The Intelligence Community’s Spy Camps
This chapter provides an overview of America’s spy agencies. The high school program “Spy Camp” was carried out by Trinity University in Washington, DC using part of a pilot grant from the U.S. Office of the Director of National Intelligence (DNI) to create an “Intelligence Community Center of Academic Excellence” (or IC Center). It argues that the goal of the IC Center program was to increase the pool of future applicants for careers in the FBI, the CIA, the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA), and other organizations that make up the U.S. “intelligence community”. The idea for IC Centers came about in the wake of the 9/11 attacks, when both the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives held hearings on how the country’s spy agencies missed clues that might have led them to foreseeing the World Trade Center and Pentagon attacks.
