Mission 1: BLIND ESCAPE - An explosive device goes off blinding everyone except one person, he can see but is paralyzed and can't move. He must guide his fellow agents by voice through a dangerous series of obstacles to rescue him and escape to safety. Teamwork and cooperation is your only hope for survival.
Mission 2: STEALTH HIKE - The group must traverse a route from Point A to Point B without being seen or heard. Enemy agents are on patrol, and have been warned of potential invaders. They will be looking for you.
Mission 3: ESPIONAGE ADVENTURE - You must recover an item of secret information. It is stored in a container in a distant location. You will follow directions that will take you to the container. When you arrive you find several booby trapped decoy containers near it. Which is the right one? If you carefully follow the clues, you will choose wisely. If you choose the wrong container, it could be a tragic end.
Mission 4: STAR TREK - Learn about the heavens and how to find your way at night using the stars, then trek across an open expanse under a luminous star filled sky.
Mission 5: JAWS OF DEATH - You will exercise your jaws on a buffet of sausages, cheese, crackers, cookies, veggies, cold cut sandwiches, soup, pizza nuggets & sauce, lemonade, and hot beverages.
Mission 6: SECRET STRANGER - Somewhere along the trail you will be approached by a stranger. Is he a friend or an enemy? Does he speak the truth or falsehoods? What does he want from you? Do you dare trust him?
Mission 7: ENEMY ENCAMPMENT - You must evaluate the strength of an enemy encampment and make a map of the location. You cannot be seen or heard in your attempt. The future of western civilization depends on your successful completion of this mission.
Mission 8: AGENT RESCUE - An agent has been hit. You will be given instructions for finding him. Treat his wounds, then evacuate him to safety. The trouble is, enemy agents are looking for him too. Who will find him first?
