Catalyst Cyber Camp

About the Catalyst Cyber Camp

Catalyst Cyber Camp is an engaging and exciting virtual cybersecurity learning program for Brampton youth. Campers are immersed in solving cybersecurity challenges, in a competitive and fun virtual environment. The Camp introduces youth to cybersecurity as a career path while showing them how to protect themselves and their data online.

The Camp is a series of digital challenges within a fun and interactive storyline, containing more than 400 hours of cutting-edge games, activities and puzzles. The challenges increase in complexity as the game progresses. Campers participate entirely online, from their own homes and have the opportunity to compete to collect point and win prizes. Regularly scheduled webinars, “tips and tricks” sessions, and technical support will be available. There are no in-person activities.

Catalyst Cyber Camp is presented by the Rogers Cybersecure Catalyst at Ryerson University, in partnership with SANS Institute, Rogers Communications and City of Brampton.
