Valdosta, GA - News release from Wiregrass Georgia Technical College
Do you have a child that loves watching crime scene shows, one who is creative and loves to work on computers, or a child that is interested in giving back to the community through volunteering and loves to be outdoors?
If so, Wiregrass might just have a camp for them. This summer Wiregrass Georgia Technical College is offering several camps for kids entering 3rd grade up to seniors.
The CSI (Crime Scene Investigation) Kid’s Camp has been created in an effort to give area students a chance to experience a new kind of summer camp!
With new equipment and state-of-the-art techniques the Criminal Justice Department at Wiregrass is hosting this camp to give students a peak in the world of forensics.
Students will learn how to gather evidence for scientific analysis in a crime laboratory. All supplies and materials needed are included in the registration fee. Targeted participants are grades 3-12 (limit 30 students).
The camp will be held June 4, 5, and 6 on the Valdosta Campus from 8am to noon. The registration fee is 20 dollars and includes all materials, a t-shirt, and a pizza party on the last day.
