Data Detectives Summer Camp


The National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) is conducting its fifth Data Detectives Summer Camp in collaboration with the American Statistical Association, Bureau of Justice Statistics, Bureau of Labor Statistics, The Joint Program in Survey Methodology and the University of Maryland’s School of Public Health.

The NCHS Data Detectives Camp is a Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) summer camp that focuses on teaching statistics to rising sixth- and seventh-grade students. Camp activities cover statistical concepts to help students think like a data detective by asking the right questions, collecting needed information, analyzing the data and determining the answers.


Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this camp will be conducted virtually for the first time. The camp will take place online through Zoom video conferencing from 9 to 11 a.m. on August 24 through 28. There is no fee for registering or attending the Camp. 


Applications will be accepted through Monday, August 3. Decision emails will be sent to the parent or guardian by August 10. Those who have participated previously should not apply this year.


To participate in this camp, participants will need an online accessible electronic device, such as a Mac or Windows PC, or a tablet, a Webcam and a stable Internet connection with access to Zoom video conferencing.
