Court Camp is an educational program offered each summer for children ages 14-18 who are interested in a legal career or learning more about the law and the North Carolina Judicial Branch. The week-long camps take place at the Mecklenburg County Courthouse.
Participants of Court Camp learn about the North Carolina Judicial System, meet Judges, Attorneys, Court Reporters, Interpreters, Clerks, Court Administrators and other personnel, and take behind-the-scenes tours. Participants also observe live criminal and civil trials and participate in a mock crime scene and mock trial. The curriculum includes guest speakers, classroom lecture, videos, and hands-on activities. A graduation ceremony is held on the last day of the camp at which parents are invited to attend. Participants are supervised by an adult at all times during Court Camp.
