The CSUB GenCyber Squad program is a cybersecurity summer camp in August 2024 for middle school students from the Greenfield Union School District (GFUSD). The camp provides a series of hands-on activities to learn about multiple aspects of cybersecurity, ranging from technical to social. The goals of the camp are to inspire a passion for cybersecurity while building cybersecurity knowledge and confidence in the students.

The camp is planned as an in-person activity at CSUB from August 5, 2024 to August 9, 2024. Pre-camp and post-camp activities will also take place at Greenfield school sites.
