Basically, I really wanted to show my kids Spy Kids so I made it my whole theme. There was A LOT of prep to do but it was completely worth it and they thought it was so cool. My camp was 8 days total, 4 days for 3rd/4th (20 students) and 4 days for 5th/6th (16 students).

(I used a special Spy Font I found online but is no longer on my computer so all the font looks ugly now. Sorry!)

Day 1:

1. I introduced the rules and showed them the trailer for Spy Kids.

2. Explained what a spy is and taught them vocabulary they'll need for the camp.

3. I split the students into 4 teams that each represented a country.

4. Two Truths and a Lie

- Since we had a lot of students, we did 3 truths and 2 lies for the 3/4th graders.

5. They made ID badges! We had a lot of random lanyards in our room so we just used

those and had the kids put their fingerprint instead of a picture.

6. We let each kid pick a random letter from a bag and gave them a worksheet.

Whichever name corresponds with that letter is their secret codename that no one

can find out.

7. I showed a scene from National Treasure where they use lemon juice and heat to

make invisible ink.

8. We made our own invisible ink! We didn't want to use heat with the kids so we

made it using grape juice, baking soda, cotton swabs, and water but there are other

recipes online. They then practiced writing their codenames with it and each group

member had to reveal their own group members codenames. (But only that group

should know their members names.)

** The codenames I'm attaching were for my 5th and 6th graders. I used very very easy names for the 3rd and 4th graders but I don't have them anymore.
