The CodeBreakHERS is a cybersecurity camp for high school girls taking place at USF from June 17th to June 21st. Our deadline for registration is May 15th 2019!

Our students will learn about

  • Operating a Linux-based system.
  • The basics of encoding the information, including error-correcting codes.
  • Applied cryptography, including blockchains and cryptocurrencies.
  • Capture the Flag competitions, and plenty of other hands-on activities.

Moreover, the students will receive the visit of actual CodeBreakHERS!

We have lots of scholarships available:

  • Half of our participants will receive need-based scholarships covering all costs (this means: the camp is free!).
  • Other participants can apply to a merit-based scholarship from USF Innovative education.


The regular cost of the camp is $450 per person for one week. It includes:

  • 5 lunches.
  • Academic instruction and oversight by USF faculty.
  • All materials including access to cryptography and programming software.
  • USF pre-College water bottle and drawstring bag.
