GenCyber Camp 2020 - Canceled

GenCyber 2020 summer camps have been canceled at all sites across the nation. At DSU, we are deeply disappointed that we won’t be able to work with the campers in person this year. We really do look forward to camp every summer.

Please check this site near the end of May for some opportunities to participate in online activities. We plan to bring a few of our camp activities to you online.

Registration for the 2021 camp will be on this site. You can sign up to show interest late in 2020 with registration in Spring 2021. Please don’t do it now as we’ll also be updating the interest page. We don’t have dates, but we have all intentions of running a camp.

Thank you for your interest in the GenCyber program.


Learn, hack, fix, and explore cyber security.

DSU GenCyber is a Cyber Security camp designed for high school students entering grades 10 through 12 (currently in 9-11). Students will participate in hands-on education sessions with DSU professors, alumni, and current students as well as other industry professionals.

The camp's main purpose is to educate and excite groups of students that may not have considered studying and working in cyber security.

Students do not need any prior background or experience in security to attend. Computers are also provided so no need to bring your own.

We will be hosting one GenCyber camp in the summer of 2021 on the campus of Dakota State University in Madison SD. Later this summer we'll have an updated link for you to let us know of your interest in our camp!

If you're flying in for the camp, Sioux Falls, SD (FSD) is the closest airport. It's about 45 miles away. Let us know your flight plans, and we'll help arrange ground transportation to and from campus! We'll meet you at the airport and shuttle to campus.

You will be in the DSU dorms with current DSU students acting as camp counselors. Parking is free on campus, but we will be keeping everybody's car keys during the week. No worries -- you'll be plenty busy with camp anyway!


FREE! Yes, we said free! Just get registered so we can plan on your participation in the camp!

Dakota State has recently received funding from the National Security Agency (NSA) and National Science Foundation (NSF) to host a cyber security camp. The grant will allow DSU to host over 200 students on-campus for the camp at no cost to the student.

We're also going to load you up with some epic gear from the camp! All sorts of goodies will be yours to keep from the week.
