Former Camp Peary was established in WW2 as a training base for Navy Seebees.
In 1951 it was transferred to CIA, becoming a Federal facility and redesignated Armed Forces Experimental Training Activity (AFETA), to "develop prototype training programs for military and civilian departments of the Federal government."
Currently the FED Williamsburg facility is called the Special Training Center or STC, nicknamed The Farm http://www.ciaagentedu.org/training/
The CIA's Directorate of Operations uses the facility for training ranging from the Basic Operations Course (BOC) through advanced weapons and explosives training, driving techniques, field surveillance, infiltration and exfiltration, and other clandestine operations and paramilitary skills. Students in the BOC may be seen in near-by Williamsburg and neighboring communities practicing surveillance and counter-surveillance techniques, clandestine communications methods, brush passes, servicing dead drops, etc.
