College hosts cybersecurity camps in June and July

TRAVERSE CITY — Registration is now open for two cybersecurity summer camps for students in grades 6-12 that Northwestern Michigan College will host at its University Center campus in June and July.

Scheduled for June 21-25 and July 12-16, the camps are an opportunity for students to get a head start on a STEM career. Held from 9 a.m.–noon, Monday–Friday each week, students will learn the basics of cybersecurity from NMC Computer Information Technology instructor Scott Goethals. On the last day of class, they’ll participate in a national competition that includes all of the summer campers across the country.

Cost is $20. Register online (June camp, July camp) or go to and search for “CyberPatriot summer camp - Northwestern Michigan College.”

This is the third year NMC has hosted the camps. The 2020 event was virtual due to COVID-19.
