Parking Locations and Check In

Parking is available between two different parking lots. We will have volunteers assisting with parking on Friday directing people to the LeanDog parking lot (1) and to the Ultimate Air Shuttle parking lot (2) which has an entrance on the east end of the airport lot and exit on the west.

Do not park in the general Burke airport lot if the gate does not automatically open for you or they will charge you to park.

If you are going to keep your vehicle in a lot overnight, you must park in the LeanDog lot. Check in will be in the middle lobby of Burke Lakefront Airport as normal.

In case of road closures…

In the past, there have been road closures some mornings that make getting to GiveCamp difficult. The easiest route has been to take North Marginal from East 55th as shown in the following map:

Cleveland GiveCamp is on Slack at: CleGiveCamp.Slack.com

Cleveland GiveCamp uses Slack to communicate between teams and across disciplines during the event. We automatically add volunteers to the account each year prior to the event.

Be sure to check out the specialized Cleveland GiveCamp Slack channels #design, #wordpress, and #project-pm groups for specific requests. Try to keep the #announcements channel open for high priority, special announcements to everyone (like food is ready). Feel free to create new channels for your team.

Indians Volunteer Challenge 2019 Information — Volunteer, then go Cheer!

The Cleveland Indians (@Indians) and Business Volunteers Unlimited (@BVUVolunteers) have partnered up again for the Indians Volunteer Challenge by offering 2 free game tickets to a single game to individuals who volunteer for at least 4 hours between April 1 and August 31, 2019.

Basic info can be found on BVU’s website and GiveCamp organizers will be providing more info to volunteers during GiveCamp weekend.

Volunteer Resources Section is now in Beta

We’re created a section of resource posts for volunteers to reference as they build their projects. Members of Team Y will be adding additional resources to this area throughout the weekend. Resources include WordPress Plugins, links to documentation, and suggested best practices (among other things.) Visit the Resources section.
