Court Camp
Court Camp is an educational program offered each summer for children ages 14-18 who are or who might be considering a legal system related career and/or just interested in 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 Branch, meet Judges, Attorneys, Court Reporters, Interpreters, Clerks, Court Administrators, Deputy Sheriffs, Probation Officers, and other court personnel, take behind-the-scenes tours of the Mecklenburg County Courthouse, Mecklenburg County Jail, Charlotte Mecklenburg Police Department Crime Lab, The Charlotte School of Law, and a large law firm. 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, field trips, and hands-on activities. A mock trial and graduation ceremony presided over by a District Court Judge are 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.
