Calling all young secret agents! Join us at the Diefenbunker for week-long Spy Camp, taking place over March Break, Summer, and Winter holidays.

From coding to disguising, to using science and technology, discover what makes a world-class secret agent. Practice skills like solving puzzles, observation, and investigation, while completing top-secret missions and finding clues to solve the mystery of Agent X.

Spend your week exploring inside and outside of Canada’s most significant Cold War artifact: a once-top secret, four-storey underground bunker, now a museum and national historic site.
