UAB Summer Camps

Beginning June 1, UAB will allow summer programming, including camps. COVID-19 Health and Safety Requirements have been developed for these programs and are consistent with the provisions provided by the UA System, including but not limited to, provisions related to housing, dining and facilities. All programs will be required to register with UAB's Youth Protection Office. Registration includes UAB hosted or sponsored camps as well as camps using UAB facilities (such as coach run camps).

Once a summer program or camp is registered with UAB’s Youth Protection Office, it does not need to register as an event. Click here to view COVID-19 Health and Safety Protocols. More details about UAB's summer camps will be provided soon. Check back for updates on our policies."

On the first day of camp, students are divided into teams and given details of their first case. Each team will secure a scene, survey it, diagram it, take notes and collect evidence. After the students process the evidence, staff will reveal the true facts of the case by reconstructing what actually happened.
Each day begins with staff (graduate students and digital forensics/criminal justice faculty) presentation to the teams of background on the case for the day; each team is assigned a case and will be taught how to research needed evidence. Staff will assess students’ core knowledge of the subject matter for the day (phishing, hacking, malware, etc.) by asking the group questions and engaging them in dialogue about the topic.
ChemBridge will promote students’ interest and knowledge of chemistry by introducing them to principles, methods, applications and experiments used in chemistry research laboratories.
