Due to the spread of COVID-19, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the in-person events of the North America Programming Camp. The University of Central Florida has shifted to online-only classes for the remainder of the semester and has mandated that all events featuring large groups be cancelled or postpones. Our event coordinators and trainers are working to find a virtual solution so that the camp may still continue remotely for our participants. Those details will be shared directly with NAPC registrants.

Frequently Asked Questions

Question 1: Do coaches have to pay a registration fee to participate at NAPC?

Answer 1: No, coaches do not have to pay a registration fee to participate in the camp.

Question 2: What is the process to participate in the NAPC?

Answer 2: To participate in the NAPC you first have to apply, indicating interest. In order to apply for the NAPC please visit the NAPC website, go to the Schedule/Registration/Logistics page and under the Application/Registration part click the link and apply. It is expected that all members of the applicant team will choose to participate at the NAPC; their coaches are also encouraged to attend.

Applications for the NAPC have two distinct deadlines:

  • Early Bird Apply Deadline: February 7, 2020
  • Regular Apply Deadline: February 28, 2020

To participate in the NAPC you secondly have to register for the NAPC, indicating your time commitment for the week long (March 30-April 3) camp. The NAPC selection committee will invite NAPC applicants to register for the NAPC by sending to select NAPC applicants a registration link (the registration link is different than the apply link). All the North America finalists, if they apply, will be invited to register for the NAPC. Teams who have applied for the NAPC and were selected by the NAPC selection committee to participate in the NAPC will be sent a registration link at two designated dates, shown below:

  • Early Bird Registration Notification: Shortly after February 7, 2020
  • Regular Registration Notification: Shortly after February 28, 2020

The registration fee to participate in the NAPC is $100, per student for early bird applicants. The registration fee to participate in the NAPC is $150, per student, for regular applicants.

Question 3: Are all the trainers shown at the NAPC website be for onsite training at NAPC?

Answer 3: No, only a few of the trainers shown at the NAPC website will participate in the onsite training at NAPC.


Answer 4: Space at the ICPC NAPC is limited to approximately 33 teams. Should demand exceed capacity, teams advancing to the ICPC World Finals from North America Championship (NAC) are guaranteed a slot. Additional registration preference consideration will be given based on institution/team regional performance, future ICPC eligibility of team members, the number of teams already registered for the NAPC from the same institution, other factors.
