Camp Coordinator Pre-Checklist
The person that applies to host an AFA CyberCamp will be the sole point of contact for the entire camp process. This person known as the Camp Coordinator will facilitate all logistics of the camp and will be responsible for distributing any information to other appropriate parties associated with their camp.
During the registration process, applicants will be asked to review the Camp Coordinator Pre-Checklist and verify they understand the responsibilities associated with hosting an AFA CyberCamp.
Who is the Ideal Instructor/Assistant?
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 individual host location. The recommended instructor and/or volunteer to student ratio is 1:15.
All instructors/assistants must be 18 years or older and must complete a child protection program of the hosting location's choice prior to the first day of camp. As an option, the Boys Scouts of America offers a free child safety program that is open to the public: Boys Scouts Youth Protection Program.
Similar to the Camp Coordinator Pre-Checklist, the Camp Instructor/Assistant Checklist will help Camp Coordinators identify the best possible fit for an ideal instructor for their camp session.
