Calling all Spies! Ottawa’s favourite summer camp is recruiting!

We need your help. The devious Agent X has returned and they’re already causing chaos everywhere! After being captured by our agents last year, Agent X found a way to escape jail and is hiding somewhere in the Bunker. This summer, you can join our special agents at the Diefenbunker to capture that pesky Agent X for good.
As a spy-in-training, you will master the art of disguise, learn how to blend into any situation, try out different codes and languages, use tons of Cold War technology, experiment with the latest in spy science, and hone in on your interrogation skills to uncover the rogue agent inside our top-secret spy organization.
