For the first time in history, the Air National Guard Camp Fund Program has donated money for a unique kind of children's camp. This year, the Niagara Falls Air Reserve Station opens its gates for the children of military families to attend Spy Camp.
The weeklong day camp runs from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. beginning Aug. 12 and ending on Aug. 16. Registration is $25, which includes a camp T-shirt, water bottle, lunch and snacks. Children from 8-12 years old who have parents who are currently or previously associated with any branch of the military, on active duty, a veteran, or part of the Wounded Warriors or Fallen Warriors program are eligible to attend this special camp.
Registration has no deadline, and walk-in registration is welcome for the first day of camp. Pre-registration forms are preferred by Friday, Aug. 9.
Spy Camp features many interactive, educational and interesting activities designed to entertain the campers with all of the tricks that spies use to investigate and catch a criminal. Campers will learn about code breaking, disguises, crime scene clues, DNA and more. Just-for-fun activities will include spy games, special guests, a mascot creation and mystery theater lunch on Friday.
The camp's funds are provided by the ANGCFP with the intent to provide military families with a way to give their children a fun activity for the summer along with other children who know what it's like to be part of a military family. The ANGCFP has provided funds for numerous other summer day camps that have been given excellent reviews by the parents of campers.
