Mission Spy

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.

A typical itinerary for this holiday

Sample day on Mission Spy
Schedule Activity
Breakfast Off to the dining room with the rest of your group to fuel up for the day, you’ll need plenty of energy to keep you going. Breakfast includes cereals, toast, yogurts, porridge, and cooked breakfast – you choose!
Don’t forget to refill your drinks bottle before you head off to your first activity!
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!

Please note this is a sample itinerary for illustrative purposes only. Itineraries will be planned by the centre shortly before your arrival.


The 2–6 bedded en-suite lodges were built in 2009 and added to in 2010. We also have refurbished 4–8 bedded rooms in modern blocks – all of which are in the grounds of the main house. Caythorpe also has a modern tented village. Sited on a hard base with proper beds, each tent sleeps up to five and has easy access to nearby modern shower and toilet blocks.
