They broke off into groups to investigate made up crime scenes.

"It's a great leadership program at the high school that can help you really stand out and become a leader in the high school. And it's just a great opportunity to get yourself out there and be active in the summer," said Rice.

Vestal High School's resource officer ran the camp.

He said he hopes that it inspires teenagers to get involved in law enforcement and to give a positive image of the police to the youth.

This is the police camp's seventh year.
