Camp Invitation Document in Secret Agent Someone | World Anvil

Camp Invitation

Purpose

This document can come in many forms, be written in many different languages, and include several variables, but the main purpose of the Camp Invitation is to encourage parents to send their children to specialized summer camps. Unbeknownst to them, these supposed camps are actually ploys implemented by W.I.L.L.O.W.I.S.P. to collect more Junior Sprouts and train them to become operatives at the agency.

Historical Details

History

Camp Invitations have been sent out to parents for decades. With the changing years, the materials included have also evolved. The document has transitioned from a simple letter to an elaborate brochure filled with fun art, appealing photos, and happy testimonials from parents and children.
 

Public Reaction

Most parents do not at all suspect the true nature of the Camp Invitation. While some guardians completely ignore the packet they receive in the mail due to busyness or disinterest, others read over the contents and decide against sending their little ones. The documents, however, are fixed up to be enticing to both parents and children alike. photos of smiling kids, detailed descriptions of fun activities, and several reference materials that link to reputable-looking websites help to seal the deal. The address and phone numbers of these locations are also able to be easily pinpointed on a map. Sometimes, more than one attempt has to be made before the parent finally chooses to send their child, but Camp Invitations are proven to work at least 59% of the time. If the family is not receptive, either W.I.L.L.O.W.I.S.P. will be forced to give up on the potential prospect, or attempt to acquire them through different means.

Legacy

W.I.L.L.O.W.I.S.P. has been rewarded time and time again with the addition of bright young minds at the agency through these Camp Invitations. Many great operatives started their careers at the company through these channels, and the world (seen and unseen) would truly not be the same without them.
 
 
Commander McCox gives newbies the rundown:   The good ol' Camp Invitation. You probably got one, and now you're standing right here. Most kids who receive it have no idea what's awaiting them here. They don't even know where 'here' is. These Camp Invitations are sent out all around the world. Several W.I.L.L.O.W.I.S.P. Recruiters are strategically placed all over the globe. They observe unsuspecting people from all walks of life, all ages, all...everything. If the target is a grown-up, the Recruiter will likely just walk right up to them and ask if they'd like to join the organization. But, if the subject is a minor, things become a bit more complicated.   W.I.L.L.O.W.I.S.P. has to find a way to get the kids over into our Junior Sprouts programs, so they came up with a clever little ruse. Send the parents a letter inviting their bright and shing star to a fancy little summer camp somewhere that will help them to learn, grow, and become the best they can be. Don't worry. They'll be back home in time for the next school year.   I remember when I was little. I always wanted to go off to one of those fancy summer camps. My mom wouldn't let me, though. She said we could camp right there in the backyard. We wanted to buy a tent from the store, but she said we could make one out of an old blanket. Not the good, new blankets. The old, raggedy blankets. So, we had to make up our own games and stuff. We still had lots of fun. I remember, we'd pile up a bunch of sticks and throw some flashlights in there to make it look like a campfire. We weren't allowed to light a real fire. We might set the whole neighborhood ablaze!   Those flashlights sure did run out of batteries fast, though. And we didn't even have replacements. They've got C batteries, then there are D batteries, AA, AAA, heck, they've even got AAAA batteries. Then, those cute little cell button batteries. And they come in so many sizes, it's not even funny...

Oh God, those button batteries. Did you ever notice how expensive it is to replace them? Especially for those little laser pointers. It's actually cheaper to buy a whole new laser pointer loaded with button batteries than to get new batteries for the laser pointers! It makes you wonder how they can afford to sell those laser pointers for so cheap in the first place. But I'm wandering off topic...
