CSI Camp (for ages 6 - 11)
Providing a safe enjoyable space for 6 to 11 year old children this CSI Camp is perfect for budding detectives and mystery hunters!
Children learn detective skills, including tracking, fingerprinting, casting footprints and using photo identification kits. Using their new skills, children work together to solve ‘crimes’ committed throughout the week. Whether in the woods or elsewhere on site, all of their detective skills will be needed to get to the bottom of the mystery.
The week concludes with a mock trial to ensure the culprit gets what they deserve!
Challenge by choice
Many of the children that visit us are ready for greater challenges and this programme of CSI Camp activities allows them to fulfil their potential. Those who are not quite so eager will be sensitively encouraged to push themselves as far as they are happy to. This activty exercises a ‘challenge by choice’ policy, whereby no individual will be pressured to participate in an activity they are not ready for.
Children will learn a whole range of detective skills, including fingerprinting, tracking and photo identikits. Children can test their newly learned skills to solve ‘crimes’ that take place on site throughout the week.
See our sample CSI Camp programme for further information.
