The Case of Jimi Jurkwahd:
Criminal Arrest or Cardiac Arrest?

  • Teams pursue realistic crime scene investigation
  • Complete 13 different hands-on forensic science labs
  • Guest experts teach alongside professional camp staff

Each day is infused with entertaining intrigue where camp participants view video footage of suspect interactions that leak clues and potential motive. On the last day, teams interrogate their main suspect, and present their cases to a prosecuting attorney. A short reveal-film of what “actually” happened concludes the camp.
