Full Text: LeadAmerica, COFE's partner association, recently held its first CSI summer camp of the year in San Francisco at the University of California at Berkeley. LeadAmerica's mission is to "inspire and empower the next generation to achieve their full potential and instill a sense of purpose, integrity, and personal responsibility." Their youth leadership conferences offer students unique and dynamic career-based simulations.

A 10-day program, the CSI camp offers students the chance to gain first-hand forensic experience to hone their skills and spark their passion for the art of the investigation. Some highlights of the camp experience include a crime scene simulation, hands-on forensic training in multiple fields, interactive leadership development workshops, field experiences and excursions, as well as briefings, lectures, and discussions with forensic experts. Students who attend the camp can earn up to 2 college credits. COFE also grants an official certificate recognizing each student who successfully completes this program. Upcoming conferences will take place at Bentley University in Boston and Fordham University in New York.
