Roane State partners with Y-12 to host third-annual Cybersecurity Summer Camp

UPPER CUMBERLAND – Roane State Community College and Y-12 National Security Complex are announcing the return of Cybersecurity Summer Camp for 2022. 

Two sessions will be held this year, one in mid-June for high-school-aged students and another in July for middle-school-aged students. Registration will be available beginning on Monday, April 18.

Roane State partnered with Y-12 in this effort to inspire the next-generation workforce and help develop talents that can be used to protect our nation’s most valuable information. 

During the camp, students learn about digital forensics, IP scanning, data reconnaissance, and many other topics – all key components of Y-12’s best-in-class cybersecurity program. Additionally this year, campers will focus on network visualization, mapping and simulation.

2022 camp dates are as follows: 

  • Session 1 (grades 9-12): June 13-16, 9 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. ET
  • Session 2 (grades 6-8): July 11-14, 9 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. ET

Previous camps have attracted dozens of students eager to sharpen their cyber skills. Thanks to positive feedback received about the virtual option offered the last two years, the camp will once again be held virtually in 2022. This means no travel will be required for families and students from across the area can participate more easily.

Registration is $25 per camper and will cover the cost of a camp t-shirt. Parents may register students online at when the registration window opens at 9 a.m. ET on April 18, 2022. Space is limited for both sessions and spots are expected to fill quickly.

Questions about the camp can be directed to Sonya Parker, Roane State Community College Workforce Training Manager, by emailing or calling (865) 481-2031.
