Experience the drama and intrigue of espionage during The National WWII Museum's Summer Spy Camp! Using real WWII scenarios as background, campers will be presented with activity-based puzzles and problems that they will have to overcome using both physical and mental teamwork skills, on their way to completing their training as Special Museum Agents. Campers will have hands-on opportunities with real WWII artifacts plus a special behind-the-scenes showing of the Museum's 4D experience Beyond All Boundaries.
From cracking codes and encrypting messages to creating a disguise and writing with invisible ink, each day of Summer Spy Camp will feature different skills for campers to master. Exploring the history and tactics of WWII spies, campers will also have access to different areas and resources of the Museum campus, both indoor and outdoor. By the end of the week, it will also be time to put campers' newly honed skills to the test in a special culminating challenge. Each day of camp will also feature time when campers may choose to pursue activities from a range of different subjects in which they are most interested.
