UW-Green Bay Youth Camps

UWGB GenCyber Camp

GenCyber LogoThe GenCyber program provides summer cybersecurity camp experiences for campers in grades 9-12. The goals of the program are to help all campers understand correct and safe on-line behavior, increase diversity and interest in cybersecurity and careers in the cybersecurity workforce of the Nation.

Our vision is for the GenCyber program to be part of the solution to the Nation's shortfall of skilled cybersecurity professionals. Ensuring that enough young people are inspired to direct their talents in this area is critical to the future of our country’s national and economic security as we become even more reliant on cyber-based technology in every aspect of our daily lives.

GenCyber Camp has a waiting list, therefore cancellation notices are important to ensure proper waitlist campers have the opportunity to enroll in camp. We reserve the right to cancel any camp due to low enrollment.
