Virtual Cybersecurity Camps: Lessons Learned


Cybersecurity camps provide participants with an opportunity to learn about cybersecurity in a fun and safe environment. Traditionally, such camps, like many others, are held in-person. However, the COVID-19 pandemic created unique challenges and also an opportunity to counter those challenges—holding a cybersecurity camp virtually. While countless other camps, both cybersecurityrelated and others, moved to a virtual environment so that such camps could continue to be held, this paper presents some lessons learned and suggestions that may be helpful to others deciding to hold a virtual camp in the future. Some of the lessons learned may be specific to a cybersecurity camp, but most would be applicable to a broad audience.
