The campers' computers, as well as the presentation computer, must have Internet access and must be capable of running VMWare Player, WinMD5, and 7-Zip, all of which are free software programs. Full technical specifications are available here.

Who is the ideal CyberCamp instructor?

While the curriculum is designed for novice students and includes instruction slides, local camp instructors should ideally have experience working with computers, basic knowledge of cybersecurity, and some familiarity with virtual machines. An approved adult instructor must be supplied by each indivudal host location. The recommended instructor and/or volunteer to student ratio is 1:15. ​​
