CSI Camp

CSI Camp provides an irreplaceable hands-on experience for high school students interested in careers in forensic science and criminal justice.

This event has passed for 2022. Thank you to everyone who participated!


If you've ever wondered if the lab and forensic techniques on the television shows are real, find out for yourself and register for Waynesburg University's annual CSI Camp!

CSI Camp will be held from June 13 to 17, 2022, and is designed to give students hands-on experience of what they can expect in the forensic science and criminal justice majors, and ultimately, occupations.

Students entering 11th grade, 12th grade, or who are spring 2022 high school graduates are eligible to attend our Camp.

All visitors are required to adhere to the Keep Waynesburg Well Plan

If you have any questions, please contact Isaiah Skeete at 724-852-3216 or isaiah.skeete@waynesburg.edu.
