to invite students to their annual CSI Camp!
CSI Camp is designed to give students hands-on experience of what they can expect in the forensic science and criminal justice majors and, ultimately, occupations.  Camp will enable students to enhance their knowledge and understanding of forensic topics and allow them to make valuable connections with professionals and fellow peers in the field.  Students will have the opportunity to train with and learn from certified experts in a small group setting.
Students entering 11th or 12th grade, or who are spring 2023 high school graduates are eligible to attend CSI Camp.
Please visit for more information and to register, if interested.
