Miami Teens Become Junior G-Men at Summer Camp

Feds give high schoolers the FBI experience

When you think of summer camp, you probably picture swimming and hiking in the great outdoors, but one group of campers in Miami is opting for investigating crime scenes and negotiating hostage situations.

Camp starts today for 40 high school students who want to learn all the ins and outs of working for the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

The Miami Dade College's School of Justice and Career Services has partnered with the FBI to give the opportunity to spend a week learning the field work the Feds have to deal with while on the job.

The kids will spend the next five days performing mock CSI work, SWAT team-type scenarios, fraud and biotech work and other public safety procedures, all on the MDC's North campus.

Attendance at the camp is free for the 40 students from the 11th and 12th grades who were required to have good conduct and attendance, a 2.5 GPA, and written recommendation from a teacher.
