Welcome to the exciting world of Spy Tech! Join us at one of the World’s Leading Spy Camps for Kids!

In our Summer Spy Tech Camps, campers learn how to utilize SPY TECHNOLOGY to acquire information and create defense systems in today’s fast and changing world by monitoring and securing locations using drones, robotic alarms/surveillance, and encryption/decryption of codes.  Campers also use Minecraft™ to set up surveillance and model spy games and activities.  On the Friday of each week, campers engage in spy challenges and put their newly acquired skills to work!

During the week, in addition to using our digital drone simulator to learn the basics, campers will learn how to utilize and covertly fly actual drones with challenging stipulations, create robots with spy bots and alarm systems, create an underground maze in the subway system of a large Minecraft™ city with active traps that need to be disabled by competing teams, learn how to use a Cipher utilizing Scratch or Python coding to write code languages and decipher them, and engage in fun and action-packed challenges on Friday at our Lavner Spy Games event!

Campers are grouped in teams and engage in projects with a strong focus on strategic planning, creativity, communication, skill development, and teamwork!

Valuable Learning Opportunities:

Use Spy Technology to Acquire Information: With technology improving so rapidly and security concerns changing quickly, being knowledgeable about this type of spy technology can be an asset!

Use Spy Technology For Defense Capabilities:  Defense is just as important as offense, and the protection of important information through surveillance, security, and encryption is paramount. At camp, we make sure you learn these skills!

Customize & Fly Drones: Gain experience with our drone simulators, then fly the real thing! Improve skills in handling drones, explore the electronic configuration, and customize drones for use in spy challenges!

Improve Logical Thinking Skills: Using spy technology to acquire information from a (sometimes protected) source requires a lot of thought and problem solving, and will stretch your logical thinking skills!

Be Creative, Be a Visionary: To set up effective monitoring systems in challenging environments, you may want to think of solutions that are unique and unanticipated.  Here is your chance to think outside of the box and create/customize methods and machines to help your team!

Learn Encryption/Decryption via Ciphers using Scratch or Python™ Coding: Campers will have the opportunity to write a program that creates a cipher to encrypt and decrypt secret messages! No experience in Scratch or Python is required.

Gain Experience with Morse Code:  Gain experience using Morse Code, an incredibly famous and proven method for covert communication.

Collaborate with Teammates: Campers learn a lot from instructors and other campers. This is a great opportunity to share and implement ideas with enthusiastic teammates and work together in a group to accomplish goals.

Lavner Spy Games: Compete in friendly and exciting spy challenges/competitions on Fridays!

“Campers, your mission is to learn more about Spy Tech, acquire a wide variety of skill sets in technology and its application to being a spy, be part of one of the leading Spy Camps in the world, and have tons fun at camp… Do you accept?”

Please Note:  Flying drones is banned in New York City and drones will not be flown at our New York City camps.  Campers will use our digital drone simulators with remote controls via our computers, which simulates flying and controlling drones with touch sensitive remotes.
