Camp Sessions

This camp is separated into multiple sessions during the summer. Please check the options below.


Gear up for a week of thrilling, hands-on excitement as you dive headfirst into an ultra-realistic crime simulation experience! Our expert professors will guide you through every twist and turn of forensic investigation, making it an adventure you won't forget!

This crime simulation experience includes:

  • Legal requirements throughout the investigation process, including obtaining warrants, maintaining proper chains of custody, informing suspects of their legal rights, etc.
  • Examination of a simulated crime scene and collection of contaminant-free evidence.
  • Chemical analysis to look for poisons, illicit drugs, explosives, etc.
  • Biological analysis of DNA, hair, body fluids, fabrics and other identifying markers such as “bugs” (super gross and cool at the same time). The principles underlying DNA fingerprinting and how a suspect can be identified through samples collected from relatives will be discussed.
  • Psychological profiling and interviewing of suspects.
  • Computer and mobile phone hacking.
  • Ethical implications of forensic investigations that may or may not be enshrined in law.
  • Communication skills, including writing formal reports and testifying in court.
  • Applications of forensic science in identifying victims of natural disasters, genealogy, and illegal commercial activities such as smuggling endangered species.

Get ready for a week that's not just about solving crimes but about immersing yourself in the captivating world of forensic science.

Summer Overnight Camps

Live on campus like Embry-Riddle students and explore career possibilities in flight, mechanical engineering, global security, or what it is like to be a NASA astronaut.

Embry-Riddle's overnight summer programs at the Daytona Beach Campus and Prescott Campus introduce the technology of today to the aviators, engineers, and astronauts of tomorrow.

Students live in on-campus dormitories — under the supervision of approved counselors — and share their initial experience of University living with other young people near their age.
