Marian University will host its fourth annual Criminal Justice Camp from June 20 – 22, 2011.

The camp will be held on Marian’s Fond du Lac campus and is open to high school students who will be juniors or seniors this coming fall.

The Criminal Justice Camp covers a wide range of exposure to potential career paths in crime scene investigation, national security, law enforcement, corrections, probation and parole and federal law enforcement, including the FBI, Secret Service and U.S. Marshals Service. All camp faculty and staff have experience in the field and function as facilitators and mentors to the camp attendees.

Campers will participate in a variety of activities that include internet crimes, crime scene investigation, forensic psychology, simulated teen court, DNA cold case and evidence collection and a homeland security simulation.

Cost of the camp is $199 if the application is received after May 2 and $179 if received on or before May 2. The fee includes all camp activities, food and lodging. A $500 scholarship is available at the completion of the camp for first-time campers who then attend Marian University. The deadline for applications for the camp is May 27.

Marian’s Criminal Justice program is based upon a strong curriculum with a variety of hands-on learning experiences. The program, currently in its 19th year, now has over 200 students enrolled in the program. Marian also offers a Master’s degree in Criminal Justice Leadership via the Professional, Adult and Continuing Education (PACE) program.
