One Thousand Days Transformed - The Campaign for Cedarville

Cedarville University's GenCyber camp will equip and inspire the next generation of cybersecurity superheroes!  

At GenCyber Camp, you’ll explore the field of cybersecurity through interactive, hands-on activities and discussions. You’ll experience engaging group activities, exceptional teaching, and hands-on laboratory exercises.  At the end of camp, you’ll have a good grasp of cybersecurity concepts, an overview of the cybersecurity career field and where you might fit in, and the basic skills you need to stay safe online.

GenCyber Camp is sponsored by the National Security Agency. It is open to 30 students entering 12th grade (graduating class of 2024). Students will be selected from a review of applications. The focus of the camp is on beginners to cybersecurity, but advanced students are also welcome to apply. All students regardless of skill level will be challenged and will grow their cyber knowledge and skills.
