  • I Spy: A Civil War Spy Academy

    During this three-day camp, participants will hear the stories of several Civil War spies, both Union and Confederate, who did what they could to help their cause through covert means. Campers will learn about the skills needed to be an effective spy; everything from code breaking to effective disguises. Campers will also discover some the technology used during the Civil War that assisted spies in their work. The telegraph and the hot air balloon were both relatively new inventions that clandestine agents exploited during the war. By the end of the experience, not only will campers have a better understanding of spying during the Civil War but, they will also have had a hands-on experience pretending to be spies and complete a group spy mission. The camp is open to ages 8-11. Campers must pre-register and make payment. Camp cost is $150 per camper. Call (804) 861-2408 for more information and to pre-register for the camp
