GenCyber-logoGenCyber camps 2019

(updated Aug. 22, 2019)

Whatcom Community College offered three week-long, non-residential GenCyber day camps in 2019; two for middle school students (July 8-12 and July 15-19) and one for high school students (July 8-12).

Participants explored the high demand and rapidly growing field of cybersecurity. They learned through hands-on activities how cybersecurity professionals help protect information and information systems from unauthorized access, misuse, and destruction.

The GenCyber camps were offered at no cost to participants. Funding was provided jointly by the National Security Agency and the National Science Foundation through a GenCyber grant.

Cybercamps 2012-14

From 2012-14, Whatcom Community College offered an annual cybercamp for local high school students. The camps were funded through a National Science Foundation (NSF) grant the College received. Below is information about how other institutions can host their own cybersecurity camps. 

This site contains the materials used to create a high school cybersecurity camp. Currently we have posted the lab manual and one day competition materials. These materials were developed through funding from the National Science Foundation.
