Safety

 

COVID-19 Response

The camp will be held in person under the guidance of Northwestern University’s COVID-19 policy. There will be no online modality for the camp, unless a debater contacts us that they are unable to attend in person due to illness or an emergency. If there were to be an uptick in cases that would not allow us to move forward with an in-person camp, we would move to an online format. Plans are currently being made in the case that we do indeed need to move online.
