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. Camp is planned for June 13th to June 18th.

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 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 140 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.
