DSU Cyber Espionage Camp

High schoolers can trade their bats and gloves for laptops this summer by registering for Dakota State University’s first-ever Cyber Espionage Camp from June 24 to 26.


This unique camp is designed to introduce high school students in grades 9-12 to

national security and cyber espionage through a mix of live-action and online games,

exercises, and in-person simulations.


Inspired by the huge success of DSU’s GenCyber camps, DSU faculty, students from

the Cyber Leadership and Intelligence major, and industry professionals will lead the

hands-on learning sessions throughout the free, multi-day camp.


The activities created for the camp will introduce attendees to basic concepts from the

CLI major, while engaging them in thinking about how technology affects international

relations, diplomacy, and law enforcement, he explained. Some of the activities include

attending a spy/murder mystery dinner party, participating in a game of Diplomacy, and

dealing with the fallout of a fictional country experiencing a major national crisis.


Registration will remain open until filled or Monday, June 10, whichever comes first.
