Houghton College Forensic Camp is a camp designed to tap the inner investigator. Campers will learn forensic skills and techniques used in laboratory investigations, which are often portrayed incorrectly on TV. Campers will also perform tasks such as mapping and photographing crime scenes, fingerprinting, identifying blood splatter and testing for drug and fiber residue. With these techniques, campers will be able to better understand the reality of crime scene investigations.
