The Smithton 2016 AFA CyberCamp is designed to be executed over five days. It includes instruction modules, access to accompanying demonstration software, and access to novice Windows 7 and novice Ubuntu competition images on the approved camp’s scheduled competition day.

In 2009, the Air Force Association (AFA) created the CyberPatriot National Youth Cyber Education Program to inspire students toward careers in cybersecurity or other science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) disciplines critical to our nation’s future.​

Through the AFA CyberCamp program, schools and educational organizations can order a curriculum kit consisting of five four-hour instruction modules, accompanying instructor’s guides, student workbooks, demonstration software, and competition software that will teach students important skills in cyber safety and cybersecurity. Local organizations and volunteer instructors can execute the 20- hour curriculum set as a weeklong summer program supplemented by guest speakers and additional group activities. The camp’s 20-hour curriculum has been designed to be completed over five days (Monday through Friday), with the fifth day serving as a “mini-cyber competition day.”

The AFA CyberCamp Kit curriculum is organized as follows:

  • Module 1: Introduction to the CyberPatriot National Youth Cyber Defense Competition, cybersecurity career opportunities, cyber ethics, online safety, how computers work, and cyber threats
  • Module 2 : Cybersecurity principles, virtual machines, basic Windows security policies and tools, and account management
    • Students follow along on the provided Windows 7 demonstration image
  • Module 3: Windows file protections, auditing and monitoring, introduction to Server 2008 and introduction to Linux
