Camp Details 2023 2023-08-14T16:56:32+00:00

Welcome to NW Cyber Camp 2023, a summer cybersecurity camp taking place from July 24 to July 28 at Oregon State University in Corvallis, Mt. Hood Community College in Gresham, Portland Community College (Sylvania Campus) in Portland and University of Oregon in Eugene.

Our mission is to provide high school students with a comprehensive introduction to the rapidly growing field of cybersecurity. With hands-on learning experiences, industry guest speakers, and expert instructors, we believe that NW Cyber Camp 2023 will be a valuable experience for participants with no prior cybersecurity experience.

We are proud to offer Girls-Focused classes at Mt. Hood and Portland Community College to help encourage and support female students interested in cybersecurity. These classes are led by women and include expert women guest speakers.

Additionally, the camp includes an evening, industry-led banquet at Portland Community College (Sylvania Campus) organized in collaboration with the Technology Association of Oregon, providing an excellent opportunity to meet with cybersecurity companies, learn about academic opportunities and careers.

“It’s an incredible opportunity to either dive into cybersecurity for the first time, or rapidly expand your knowledge even with prior knowledge”

“Before attending NW Cyber Camp, I didn’t know about the dangers of technology and the need for future cybersecurity. Now, I am able to secure my settings to ensure my privacy, and I am much more mindful of thinking before I click. I feel very confident in the skills that I have learned this week, and I am able to apply them in order to protect my information. I am also very interested in the work of Cyber Security, and I now consider it as a possible career option.”

“This camp really changed how I thought about cybersecurity. It made me realize how many components there are and a lot of different things I can do with it. I learned so much and I’m so grateful for the opportunity.”

“This camp is amazing. You do not need to know anything about cybersecurity to do this camp. Everyone should do this camp so they can make their computers more secure.”

“The NW Cyber Camp provides the kind of education that you don’t see anywhere else at the middle and high school level.”

“The guest speakers, instructors, and software were professional quality. This really raises the experience of the camp.”

“Preparation for the jobs of tomorrow.”
