It's summer camp with a twist, with the goal of trying to get local high-school students to head to college. Right now, dozens of teens from Jefferson High are in Dekalb for the third annual “Real NIU Experience”.
It's a week long stay where students get to see the benefits of a higher education. From police CSI TV show type crime scene investigations to learning how to take blood, the students are thrown into a college like atmosphere.
Kids also get to live in a residence hall giving them a taste of the social benefits of going to college too.
