2) period changes

We will only honor changes for:
1) incorrect course level
2) classes that differ from original request
3) missing or double periods (students should see counselor during period of issue)

-Sweetwater High School
-Castle Park Middle School
-Eastlake Middle School

Registration is only available for current Sweetwater Union High School District (SUHSD) middle & high school students grades (7th & 11th). Lunch will be provided for the students. Student transportation won't be available -please plan accordingly by selecting a location close to you.

How many spaces are available at each location? Check out the list at the next link: goo.gl/oIVmhl

Why attend the CyberCamp?
Do you have an interest in cybersecurity and computers? Are you a beginner and would like to learn more about securing networks and hardening Operating Systems? The CyberCamp is the perfect first step towards learning more about cybersecurity!

Do I need any special skills or previous knowledge to attend the CyberCamp?
Camp attendees do not need to have any special skill set to participate in the CyberCamp. Some very basic knowledge of computer hardware (knowing how to use a mouse, start a monitor, can identify Windows start button icon, etc.) is helpful but not necessary. A basic English reading level is essential as many individual and group labs and activities are written directives and students must work alone and with small groups to accomplish tasks. The most important skill to possess is the passion to learn and a positive attitude!
