July 27-31: Special Agents of Summer, Camp at The Mob Museum
The Mob Museum’s answer to summer camp, set for July 27-31, will reveal an insider’s look at the events and characters of the continuing battle between the Mob and the law. Real stories will be brought to life through engaging, multi-sensory, interactive activities that will introduce campers, from 11-14 years of age, to the tools and techniques of the investigative trade and provide hands-on exposure to the American system of justice. During the week, campers will:
Hunt for evidence
Learn how to think like a real detective. Using high-tech tools and secret methods, you will learn how to catch the bad guy/suspect before they get away.
Build the case
Every great detective has to build the case against their suspect. As a Special Agent of Summer, you will learn how to read the evidence, question the suspect and put the right person behind bars.
Judge, Jury & Trial
You know how to think like a detective and you know how to build your case, now it’s time to go on trial. The final part of your Special Agent training will give you the chance to present your case in our real-life, historic courtroom.
Campers will experience U.S. history in a way that brings to life organized crime’s history and impact on American society.
Space is limited to 25 Special Agents of Summer campers, so early registration is recommended. The camp, geared toward students 11-14 years of age, runs from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. and includes breakfast and lunch. Price is $240. Members receive a discounted of $230. Please note the program fee is non-refundable.
