Criminal Justice Camp

Due to COVID-19, and out of concern for the safety of our guests, we have canceled all summer academic camps for 2020. We would love to host you for a campus visit when it is safe to do so. If you would like information on any of our academic programs, please contact Admissions.

July 6-10, 2020

Enjoy a week focusing on careers in criminal justice with Cedarville University faculty, staff, students and criminal justice professionals. This camp will introduce you to a biblical worldview of the criminal justice profession (one of the fastest growing career fields in the nation) and help you understand how these jobs represent a unique calling to serve God.

Through fascinating, first-hand learning experiences, skills assessments, field trips, interaction with criminal justice professionals and dialogue with Cedarville faculty and students, you will explore careers in law enforcement, corrections, and the court system.

Criminal Justice Camp is open to Christian students entering 10th through 12th grades, or incoming freshmen to Cedarville University, who are considering careers in criminal justice.
