Registration for Summer 2022 is now open!
Summer 2022 Session: July 25- 29, 2022
The USF High School CyberCamp is being offered in two formats this year, virtual and in-person, to expand reach and to provide options suitable for all families.
The in-person option will provide campers with a conference-like experience where they will have the opportunity to select sessions presented by various experts and teachers, participate in hands-on activities, and network with peers and industry professionals.
The virtual option will be similar to a virtual conference where campers will be given the opportunity to view and interact virtually with various presentations, participate in virtual experiences, and network through chat platforms. Both formats will run simultaneously and campers will be able to all interact regardless of the chosen format.
The USF CyberCamp encourages high school students (grades 9-12) from across the Tampa
Bay area to pursue careers in the rapidly growing cybersecurity industry. The week-long
program helps students learn what being an ethical hacker is all about.
Supported by local cybersecurity student groups and industry leaders, USF CyberCamp participants explore cybersecurity careers while networking with industry professionals within the Tampa-area cybersecurity community. The course curriculum is supported by Florida CyberHub resources and lesson plans from the Florida Center for Instructional Technology. Campers will work through hands-on cybersecurity exercises with experts virtually, engage with lectures from industry and community leaders, and network with cybersecurity students and professionals during this five-day camp.
Scholarship applications will be accepted until April 30, 2022. Please note, the scholarship applications will be evaluated as they are received and the application may close earlier if all available scholarships are awarded.
If you are applying for a scholarship, please do not pay for camp registration prior to receiving a scholarship decision and code. We are unable to issue refunds after camp registration has been processed.
