GSIS Spy Camp - Global Security and Intelligence Studies

GSIS Spy Camp - Global Security and Intelligence Studies

Registration for this program is closed for Summer 2020. Please check back in the Fall for updates as far as Summer 2021.

Join us for one week of pre-college, academic classes! Can you envision a career as an undercover agent?

This summer, students can immerse themselves in the world of security and intelligence to learn about espionage, investigative and surveillance techniques, as well as counterintelligence. Our College of Security and Intelligence is the first and only school in the nation, and is led by top-notch faculty with real world experience in protecting our government’s assets and secrets.

This program is not a computer cybersecurity program. Students will be conducting a series of on-campus and off-campus “OPS” using covert undercover identities. They will work in teams to develop a heightened sense of awareness of their surroundings, learn the importance of a mission, and use analytical skills by gathering, summarizing, and interpreting information collected through a series of missions and operations. Embry-Riddle’s Spy Program is a real hands-on introduction to the world of counterintelligence, and will cover a wide range of topics including surveillance and concealment, code breaking and elicitation, spy tools, and gadgets.

For: High school students ages 15-18 who are interested in person-to-person surveillance techniques and counterintelligence

Location: Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University - Prescott, 3700 Willow Creek Road, Prescott, AZ 86301

Registrations will be accepted until the program is full. The total enrollment capacity for this program is 16.

Summer Overnight Camps

Live on campus like Embry-Riddle students and explore career possibilities in flight, mechanical engineering, global security, or what it is like to be a NASA astronaut.

Embry-Riddle's overnight summer programs at the Daytona Beach Campus and Prescott Campus introduce the technology of today to the aviators, engineers, and astronauts of tomorrow.

Students live in on-campus dormitories — under the supervision of approved counselors — and share their initial experience of University living with other young people near their age
