Mission Spy at boreatton park

Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to use all the survival and spy techniques you’ll learn throughout the week to complete your task.

What’s it all about?
Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to use all the survival and espionage techniques you’ll learn throughout the week to complete your task. This is a top secret assignment and you will have to take part in a range of activities which will test your skills.

What will I have to do?
As part of your training we will teach you the espionage techniques you need to complete your mission. You will learn spy skills such as forensics (finger printing, hair analysis), communications (signals, code making and breaking), surveillance (binoculars, mirrors, hiding and tailing) as well as taking part in activities such as abseiling, canoeing, climbing and more!

For the 10-13 age group your training culminates in a fantastic 24 hour camp-out, where you will learn to construct a shelter, build and light a fire and cook food.

Can I do other activities too?
Yes, this holiday is also designed to pack in loads of activities from our brilliant multi activity programme at each centre and there is also evening entertainment each night.

Morning Activities Half day of Spy Training
Lunch Worked up an appetite? Great – it’s time to replenish your energy stores with the dining room. If you have energy to spare after lunch your Group Leader will always be ready for a quick kickabout with a ball or you could relax and chat with your new friends.
Afternoon Activities Archery and Survivor
Dinner Time to eat again – a different menu each day (and did we mention, often evening meals come with a hot pudding too – or you can stick with fruit if you prefer).
Evening Ents Talent shows, campfires, quizzes and much more – your evening entertainment programme gives you the chance to get together with everyone else in your age group and have some laughs.
Bedtime Bedtime. The younger ones go first whilst older groups have time to chill out and chat or watch a DVD. Then it’s lights out and time to sleep ready to do it all over again tomorrow!

Accommodation

The mansion house was built in 1857 and is a rare ‘calendar’ house with four main doors, 12 chimneys and 365 windows. There are two floors of dorms with 8–16 beds per room and toilets/showers nearby. This is usually where the 7–10s, and some 10-13s stay.

The ‘Tall Timbers’ Lodges in the grounds have mainly four or six beds in a room with en-suite showers/toilets. These are normally for 10–13s and 13–16s. The 13–16s will also have their own chill out room.

Tents - Our tents stand on hard, ‘all weather’ bases and each has four proper beds. All the tents are grouped together in their own area of the site which has its own shower and toilet block.
