About AFA CyberCamp

The Air Force Association (AFA) CyberCamp program is designed to excite students new to cybersecurity about STEM career opportunities and teach them important cyber defense skills through hands-on instruction and activities. Through the camp, students will learn how to protect their personal devices and information from outside threats, as well as how to harden entire networks running Windows 7 and Ubuntu operating systems. The AFA CyberCamp will culminate in an exciting final team competition that simulates real cybersecurity situations faced by industry professionals and mimics AFA’s CyberPatriot National Youth Cyber Defense Competition.

The camp is designed for students new to cybersecurity, not veteran CyberPatriot Competitors.

Camp Details

Please review the particulars below and notify us if you have any questions.

Camp Fees and Payment: We have instituted a "pay what you can" policy for our Dig'nIT summer camps. We understand financial hardship and believe no child should be denied a great summer experience because of it. While completing Eventbrite registration, enter whatever amount you feel is fair for your financial position. Suggested value of our camps is $125 for full-day/week-long or $75 for half-day/week-long; but if you cannot afford some or all of registration this year, we understand. No need to explain.

Registration Guidelines: Registration is competitive and first-come, first-served. Registration will close on June 3, 2018. If you are paying by check or cash, payment is due to the Coeur d'Alene Harbor Center no later than the registration deadline, and can be mailed or delivered to: University of Idaho CDA, c/o AFA CyberCamp, 1031 N. Academic Way, Coeur d'Alene, ID 83814.

Campers are committing to attend the full length of the camp. If your camper cannot attend one or more days, we suggest attending next year as the camp experience is reliant on full-time attendance. If for some reason your registered camper won't be able to attend the camp, please notify UICDA as soon as possible so that we may admit a waitlisted camper. Refunds cannot be processed after the registration deadline.

Parents: Plan for yourself or a proxy to check your camper in or out each day of camp. Campers can be checked in no earlier than 30 minutes before camp and checked out no later than 30 minutes after camp.

For your child to attend, you must sign and return a standard camp liability waiver that can be found here: https://www.uidaho.edu/-/media/UIdaho-Responsive/Files/cda/extension-outreach/dignit/coeur-d-alene-center_summer2018-programs_waiver.ashx?la=en&hash=80482B8342A1DB15A251A6D4968360283B51035D.

This waiver must be received by UICDA no later than 5:00pm on the Friday before first day of camp.

Meals and snacks: At this time, we cannot accommodate dietary restrictions. If your camper has an allergy that prevents them from eating snacks provided, please be sure to send them with a snack. Snack options will consist of: string cheese, fruit, or granola bar. Please make sure your camper knows what they can or cannot consume as we cannot guarantee non-exposure to allergens.

Special Accommodations: If your camper has special needs and requires a special needs accommodation, please email Juli Anderson at julianaa@uidaho.edu detailing their needs before the camp so we may discuss.

Behavior Guidelines: University of Idaho Coeur d'Alene's Dig'nIT summer camps have a strict no-tolerance policy with regard to bullying or disruptive behavior. If bullying or behavioral issues occur, the instigator's parent/guardian will be contacted immediately for pick up.
