With Cleveland GiveCamp 2020 being canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it was known from the very beginning of planning for the eleventh Cleveland GiveCamp in 2021 that flexibility would be needed.
Two decisions were made early on to ensure a safe event in this time of a once-in-a-century pandemic:
First, to move the Cleveland GiveCamp 2021 Weekend from the third weekend in July to the fall. This would allow extra time for volunteers to get the coronavirus vaccination and to have time to learn from others working in office settings what safety procedures would be needed.
Second, to plan simultaneously both an in-person event and a virtual event, so as to be prepared for changes in the environment.
