“Mission Control- this is Spy Camp. Do you copy?” This camp, should you choose to accept it, will hone your trap making, puzzle solving, and hacking abilities in order to become the most awesome agent that’s ever lived. Field agents will learn from experienced spies about advanced Arduino and Makey Makey electronics, coding, improvising with tools at hand, and spy etiquette for creating gadgets to add to their arsenal. Various gadgets will be tested against fellow agents to ensure they can withstand the most evil of enemies.
