(ISC)2 Hawaii is teaming up with Kamehameha Schools to sponsor 2024 CyberCamps for middle and high school students!  The CyberCamps come in two varieties: standard and advanced, with each camp running for four hours a day over the course of a week.


This free program will teach students the basic skills needed to administer a Windows and Ubuntu Linux systems and provide basic data networking support. Middle and high school students are encouraged to attend these classes which will prepare them to successfully participate in the CyberPatriot National Youth Cyber Defense Competition during the school year.


Standard AFA CyberCamp teaches beginning 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.

What Is CyberPatriot?


CyberPatriot is the National Youth Cyber Education Program.  At the center of CyberPatriot is the National Youth Cyber Defense Competition. The competition puts teams of high school and middle school students in the position of newly hired IT professionals tasked with managing the network of a small company. In the rounds of competition, teams are given a set of virtual images that represent operating systems and are tasked with finding cybersecurity vulnerabilities within the images and hardening the system while maintaining critical services in a six hour period.  Teams compete for the top placement within their state and region, and the top teams in the nation earn all-expenses paid trips to Baltimore, MD for the National Finals Competition where they can earn national recognition and scholarship money.​
