See how your patrol stacks up against the other patrols in the District in solving the mystery. The opening ceremony will begin with a crime scene skit which will set the stage for solving a crime scene mystery. The CSI Camporee will be organized into a number of activities where Scouts will learn how to gather and analyze evidence which they then can use to solve the mystery.
We are looking to bring in local Police, an actual mobile crime lab, Police dogs, and more for demonstrations and to assist Scouts in solving the crime.
