Have you ever dreamed of being a spy? Does working undercover sound like a career you would like? This summer, students can immerse themselves in the world of security and intelligence with this six-day, overnight camp program.
From the moment you arrive at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University Spy Camp, you will be immersed into the world of intelligence. Just like a real spy, students will work with a team, under the facade of cover-names, to investigate and uncover a spy during the week. Students are introduced to the tools and tactics used in the protection of the United States of America.
While at Spy Camp, students are led by top-notch faculty with real-world experience in protecting our government’s assets and secrets. Also involved are current Embry-Riddle students who are in the Global Security and Intelligence Studies degree program. Campers will develop a heightened sense of awareness of their surroundings, understand the importance of a mission, and develop analytical skills by gathering, summarizing, and interpreting information collected through a series of missions and operations. The students will additionally participate in a series of lectures covering everything from the history of spies, to tools of the trade. Campers will also leave with an introduction to a wide range of topics including surveillance and concealment, code breaking and elicitation, spy tools, gadgets and weaponry.
Students who participate in Spy Camp get to experience the best the nation has to offer in its first and only College of Security and Intelligence, while getting to know the mild climate, beautiful high-desert campus of Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University. ERAU’s Spy Camp is a real hands-on introduction to the world of counter-intelligence.
