Virtual Summer Youth Camp: The Criminal Mind


Bridge the gap between psychology and criminal justice

Monday, July 13, through Friday, July 17

10 a.m. to noon

Grades 9 through 12

This virtual camp is perfect for high school students who are interested in criminal justice and law enforcement careers, as well as those interested in learning more about the criminal mind. The curriculum focuses on motives and causes for crimes, including a psychological perspective, and the criminal justice system response. Campers will learn how the human psyche and crime integrate in this interdisciplinary learning experience led by Ronald Kelly, assistant teaching professor and program coordinator of administration of justice, and Cindy Drazenovich, instructor of psychology.

This camp features guest speakers, including psychologists and people who work in the prison system, and will explore:

  • how criminal theory and psychology inform how some people become involved in criminal activity while others do not,
  • how psychological illness plays a role in crime, and
  • historic and infamous criminal cases.


This camp is a $79 investment and is delivered virtually via Zoom. Class size is limited, so sign up today!
