WEFOUNDCamp X


Camp X was the unofficial name of the secret Special Training School No. 103, a Second World War paramilitary installation for training covert agents in the methods required for success in clandestine operations. [1] It was located on the northwestern shore of Lake Ontario between Whitby and Oshawa in Ontario , Canada. The area is known today as Intrepid Park , after the code name for Sir William Stephenson , Director of British Security Co-ordination (BSC), who established the program to create the training facility.

The facility was jointly operated by the Canadian military, with help from Foreign Affairs and the RCMP but commanded by the BSC; it also had close ties with MI-6 . [2] In addition to the training program, the Camp had a communications tower that could send and transmit radio and telegraph communications, called Hydra. [3]

Established December 6, 1941, the training facility closed before the end of 1944; the buildings were removed in 1969 and a monument was erected at the site. [4] [5]

World War II is raging throughout Europe, but things seem calm in the sleepy little town of Whitby Ontario. Little do brothers Jack and George realize that the war is closer than they could imagine. Wandering through the bush they are confronted by armed guards who first threaten and then drive them off the property. Were they army guards, or something else - something more sinister? The boys investigate and discover a world of spies and counter-spies and become involved in an adventure where what is truth and who to trust are not so clear.

This novel is based on the events surrounding the real  Camp X  in Whitby Ontario where hundreds of allied spies were trained during World War II under the direction of Sir William Stephenson, the man called 'Intrepid'.
