AFA CyberCamps are designed for high school and middle school students who are just getting into cybersecurity or who have cybersecurity knowledge and want to learn more. Camps are hosted by approved organizations and institutions that register with the CyberPatriot Program Office. These organizations include but are not limited to AFA Chapters, schools, universities, CAP squadrons, companies in industry, boys and girls clubs, etc.
here are two types of AFA CyberCamps : Standard and Advanced.
Standard AFA CyberCamp teaches beginner students the basics while Advanced AFA CyberCamp incorporates more complex concepts geared towards students who have previously participated in a CyberCamp or participated in the CyberPatriot competition.
Standard CyberCamp attendees do not need to have any prior knowledge of cybersecurity to participate. Some very basic knowledge of computer hardware (knowing how to use a mouse, browse the internet, identify common computer icons, etc.) is helpful but not necessary.
Advanced CyberCamp attendees must possess some prior knowledge. Most of the Advanced curriculum builds on material covered by our Standard camp and also draws from the activities/tasks in the CyberPatriot competition. Prior exposure to CyberPatriot or similar skill levels are recommended.
A basic English reading level is essential bor both as many individual and group activities are written directives and students must work alone or within small groups to accomplish tasks.
The Virtual Standard CyberCamp will be held June 14th – 18th from 9-3:30 PM
The Virtual Advanced CyberCamp will be held July 12th-16th from 9-3:30 PM
