What is dcypher

A camp run by gamers for gamers

DCYPHER is a 4 day camp for those who love their computer a little too much!  We set up a network and game each night until the wee hours of the morning.  During the day we have various challenges and activities that will put your mind (and sometime body) to the test.

The camp is run by an organisation called Scripture Union (SU) Tasmania. SU is a Christian organisation that runs camps/school programs for youth and families in over 130 countries. DCYPHER has been running in Tassie for over 10 years and the staff and leaders come from all over the state to make it happen.

What sort of things will we be doing?

Each day we’ll be playing games such as Team Fortress 2, Mindustry, Empty Epsilon, and TrackMania (all free!) and other games. There are also team challenges!

Will there be religious stuff

Not if we can help it…

The camp is run and supervised by Christians from different churches around the state. Each of these guys believes its really important to think for yourself about what you value in life and also what you believe. A small part of DCYPHER (about 30mins) is set aside to have a chat about some life issues and give us all a chance to chew some stuff over.  It’s certainly not about being preached at.

we promise not to smack you over the head with a bible

We are there to have heaps of fun but because we see this as an important part of life we’ve included it in the program.

A few questions you might have

Do I need a computer?

Well, yes, and an internet connection. You’ll also need a free Discord account (discord.com/register) and a free Steam account (https://store.steampowered.com/join/?&snr=1_60_4__62).

What sort of computer do I need?

We play reasonably intensive games so you need to have a fairly decent computer… you can get away with as little as an i3, 4GB of RAM, DirectX 10 capable graphics card, at least 50GB free hard drive space and a working internet connection.

What do you mean an “online camp”?

Because of the lockdown caused by COVID-19, our usual physical camp wasn’t able to go ahead. So, as a substitute, we’re running the camp from home; everyone’s home! The camp will happen through the internet, with everyone connecting via Discord (a voice chat program). It’s free, and you don’t even have to download it.

Will there be meal breaks?

You bet! We’ll start after breakfast and have lunch and dinner breaks, as well as short breaks between activities.
