Still in high school?

We've got just the thing for you! Join us for Strategic Intelligence camp at Patrick Henry College. SI camp functions as a unique environment for Christian teens to interact with the idea of “How should intelligence look from a Christian perspective?” In our era, terrorism, privacy, security, legality, technology, and culture present increasingly thorny situations that touch intelligence and are extremely relevant to everyday citizens, both as patriots and as Christians. Through lectures, activities, simulations and discussions, SI Camp attempts to help students begin developing a framework for understanding key questions.
