Washington, D.C. (March 28, 2014) - This is the 4th summer that the Crime Museum in Washington D.C. invites children ages 12 and up to learn all about Crime Scene Investigation.
 
Campers will learn to process a crime scene and interpret all the evidence they have collected. They will be instructed by a forensic technician on techniques for crime scene photography, document analysis, fingerprinting, blood spatter analysis, and other forensic science applications. To accommodate all parents, half day and full day options are available.
 
Camp will run two weeks in July with start dates on July 14th and 28th, 2014.

 

There are afternoon and one day CSI Camps that are $250 or $275; five day camps are $435 or $625. There are various price points available. Check out the Crime Museumís camp page for details: www.crimemuseum.org/summer-camp
 
This program is very close to what a CSI technician would do in the field or the lab. Parents and campers need to be comfortable with the subject matter. Each camper will receive all supplies needed, and at the end be rewarded with a certificate of completion and a museum t-shirt.

 

The Washingtonian said, "The Crime Museum is one of many Washington museums that offer short-term camps with knowledgeable teachers and resources that only living in the nationís capital could provide access to."

 

The Washington Parent quotes, "Susan Frese, director of education and marketing for the Crime Museum in Washington, makes it clear that catching the bad guys is not as glamorous as Hollywood makes it out to be. "Kids at our camp really learn about forensic science," says Frese, referring to the Crime Museum's CSI Camp. "[They] learn that most of forensic science is lab work."
 
Crime Museumís mission is to provide guests of all ages with a memorable insight into the issues of crime, crime fighting, and the consequences of committing a crime in America through a captivating interactive, entertaining and educational experience. The museum is located on 7th Street NW between E and F Streets, NW in downtown Washington, D.C. and online at
